I had a similar problem with a very difficult cold start. The problem turned out to be a corroded connection at the block thermometer that feeds precise data to the ECU. It thru error ECU codes. I removed the connector cleaned the spade part by scraping to bright metal and the plug part with a toothpick rotated in the small recesses. I reset the error codes, and walla it started instantly, just like it was new. (20 yr. old car) Corrosion causes bad behavior. A few months later same kind of problem with the knock sensor. So do that cleaning too.

it's normal to engine to stall because alternator won't keep engine running. the field control of alternator goes with the batt.voltage then no batt.voltage no field control then no charge
look for good connection at alternator . look for current on one of 2 wire alternator ignition key on (is control by a fuse)

Chevy venture draining battery


The alternator is out. The ONLY time your vehicle uses battery power (while the engine is turning) is during start up. After that the alternator runs the car.

With the car running put a volt meter on the alternator. Red lead on the big nut on back side if alt. Black lead on the neg batt cable or a good body ground. Voltage should be around 14.5v DC.
Then still with engine running, red lead to batt postive, black lead to batt neg. Voltage should read the same. 14.5v DC
If not, the alt. Is bad

1994 saturn sl 1.9l 5 speed wont sart now. ran a few times poorly


try checking your alternator, charge the batt and then try starting car if the car starts pull off your batt terminals and if car does stall out then 9 out of 10 the alternator is shot, if it doesn't then get a ac/dc tester then put it to the post on the alternator and if it is not putting out 13.8 or 14.o then you have to try to find a short, a bad wire, or a bad ground and if you cant find one then pull it out and bring it to a aoutozone or a advanced outo and have them bench test it.

Car stalls


I had a 87 ceira and it did the same thing. I called a repair shop and they told mr to change out the crank position cenor and it worked great no more stalling. Or check your air filter hose and see if it has a hole in it.

Engine won't run properly then dies and won't start without charge


Sounds like your alternator is shot. Remove your alternator and take it into Advance Auto Parts store and they can do a test on it. Don't waste any more money on batteries until you get this checked.

Also, don't be fooled by some sellers. A rebuilt alternator is just as good as a new one.
