I was just thinking about the sudden stall problem ,and no start problem .Have you checked the coil pack. When the car is cold it should start ,when it warms up ,with the under hood temps ,it will probably stall ,again. Try replacing the coil pack .
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord v6 tack jumps sometimes, but sometimes fine.

It is what you call hunting. Carb or throttle body injection?. more than likely TBI. Could be the throttle position sensor,The mass air flow sensor, fuel pressure regulator. have the fuel pressure ck'd first.. then the throttle position sensor. then the maf sensor. Have the maf sensor cleaned, They are very expensive. Make sure the air cleaner is clean, clean. it and the maf work together. - good luck, Ned

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

Crankshaft sensor

Here is a link to a how-to video, but he doesn't show you the first few steps, so, first, set parking brake, disconnect negative battery cable, raise and support vehicle. Remove passenger side wheel and then the inside splash guard in the wheel well. Remove serpentine drive belt, then remove the crank pulley. Watch the video for the rest.

I have a 94 bonneville,and it always stalls after driving for a few also surges while driveing rpms up and down can't figure this problem out. I have a new fuel pump and filter new crankshaft...

Usually, a map sensor and an idle control sensor can cause the rpms to jump. I had a bad map sensor and it did this. It also would die every now and then. Check your fuel pressure and make sure it is correct. It may be a fuel issue. If your check engine light is on, get it scanned at an auto part store. This may be your best bet. If not, I would look into the sensors. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help you.

Replacing bad camshaft position sensor

  1. Disconnect battery ground cable.
  2. Remove water pump pulley attaching bolts, then the serpentine belt and water pump pulley.
  3. Disconnect sensor wiring connector and remove sensor retaining bolt.
  4. Twist and pull sensor to remove.
Reverse procedure to install and prior to installing new sensor, lubricate sensor O-ring.

It is located under the water pump. Make sure when you remove the sensor that you rotate the crank shaft and look in the hole to make sure the pick up magnet is still in there. Sometimes they come loose and cause a no start or long crank. You will need to have the code cleared still.

Car dies for no reason

I have a 1994 Bonneville and it to had trouble with it quiting while driving at low speed or slowing down and after doing a ton or resurch it turned out to be the EGR valve and it is a very common thing for the 3800 3.8. is expensive to replace and all the salvage yards that I went to did not have any on the motor so I had to buy one new $105 but in the end it was worth it. Until I could come up with the money I just took it off and sprayed carb cleaner in it and it would last a few weeks until it started to act up again. hope this helps every one.
