SOURCE: engine cuts out

Maybe when you went into the ditch you partially pinched your fuel line so now your not getting enough fuel to the motor?Crawl up under your car and see if you can see any damage to the fuel lines, or anything else...filter etc.

SOURCE: Engine cuts out at a prolong idle speed.

Hi all, I had much the same problem, engine bouncing around when idling as if it were firing on a few cylinders and even cutting out completly sometimes. I found out it was the breather hose at the rear right hand side of the engine that runs to the front. there is an elbow piece at the back, this could have developed a leak or in my case it was further back behind the engine, hope this has been of use guys. one thing I would like to point out, beware of the cooling system plastice hose conectors, the outer may look fine but some of mine just brake off and crumble in your fingers, it's as if the inner plastic is destroyed by the hot collant over a period of time, i'm in the process of replacing most of mine.

Possible faulty Idle valve.

Also check for air leak/vac hose adrift or split

Good Luck

SOURCE: engine cutting out when idling or slowing down

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, 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
