From the description, you could have a few different problems. First thing to check would be to make sure that the car is getting spark. The easiest way to check is to pull a spark plug wire from the coil or distributor and hold it close enough for a spark to jump between the post and the wire. wear rubber gloves so you don't get shocked. have someone turn the key while you hold the wire and look for the spark to jump. If you have spark, you may have a fuel issue. When you turn the key forward you should be able to hear a hum by the fuel tank ( rear or middle of the vehicle) someone else will have to turn the key once again. Even if you hear the hum it could still be a fuel issue. The list of problems that it could be is long so start with that and after you determine if the engine is getting spark the list narrows dramatically. If you have an OBD2 engine code scanner that would help also. let me know what the results are and I can advise further.

Engine cut off while driving down the highway why?


Fuel pump may be failing. Check fuel pressure at injector rail. If pressure is good and stays good, suspect fuel pump relay may be getting weak.

You have a failure in the transmission or the shift solenoids or wiring to them or the TCM. I would get the Transmission Control Module (TCM) tested for fault codes first. Did you have a check engine light come on?

I have problems with my 98 chevy k1500 pickup on the highway. Once i hit about 65 mph it wont accelerate and it backfires. also, after i come to a stop and try to accelerate up to highway speeds again,...


If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

Cuts off, but will restart, then cuts off again


Likely, you have a damaged engine bearing. When there is a problem there it will turn oil pressure light on because bearings keep the pressure inside the crankshaft...It may stop as the bearing overheats and binds, then loosens up a bit allowing a re-start when it gets cooler. Battery sounding dead is likely because the engine is locking up and too difficult for starter to turn.
At this point, it is not a do-it -yourself project ...either you need a lower end rebuild or engine replacement.

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low


Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
