Make sure the rubber boot on the mass airflow sensor/intake is seated properly and clamped down tighly. Sometimes when it is loose the torque reaction from the engine will cause the boot to pull away and it sucks air which will cause it to fall flat on its face and buck and surge.

SOURCE: 1986 Alfa 90. 2.5V6. Engine cuts out while driving.

Possible worn spark plugs causing unduly high Voltage which cuts ECU to protect it from arcing feedback. This problem generally produced during acceleration. Car usually re-starts almost immediately. Replace plugs - clean leads should be a fix if these are the symtoms

SOURCE: My Alfa 166 3.0 loses

Hello,

There is a belt that rolls the alternator and AC compressor belt. This belt sometime get's worn out. This belt makes the alternator not to charge fully if it gets worn out or slacks. When the car engine starts, the belt rotates very fast. And the faster it rotates, the higher the alternator give full charge to the battery and full current to other parts of the car.

So I believe this belt has kind of worn out or slack, there by not making the alternator fully run and the battery will not charge when this happens.

This has happened to me before, this is why I am suspecting this belt. I have forgotten the name of the belt, but I know it make the alternator and Ac compressor run at the same time when you start the engine.

Check this out, as it probably might be the cause of the problem.

I hope this helps.

Good luck.

SOURCE: I have 1986 Alfa Spider that won't start. Car has been sitting for a year. I replaced battery, fuel tank, fuel sender unit, both fuel pumps. I seems that the in tank pumps is not getting any po

Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

you need to check the alternator charge rate as this is the sort of problems associated with a low charge rate , unfourtunately you will need the engine running to do this so get a voltmeter ready for when you jump start the engine and read across battery terminals if reads below 13 volts the alternator needs replacing ,check that the drive belt is tensioned correctly as this would make alternator give low charge,also will need the OBD codes reading after all this going on , the engine doesnt need to be running for this just ignition on ,will give codes for sensor/switch which might be out because of the starting/running problems

drive belt tension
have the voltage regulator checked /replaced
if it is faulty the battery will drain as it is running all of the electronics without help from a alternator
AS the ecm draws a lot of current, a battery not charging will not last long
most modern cars run about 85% of the alternator with the rest for charging the battery
if the voltage regulator is part of the ECM, replace the ecm unit

My 2005 durango want cran over


What happens when you attempt to start the engine? If nothing happens when you turn the key,you need to check the battery to determine its state of charge. Many starters won't do a thing unless there is at least 10 volts available from the battery. A low battery does not necessarily mean the battery is the problem, though. The battery may have been run down by prolonged cranking while trying to start the engine. Or, the battery's low state of charge may be the result of a charging system problem. Either way, the battery needs to be recharged and tested. If the battery is low, the next logical step might be to try starting the engine with another battery or a charger. If the engine cranks normally and roars to life, you can assume the problem was a dead battery, or a charging problem that allowed the battery to run down. If the battery accepts a charge and tests okay, checking the output of the charging system should help you identify any problems there.

It sounds like your battery is not charging. You may have a good battery and a good alternator but what you need to look for is the alternator fuse . It is usually a square block style fuse , 50 to 80 amps, normally in a fuse box under the dash. If it blows the car will drive till it runs out of battery juice and go bonkers just like you describe right before it dies. The charge light on the dash usually will not warn you of the problem. I think the manufacturers just want to charge you big dollars just to replace a fuse most people are not familiar with.

Battery light came on,no power steering.Tried to drive home,ABS light came on,wipers were slow also.Pulled in,car wouldn't start again.


It is most likely your alternator. Your alternator failed and then your battery lost its charge. Have the battery charged and tested before you replace anything just to double check. Either way, the battery needs to be charged seperately. Don't try to charge it with your new alternator or jumper cables as this could burn up your new alternator.

It sounds like the Alternator is actually bad.
One great way to determine this:
Recharge the new battery with a trickle charge overnight. Make sure use remove the wires going to the Battery before recharging.
Replace the Battery Wires.
Get the Vehicle Started.
When it has Started: Leave it Running and Disconnect and Remove the Negative side of the Battery. If the Vehicle dies, it is the Alternator that is bad, and needs to be replaced..
The Battery starts that vehicle, and provides nominal power to certain accessories. The Alternator actual Runs the Engine and Recharges the Battery with a low trickled charge.

New alternator didn't charge battery. (2VDC


As the car re-started, the battery is not flat.
The voltages measured indicate a problem with either the power or ground connection in the circuit between the alternator and the battery.

You likely have a intermittent / poor ground connection somewhere in the power system.
Check battery terminals are clean and firmly attached.
Check battery cable and alternator ground connections are intact and in good order.

You can try this.You can buy inexpensive system testers that have Yellow Red Green lights that will give you a better idea of your charging system.Strauss Stores,Auto Barn,Pep Boys have them.Some plug into gig lighter,some have clips to go on battery/connections.You have to get the motor started to use,so jump or charge the battery.I'm thinking loose connection,bad ground.Good Luck.
