SOURCE: engine shuts off while driving

I would suspect a faulty EGR valve, but is the check engine light on? If it is, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. That will narrow the search for the problem. Sure hope this helped.

Why do I suddenly have no injector pulse?


Is the vehicle equipped with a security system that may be tripped? If so, the injectors will shut down. The injectors are grounded by the PCM . You may have an internal Issue with it. Is the spark also shutting down when the injectors aren't working? If so, this could be a crank shaft sensor failure. Is there any diagnostic engine codes that can be retreived to possibly isolate the problem?

Could the throttle position sensor cause a 91 accord to shut down


A faulty throttle position sensor can cause all kinds of drivability problems on all kinds of different vehicles. However, if I was driving a 1991 Honda Accord and the engine suddenly shut down like somebody turned the key off, the first thig I would do is check for spark at the spark plugs. If there was no spark, I would replace the distributor, since this is what causes this about 90% of the time on those vehicles.

My 2005 Silverado 4.3 starts and runs good. The check engine light stays on. It will continue to run good as long as I do not shut it off. When I shut it off for a few minutes and then restart it it...


If no evidence of anything wrong with the codes your being told to check. It might be your ECM is bad, I had a friend had similar problems and they put a new ECM in it and it ran great again.

1993 chevy silverado runs great but stalls at redlights or stopping generally. just had vaccum leak fixed, new fuel filter and full tune up, but still same problem


Try this solution, it fixes 90% of this type of problem.

To correct this problem I want you to get a can of intake cleaner (ABOUT $5.00) from any local auto parts store like NAPA or Carquest, do not use carburetor spray, intake cleaner only or u will damage the Teflon coating inside the throttle valve and air bypass valve, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. I was driving it and suddenly it died. It seemed as if it ran out of fuel but it was just filled a day before. The truck was running fine before this happened so...


Does the engine turn over normal, dragging, or a fast spin? You could have a bad crank shaft position sensor. If this goes out, the sensor can't reference where the crank is which will cause the engine to shut down. The fuel pump could have went out. Check the fuel rails for a valve that looks like the one on the wheels. It may be covered with a cap. De-press the valve needle and see if you have fuel in the rails, If not the pump isn't working.

It just suddenly came on, and it won't go over 5 miles per hour.There is engineoil and coolant. there was no warnings


It's not good news when there's engine oil and coolant in the same sentence. Don't drive it anymore and have it looked at by a trusted mechanic. Good Luck.
