Engine randomly cut out when going over rough roads/ bumps.

Hello Tori, I think you have a heat related ignition failure. Your truck runs fine until an electrical component warms up and quits running but will restart after it cools down. I suspect you have a bad ignition module and/or bad pick up coil inside of the distributor.

Hi Pam,
Sound like the mass air flow sensor.
While your car is running ,lift the hood .Follow the hose from the throttle body to the air filter box.There will be a sensor mounted as part of the hose. Tap on the top of the sensor with a screwdriver handle a couple of time, if faulty it will stall the engine out.

The only manufacturer that uses a fuel cut off switch or inertia switch is Ford. Your jeeps fuel pump power supply is ultimately controlled by the cars computer. If you suspect there is a fuel pressure issue the first step would be to actually check fuel pressure with a fuel assure gauge. Or listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump run for a couple of seconds when you turn the key to the run position. If there is no fuel pressure or you can not hear the fuel pump run than the next step is to check for power to the fuel pump. You should be able to find the fuel pump harness back by the fuel tank. There will be a connector where the fuel pump harness plugs into the vehicle harness. You'll want to check for power to the pump by back probing the wires at that connector. There should be power for a couple of seconds when the key is turned on and any time the engine is cranking. If there is power the fuel pump is bad. If there is no power let me know and I'll be happy to help you with some further diagnosis.

Starts but takes a few seconds to start

Hey there jonablac,
well if it starts and then takes a minute to start up all the way from trying to die or cut out the you need to turn up you engines idle speed or if it starts then dies and won't start again wait a couple of minutes and then try to start it back up beacuase it could mean your engine has gotten a little flooded or you don't have you vehicle's engine idiling speed adjusted fast enough.

I hope this helps,

I started my 92' Geo Tracker and started down my drive way when it just cut off. Now it will not start back, it is getting fire to the distributor cap,is full of gas and wil turn over but not start! Please...

Is the fuel pump running? When you turn the key to the run position (the dash lights come on), you should hear a humming sound coming from the gas tank for a few seconds. Thats the fuel pump running to pressurize the system before starting. It's kind of hard to hear, so get a friend to sit in the car while you lay on the ground near the gas tank. Have them turn on the key and listen. No hum means the fuel pump isnt working.

1986 subaru gl wagon non turbo stays idiling at 2500

Hate to tell you this but sounds like the problem is a vacuum leak. This will make the engine rev. Check all the vacuum lines before making any adjustment. Have to dig out some of my old books to find factory settings for that carb. Good luck and I will try to find in case you need them to restore carb settings.
