Check the load reduction relay. I had this happen twice and repaired twice on my TDI mk IV. It throws no codes and almost has to be witnessed by a mechanic to be believed.

My 1999 the engine keeps just shut off while driving down the road the engine keeps turning but wont crank I put some engine starter in the carb.and it tried to start.could it be the fuel pump


if it was the fuel pump engine should start with starter spray at least for a second or two, so, it sounds like your fuel pump is bad.
turn ignition to run and try hearing the pump run.

03 saturn view cranks but wont start


first of all, check the fuel pump relay to see if it is going bad. if it is ok! also try this, Have a person turn key to on,, and put your hand on bottom of fuel tank. if the pump is turning on, you will feel a vibration in tank. you may have to do this a few times. the pump only turns on for a few seconds to pressurize system, or to get fuel to the engine. just keep turning key on and off to recycle fuel pump. Good-Day! Hope this helps! relay for pump may be bad.< Check this first.

1999 honda crv shuts off while in drive.


next time it dies, cranks and wont start, do this if you have someone else with you. carry a spare spark plug, then when the problem arises pull off a plug wire put the spare plug into it and ground the end somewhere in the engine bay, then have someone bump the key and watch to see if the plug has a spark or not, that will at least tell you what problem to go searching for. if it had air, it still does when it dies so it will either be spark or fuel related. just because the pump runs, doesnt mean the ecu is telling the injectors to fire, so still could be a fuel issue. is the check engine light on?

Replaced starter and wont start. Im wondering if it is the shut off switch in the trunk? does the switch have to be up or down?


the starter cranks the engine, the switch in the trunk has a button that you depress to reset the fuel pump. if the fuel pump doesnt operate then the switch may tripped, the button is DOWN. So does the engine crank? does it not crank? cranks but wont run? if it cranks but wont run, then check the switch in the trunk. Power goes to that switch and then to the pump, so if that switch has power going through it, and the pump doesnt work, the pump is bad. when turning the key on you should hear the pump go on for 2 seconds.

Replaced fuel pump. Car will start, but after 15-20 minutes it shuts off. What is the problem?


Have to check and see if there is still fuel getting to it, really sounds like the crank sensor, it always acts that way.... See if your getting fuel and spark after it shuts off, should be able to hear the fuel pump buzzing even if it wont start. if no spark replace crank sensor.....

2001 dodge neon wont start and then the engine dies while driving


When this happens you should check to see if it has spark. The coils could be going bad or the main relay could be going bad if it has no spark. If it has spark then check for fuel pressure. If it doesnt have fuel pressure chances are that its the pump. I think those cars have a problem with pumps going out in them.
