97 ford ranger 4cyl starts and immediately dies. Has some fuel pressure, but haven't put a pressure gauge on it


If it dies immediately when you remove the starting fluid the issue has to be with fuel delivery.

What would cause my car 2 die immediately after i start it


I had a similar problem with a 2000 Sunfire. The temp guage was not reading and the t/c light was on. There were no codes displayed. After some research I checked the resistance of the coolant temperature sensor and it was much to high. 100,000 ohms and should have been 2000-3000 ohms when cold. A new sensor solved the problem. There are other things which could cause your problem but this solution worked for me. Replacing the sensor is easy depending on it's location in your car. You might have to drain some coolant. Be careful and take precautions. Do it when the engine is cold.

1997 Honda del sol starts but dies immediately


You are not getting enough gasoline to the engine. Causes include: fuel filter clogged (When did you change the fuel filter last?) THat is the chief cause, but it could also be water in the gas especially in the winter as it freezes in the fuel lines.

2003 Ford Taurus will periodically die while driving ! All warning lights will come on and engine will die. It will start again immediately after I put it in 'Park' and I can resume driving


This sounds like a bad connection, the problem is where, i have seen the wiring harness that goes over the transmission rub into wiring and cause engine to shut down and then restart again and run until the right movement is made to shut down again.

Try starting the car and do the wiggle test, start grabing wiring and moving around and see if engine dies out.

Engine dies while still driving. May start up immediately, may start in 5 mintes, 30 minutes, or longer.


does ur car heat up? if not please check your ground coz it may be rusted. What I suppose it is: your fuel pump. they die slow. Immediately it dies, hit the gas tank with a 2x4 and if your ground is good, it may start or you'll hear the pump turn on immediately you put it on ign.
