Crank sensor fail this can happen some times with no codes. if the crank sensor dont get a reading the engine cuts out but when you turn the key after the stall it will read ok again and start.

This could be due to random transient ECM failure. Apparently the incident and recovery occurs too quickly for a code to be stored.

SOURCE: check engine light is flashing while driving. It

The check engine lamp will flash when the computer/emission system sees a problem that could possibly damage the catalytic converter or other components. Often the cause is a cylinder or cylinders that are misfiring which will make the engine run rough. Because the light has been flashing you should have the problem checked out and repaired to avoid any possible damage. Good luck, hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2000 cougar will not start

most of the time if the check engine light will not come on it is a fuse or bad engine controller.if not i would check the fuel pump supply.

SOURCE: I have a 1995 Grand Marquis and my check engine

Most likely culprit is the ETC (electronic throttle control). Different companies call it TPS (throttle position sensor) i.e. but what's happening is when the car is cold, the initial throttle setting is high until it warms up and kicks down to a secondary throttle position. Since these things are monitored electronically, there's nothing you can manually set. The part itself ( i think its TPS in your car) is usually a black component with an outer white layer located under the air filter. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

SOURCE: 99 Mercury Cougar won't start. I turned key to start, has current to relay. Jumped relay, will turn over. Spark to plugs but no fuel to injectors. Fuel pressure in fuel rail. No check engine

Have you checked the automatic shut down relay ?
It powers the injectors from a 20amp fuse number 5.

Service engine soon mean

the engine light is indicating a fault that will affect the engine has happened . Check the oil level and coolant level at the radiator cap. What you have done is not fixing the problem and will cause other problems. The first thing to do when the engine light comes on is to have the fault codes read and fix the sensor/servo that is causing the problem

Engine stalls but starts right back up

How long since a tune-up? To check for some codes, use a jumper wire between A and B terminals at datalink connector. Then, turn key just till dash lights come on. The mil starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes, your looking for two digit numbers. This is 12 pin data link connector obd1.

2001 Peugeot 206 1.1 Stalling after revving

As the engine light came on there should be a fault code stored in the memory that should provide a clue.

When searching for whistles and other noises listening through a piece of hose can be a helpful way to pinpointing the source.

Check engine light came on, within minutes it "powered down" stalled, dies and will not start. What could cause this to happen? Did the turn key off/on to get code and "done" appeared.

When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Engine dies for no apparent reason after several hours running

Sonds like a sensor putting out an error code to shut it down ( like a fatal error code) Prolonged vibrations and heat can make cam sensors, maf, o2 senosr do craz ythings which will actuate a govener and stall your car...could also be you fuel pump causually telling you that "hey im bout to die".I dealership can run a stress test (if you will) to check the longivity of the pump...
Good luck hope this helps :)

Car losing power and turning off

if your car is 2003+ try turning the key to run (but not crank) then to acc. 3 times and the engine codes will show up on the odometer, then you can look up what those codes are to help diagnose some of the problems.
