SOURCE: Car sometimes dies at idle and does not set a code

this can be caused by and usually is a sludged up idle speed control valve, follow the instructions below to correct this
, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: 2001 ford 4.6 liter idles rough sometimes dies

may need 1 0r more coil packs replaced,or it could be what happened to my 2000 4.6---1 lifter expanded out and wouldnt collapse,causing the rocker arm to fall out of place and the valve could never open...try unplugging 1 coil pack at a time while running and listen for a change in the way it runs,if there isnt a change then its probably a bad coil pack,find a cylinder that runs and swap the coil packs,if no difference then its probably the valve staying shut.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 4X4, the truck dies in reverse


I have no idea if this relates to your problem or not but a fairly infrequent problem with Jeeps exists in some models if the transmission bolts loosen. Our son's problem also involved backing up (only; forward=no problem) and having the engine cut out as sometimes die. On a Jeep forum, a poster warned that if the hard-to-reach upper bell housing bolts weren't tightened properly, they would loosen and cause this problem.

Dies after driving for 10 minutes


I think I'd have to gamble on a new relay, and clean up contacts in those sockets with electrical cleaner, then add dielectric grease before plugging in new one. Do the pump first obviously.

Oldsmobile alero 2001


Hi, It seems most of your prob could be from worn engine mounts. Have a helper shift from 1st to reverse and see how much the engine moves. [at a fast idle, brake held firm, stand to the side]
This will not cure the prob! Yet My thought is that you will now need to check all the wiring that was involved in this movement.Hope this helps you! Frankster016
