Question about Cars & Trucks

Why is the power shutting off on my truck while driving? Ive checked all the cables and thy seem good to go. sometimes it only does it for a second but this time on the freeway it died for a while and the power didn't come back on until I popped the hood, also after it does this my truck hesitates to run on take off or ecelerating like it does when a truck is over heated, but the water is full and engine oil as well.

I had a car that did that and my mechanic worked several times to find the problem. He replaced my ground cable on the battery everything worked after that as there a spot in my old cable that was defective. He replaced all the cables just to be sure.

If it overheats, you would most likely hear the engine rattling first(lifter noise). Or the coolant steaming out. But I wouldn't rule it out entirely, You could have a bad temp sensor or T stat. Or both. Don't just look at the coolant reservoir and think the coolant is proper. The hose can be kinked or clogged or leaking. Check the radiator when it is cooled down. You should see coolant close to the top. Intermittent codes don't pop the engine light. Have the codes read..They'll be in the history code section. Also year, make, and model would be nice, because newer cars are way different from the old ones.

Hi can any1 help me with my nissan sentra problem?my car just shut off while driving and lost power be for it shut completely off tried to crank it back up but it didn't start sprayed some starter


Crank shaft sensors often fail without triggering a code. But in its early stages, a check engine light may be on. Symtoms of a bad crank sensor are: poor acceleration ( lack of power ) rough idle, ETC. sometimes you may be able to start it normally, and other times it takes 3 or more times. If the check engine light is on take it to a auto parts store and thy can read the code for free. To tell if that's the problem. God-Bless!

My escape keeps misfiring on cylinder 6 and has another multiple misfire, i have to change the spark plugs seems like every other month and ive replaced the boots and it still misfires anyone have thi


The flashing light means the problem is serious and you should not drive the truck. This probably happens when you are accelerating.
Since each cylinder has a coil, it could be moisture in the main wiring harness or a connection.
Could also involve the fuel injectors. You could have water in the gas for example.
The code means that cylinder is not producing power, not a lack of spark.

The only experience I have had like this was a 94 sunbird. It idled bad sometimes it would die out at stop signs but once you go up to speed it seemed to run fine. I changed plug wires and problem went away. If check engine light is on check the code. I never had a check engine light.

Usually a problem with a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake thru the valve.
