It sounds like you have a bad MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). This is in your air inlet tube, pull this out and check to see if there is any corrosion on it. If is one that has a coiled exposed wire, then ensure that the wire is not broke.

2010 subaru forester engine cuts out


consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

Occasionally when I drive my 1992 nissan truck to work, it doesn't want to start back when I stop at the store about 20mins from my house, but after it sits for about an hour it will crank right up


If it's not running hot it possible it is your fuel pump going bad somethings it might help if u turn the switch on but do not crank it cut it back off cut it back on but do not crank it do that 3 times to pump the fuel pressure back up after that then try to crank it for the time being till u get it fixed

Car cut off while driving


Hi,
Bad news....if you ran low on oil, the car likely sustained engine damage and will need major engine repair/replacement.

A mechanic can determine the exact issue.

Might be a leak on your brake booster (this will most probable give you a hard brake pedal or a "sucking sound " when applying brakes) also check the vacumm pipe from the engine to the brake booster. It might have a leak, so when you press the brakes it influences the air mixture.
