The next time it fails to start you need to have the fuel pressure tested, the electric fuel pump might be sticking off due to wear.

Why does my car try to die when i drive down the road?


Try to check the ignition coil, when you driving it become hot then the car dies end won't start. After awhile when it's cold, then it will start. Replace the ignition coil.
I hope it solves the problem

Car starts fine after sitting awhile. If you drive awhile then stop and try to restart it won't.


Check the electronics,cam sensor or crank sensor these are the culprits.

Engine turns over but will not start only when engine is warm


my car has the same exact problem!! i have 2 pop the clutch 2 get it started when it is hot. Mine starts great when its cold or hasn't ran 4 awhile but when we are driving around for more than about 20 min in it when we stop it doesn't start at all. it wont even turn over. so i have 2 have my husband push it while i pop the clutch & then it starts & runs fine till the next time we turn it off. its not a battery problem as we'v replaced the battery, & the starter & the alternater are fine as we'v had them tested. hopefully someone that knows & has fixed this problem can answer this mystery problem!! hopefully some1 can :D

1998 1.9l dohc sw2 car will start when cold but not when hot starts fine after it cools down


When the vehicle is hot, does the Starter turn the engine over? If not, your starter is being affected by Heat soak, and you must replace the starter. If the starter does turn over the engine, you have a sensor that is failing due to heat soak, or your ECM is failing when hot. This is much more difficult to diagnose since each sensor will have to be monitored to find the faulty sensor.

1998 chry. t&c lxi,runs great but once in awhile when you go to start it , it will start but stall like it ran out of gas it will do this for approx. 3 tries then there is nothing ,turn the key and...


I have a 97 van and same thing is happening. Won't stay running and the next day - starts right up. I just read that the gauge pod/instrument cluster which is basically a module itself needs replaced - it's in the dashboard. After removing the cluster, you will find a couple of pc boards on the back. The pc boards and the solder connections become damaged after years of hot and cold weather. The solder joints will either crack or become loose from the expansion and contraction of hot and cold conditions. You can re-solder all the jointws and carefully reheat each one, or get a used one from a junk yard or auto parts store or dealership. Just take out the old one and plug in the replacement and reinstall the dashboard parts. I have not tried it yet, but I am going to. I have also heard that if you disconnect the battery cables for awhile, which allows the computer to restart, the car will stay running at least for awhile until you can repair it.

Hope this helps.

Saturn SC2 Hot Start Problem


It sounds as if the crank position sensor is bad.When the engine heats up,it cases the sensor not to work.After the sensor cools it will work again.
