SOURCE: Intermittent display on cluster panel

It doesn't sound like a bad cluster as much as it sounds like a loose or bad connection in the wiring harness somewhere. What I would do is locate the harness under the dash that feeds the instrument panel and move it around while the panel is not working and watch for it to begin working again. Or, if it is working at the time, watch for it to go out again. As you get closer to the bad connection, you will have to move the harness less to get the same effect, but you will need to try moving it from one end to the other. If that doesn't help locate it, you will need to start checking the connections. Most likely it is either in the connection that connects the harness to the instrument panel or in a connector that connects the primary under-dash harness to the instrument panel harness. If you have trouble locating it, you can look up the information at . You will need to purchase a subscription for your vehicle for $26.95 USD, but it will tell you the harness locations, connector locations, wiring diagrams, repair procedures, etc. Everything you need to know about your vehicle. (You are in Australia? I have always wanted to move there! I am in the United States.) Good luck.

SOURCE: vehicle shuts off sometimes when stopping

Set your idle speed to mfg recomindation if that doesnt help check the dash pot that is what keeps the engine from stalling at sudden speed reduction

What ould make a 2004 dodge intrepid shut down while driving down the road and it starts back up right away after I get pulled over and put it in park and start it again

Dodge and Chrysler products have a history of intermittently faulty crankshaft sensors after a period of time. This will cause your issue. It may also not even set a Check Engine code since it comes and then goes away immediately. If you check for engine codes and don't find any, and if this problem persists or becomes more frequent, the crank sensor is a good candidate for replacement. Also, as they act up more and more, you might find that it takes longer for you to be able to start back up and move again - this is another characteristic of the problem. They are usually easy to access and not extremely expensive.

95 lincoln cont. occassional crank fast ,but no start ,intermittent ,later will instantly start as should

I think what you have going on here is a failing electric fuel pump, this is what they do when they are worn out, it is a rotary pump and the rotor sticks due to worn bearings. To confirm this get a can of spray starting fluid from any auto parts store, next time it won't start spray it into the air intake hose to the engine, if it fires right up you have a bad pump. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, remember to also replace the fuel filter when the pump is replaced. Also check the connector to the fuel pump cutoff safety switch for signs of melting, replace the switch and connector as needed, this is caused by a defective fuel pump drawing excessive current.

Car firing but will not start plugs sooty

You could try the Clear Flood procedure....Throttle wide open and crank engine . This sometimes works, but.....

These engines suffer from fuel wash down. The gasoline washes away the oil in the cylinders.....and compression goes away, not making the fuel fire off.

The film of oil in the cylinders and rings seals the piston to the bore making for good compression.

Remove the spark plugs....crank over the motor to eject raw fuel...dribble a couple of spoonfuls of motor oil down each plug hole and crank briefly.

Install plugs and try restart.

93 intrepid just shuts down, sometimes it starts right up and sometimes it does not, fuel in fuel rail

I had what seems like the same problem. After taking it to a couple of shops and paying hundreds of dollars for it not being fixed, I found that a sensor was losing contact intermittently due to a short in the wiring harness connecter. I forget what the sensor is, but it is located on the passenger side back by the fire wall, near the exhaust manifold.
Try having the engine running and wiggle that wiring harness to see if the engine cuts off. Hope this helps,

While driving engine just shuts off

go down and have your alternator checked, it might be weak, causing a surge in power to the ecu, shutting the engine down, if was the battery the car wouldnt fire right back up, another thing might be the fuel filter/pump, these should be the first things to check.
