SOURCE: Car starts then stalls once the engine warms up.

You need new timing belt and gears. Buicks gears are made of plastic, and become a big glob. Nothing for the timing belt to grab onto.

97 Nissan 200sx 2.0l....car wont stay running when put in gear. When idling sometimes when engine is reved up it stalls, other times while idling I can rev it up and its smooth but once I put it in gear it...


You'll need to change the distributor, as the distributor shaft oil seal has gone bad. Without sufficient spark, you'll have no power. Don't forget a new cap/rotor.

1998 1.4 PUMA RUNS FINE AND IDLES FINE REVS PROPERLY BUT THEN WONT IDLE ?


ngine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My 2003 Chrysler 300M 3.5L is seriously missing out. Thought it was bad gas(water). Won't rev up above 4000rpm while idling in Park. Intermittently, won't rev up above 2500rpm while driving. ...


Go to Autozone, Advance, etc.. any good parts store and OBII scan done (fault scan) they do this FREE. Scan will tell you what sensor(s) to go after to fix. Once you repair or replace sensor have parts store reset your light.
