You should check to see if it has spark , pull a plug wire an hold near ground while having someone cranking over the engine . If there is spark spray some carburetor cleaner into the engine an see if it tries to start then ! You could have fuel pump or ignition module problem ! Let me know what you find an I'll walk you through this ! How was it running before it stop ! Any troubles starting , long crank time or did it fire right up ! No check engine light ?

When the last time you got a tune up? Might be a clog fuel injectors.

SOURCE: 99 chevy silverado running rough and stalling.

the problem you are discribing would lead me to belive your fuel filter is clogged which is a simple fix 3 dollar part at any part store or on the worse hand your fuel pump itself could be weak you can open the gas tank cover and have another person turn the truck key to the on position without going far enough to start you will hear a faint whining noise if it is going bad or a louder noise if it is fine Good Luck

Sounds like there is a issue with the coil then if there is no sparking. The main thing that goes wrong is the crankshaft position sensor it allows the coils to work properly I would replace the crank sensor I bet that will do the trick!

Have you ran an Oil pressure test? low oil pressure (20lb)or no oil pressure(0lb)and the lifters will not open the valves enough to let fuel in to the cylinder to start your engine!

It is most likely Carbureter Iceing. Most likely the "heat riser" has been disconnected from either end (where it attaches to the Air Cleaner, or where it connects to the Exhaust Manifold.

Engine acted like it was going to stall, then tachometer(rpm) and speedometer jumped up high, gas gauge dropped to empty level though there was half tank of gas acted like it wasn't getting gas pumped gas...


Ignition or fuel problem probably . When you turn the key to start does the engine spin ? Crank no start or nothing happens NO CRANK - NO START ?
If the engine spins an does not start an run you need to test to see what's missing Spark or fuel . Pull a spark plug wire off a spark plug an stick a screw driver in the end an hold it near ground (metal) and have someone try to start the vehicle ! Is there spark ? Spray starting fluid into the engine , does it start then ?

My # 30 fuse keeps blowing... 99 Mercury Cougar


If it is a 7.5 amp fuse, it powers the charge warning light in the cluster and applies voltage to the alternator to make it charge.
You will need someone to trace that circuit and look for a short to ground. It may be in the cluster or in the harness.
Something else besides the fuse is making the car not start.

Try checking you belt tension. That happened to me once while I was driving. Turned out to be a broken fan belt.

My 99 mercury cougar v6 is stuttter when i drive it will shut off while driving and the car acts like there is no gas in it pass a 1/4 of a tank what is this?


I had the same problem, but the problem didn't start until winter when it got below 0 degrees celcius. it would almost bronco jump and stall at stop lights, (almost rear ended a few people...not safe at all) and then when i'd start it up, i'd rev it and it would stall...but still starting again everytime.. it turned out that.this car is really good and developing condensation in the fuel line/tank...I went and bought a 2 dollar bottle of gas-line antifreeze (any gas station) put it in with the gas and filled 'er up with a tank of premium (cause it burns hotter) and the problem was solved almost instantly. (after about 20 minutes of driving) it saved me from having to get my entire pump replaced...try that out..if it is only since winter started(i dunno where u are) it could very well be your problem.
