My 2001 bmw ci run, and then just shut off, after a few minute it will run again, and shut off while driving it. Please Help


You need to determine if it losing electrics or fuel. Does it sputter as it dies, or just dead off? Dead off usually means spark circuit has been interrupted. Think of things such as bad coil, crank sensor, ignition module. These items have electrical coils inside, which can develop a crack in a wire which heats as running and fails, then cools and will run again. If it seems fuel related, first check for bad gas cap vent, then use fuel pressure gauge situated so that you can see it while driving and see if pressure drops just before car dies. This could mean bad fuel pump, dirty filter, bad relay.

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

1992 cavalier. starts and drives fine, but will die after it's been driven if i try to put it in gear again. What's the problem? bought it site unseen, drove it home about 7 miles and it started sputtering...


Try pulling the vacuum line off of the EGR valve when the engine is warm and starts to sputter. If it runs good cold and then dies when warm and won't start again until the engine cools it is most likely a bad or sticking EGR valve. Try the procedure to confirm it is the EGR. You can check the internet for location and an image of the EGR valve for your specific car. Please rate me on this answer.

1993 dodge caravan 3.3 v6 on days when outside temps are higher than 70 degrees after driving for a while if rpm's get below say 1200 car will stall out and after 20 mins. it will restart but will stall...


What does it do, if you try to accelerate when this starts to happen? If it dies,sputters or is sluggish, I'd start by changing fuel filter, and if that doesn't help, have fuel pressure tested when (if at all possible) this begins to happen. Had similar problem, winter was fine, hot weather it would die, and restart after 20 minutes or so, then go a fair distance again, then same thing. Fuel pump was on it's way out and when it got hot, fuel pressure would drop. First thing in the morning when fuel in tank and pump was cool, ran like a charm, but on way home from work, after sitting on a hot day, fuel got warm/hot, and pump heated up and that's when it started. Carried a fuel pressure gauge with me. Fuel pressure when cool, was 49 psi, and when it got hot, eventually dropped off to 2 psi. Sat for 20 minutes, jumped back up to 49psi, took off for home,then would eventually get lower and die again. Changed pump and filter, all was well. Try filter first, you have nothing to lose, and it should be changed if pump replaced later anyway.
