Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

2000 Windstar cuts out while driving

While driving, it sputters and feels as if it is going to die out. It has not died while driving on freeway, but has died if stopped semi suddenly.
We have replaced the coil as well as the mass air flow and ignition control.
Still sputtering and feeling as if it is not getting what it needs. Is intermittant, but cannot go for more than 5-7 minutes without it occurring. Does NOT do this at an idle.
It has been suggested that it could be throttle plates. What is a throttle plate and where is it located? Could this be the issue?

Replace the lowest cost part first.....fuel filter. If this does not solve the problem then its more than likely your fuel pump.

Why does my 2000 Yukon cut out while I"m driving?


I guess you mean engine dies? You need to determine if the issue is fuel or spark. If spark, it will die flat, fuel often will sputter as it dies. If you can hook up fuel pressure gauge so that you can see it while driving this might help. If you think it is spark issue, check coil and ignition module, crank/cam sensor. Is this random or is there some pattern, such as amount of time driven?

Have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe. Started sputtering at freeway speeds - 60-80mph. Died twice in town. Changed fuel filter, air filter, tested fuel pump the best I could. Went away for a while then. Ame back today...


Could be low fuel pressure or several other things.
If the check engine light is on you should get it checked out, most any auto parts store can scan the computer for free in hopes of selling you some parts.
If the warning light is not on, I would look at the fuel system again.

Sputters then dies


Most likely a lack of fuel, check the fuel filter first.

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving


Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
