Listen TFI module is more than likely the problem change it. TFI module controls spark and timing and fuel. Keep one with you in the car. The module is getting hot and not working right.

try pulling the plug out and putting a very small dab of loctite thread locker on it and see if this stops the problem.

SOURCE: I own a 1996 Hyundai Accent carburator 1.3 model.

dont know if you found your problem or not or if this has anything to do with fixing your problem.....I have a 96 accent and it would start up but immediately stall three or four times before finally running. I would be driving down the road or coming to a stop and the car would shut off and would sometimes take multiple tries to start back up. It didn't make any air sounds so it may not be your problem but mine was simply the ignition switch. A relative give me the idea to check it so while driving I shook the ignition key and the car died. I went to auto zone and bought an igntion switch for $19 and change and it totally fixed the problem.

The most popular failure with the Pontiac whether you are a 6 cylinder or 4 cylinder. Is the fuel pump module,this module has a faulty strainer that made the vehicle starve for fuel,or even gave it hesitation and low power,go with a aftermarket fuel pump module and check to see if the upgrade has be completed for the pontiac in question,and when a engine stall of course the oil light comes on its the same as turning the ignition to acc and the engine not running.

  1. Check the ignition switch condition and operation. The electrical contacts in the run position may be worn or damaged. Try restarting the engine with all electrical accessories in the off position. Sometimes turning the key on an off will help in emergency situations, however once the switch has shown signs of failure, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Check for loose, corroded, damaged or shorted wires for the ignition system and repair or replace.
  3. Check for manifold vacuum leaks or vacuum hose leakage and repair or replace parts as necessary.
  4. Measure the fuel pump delivery volume and pressure. Low fuel pump pressure can also be noticed as a lack of power when accelerating. Make sure the fuel pump lines are not restricted. The fuel pump output is not adjustable and requires fuel pump replacement to repair.
  5. Check the engine fuel and ignition management system. Inspect the sensor wiring and electrical connectors. A dirty, loose or damaged sensor or control module wire can simulate a failed component.
  6. Check the exhaust system for internal restrictions.

hello, if you car stalls instanly maybe your ignition system has a loose connection or even has a short somewhere. but if it coughing but still trying to idle normally maybe your carb dirty. one thing, some carbs has a solenoid air switch attached on one of its side. if this solenoid is shorted damaged you'll have the same effect. hope this helps.

Diesel engine keeps stalling

Looking at the brief description of your problem it may be your heater plug timer? when you start the vehicle from cold the glow plugs have to heat up. These are little pencil type plugs that are mounted in the cylinder head they are timed and glow rather like the bar of an electric fire so the hot spots in each cylinder warm and give precise combustion. If the timer/relay gives only a short burst of power your car will start as normal but if the cylinders are still cold/cool when it shuts off the Vapourised Diesel doesn't ignite correctly so rev's drop and if you can't raise them will stall. When you turn off the ignition and back on again the timer/relay kicks in glow plugs glow and bingo your'e off again. I presume after the first stall everything is back to normal? if not how far up the road is it before engine dies? also how long after starting does it stall?
I hope you don't mind the Epic, Oh! if your 306 continues try starting the car and waiting a while listen for a click like a switch or if the interior light is on when it brightens after a few seconds turn off the ignition then back on and start then see how far you go!
Good Luck!

Chevy g20 van wouldnt start/stalling

It sounds like it may be a problem with the PATS (Passive Anti Theft System). Chevy has been having problems with PATS since 1992 til current. Even if your key doesn't have a visible "chip" in it, it is possible that you have the PATS system. The newer PATS systems work by recognizing the exact cut of the key. In some cases extremely worn out keys have been known to stop working correctly with your ignition. In worst case scenarios the ignition cylinder itself, which contains the other chip for PATS, wears out so badly that, one time in ten or more your vehicle doesn't recognize the key and fails to start. The logic is this: If a thief tries to jimmy the ignition, the PATS system shuts down the ignition system for 20 minutes (30 on some vehicles). This is supposed to discourage the thief from trying again, while still letting you start your vehicle. There are procedures for bypassing the PATS system on many vehicles, but it is not for the faint of heart. The wiring work itself isn't bad, but there are catches: 1) you must have the vehicle running while you make the modification in most cases, and not shut it off during the bypass. 2) It's recommended you install a switch in the bypassed wire so you can disable your bypass in case your vehicle needs service. 3) if the vehicle dies during the bypass for some reason, you may have to visit the dealership and get a new ignition cylinder, and a quick reprogram of the PCM or ECU to get it going again. (Pricey)

Engine turning over but no start...

Is it getting spark? remove one spark plug wire and put a spark plug in it, hold the body of the plug against an unpainted metal part of the engine or body with an insulated tool (like a plastic handled screwdriver) and get someone to wind the engine over. You should see spark at the plug. If not, check to see if the igniter module is switching the coil correctly (might want to search on the net for this procedure, too hard to explain here). Probly best to just replace the igniter module anyway with the age of the vehicle.
