Sounds like possible crank sensor failure,will work till warms up they have to cool,then will work again.Also monitor fuel preasure,fuel pumps can act this way too.

1999 VW starts then dies


the idler is blocked in the intake, or the idle controller has failed, if you take the air pipe off the intake there is a butterfly and on the side you will see a hole, on the side you will see a device, now some time you can just spray some carb cleaner in there and give it a good flush out. also spray the butterfly and clean this up. open with the cable and do the same. you may fined that the air filter needs replacing so would do this at the same time. leave for 10 min and then start engine don't worry about it coffing etc its just the cleaner being burnt off in the engine give it a few good revs. then let it idle for 5 min, when you have done that then fit the pipes back on. run engine it should be fine now, if not repeat.

My 1994 Jeep grand cherokee starts n idles but then dies.


Engine stall or RPM fluctuates at idle.

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 2001 ford taurus does not start, it acts like it is running out of gas.


Turn on key and have someone listen by back of car for fuel pump running it will only run for 5 or 10 sec with each turn of the key. Not running check fuel pump fuse and fuel pump relay. Take another relay out from another spot and swap them to see if it works

Glitch in theft system wont let me start car


If you have added a pcm you have to turn the key to the on position try to start the car and then keep the key on the on position the theft light should blink for around ten min. when it stops blinking turn the key off for 5 sec then restart the car. It may take up to 3 trys. This is basically the passcode reader for the pcm.
