Thanks for using FixYa and welcome to the site. I have a few questions for you. Is it doing it every five minutes? Also, have you checked the fuel pressure? Is gas getting to the injectors on the engine block? I will be waiting on your reply.

Someone will need to check it over when it fails to start. You need to know if it is not getting fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.

P.1391 problem code car starts but run for 10 to 15 min then cuts out then when u try to start it back up it wont start or u have to keep foot on the gas machine is reading code p.1391

Well I have had this problem with these cars before. Every time I had one of these cars do this it always turned out to be the fuel pump. It would start perfect when it was the first time you started it for the day but when it was warm it would quit after awhile of driving it. Also it did seem to do it more if there was a 1/4 tank or less of gas. Also when i would drive them for a bit and shut it off and let it sit for about 15 mins and go out to restart it it would start super hard and run crappy till i got it going down the road. I think there is some seals in the fuel pump the go bad and start taking in a little air causing the car to get vapor locked. I just know when I had this problem I replaced the fuel pump and never had the problem again. Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this. Thanks

I have a 94 volvo 850 can go about 2 miles then it stops getting gas .. if i give it a min it will start again

hello, volvo had the same problem, if you look under your fuse box, you will find your fuel pump rely. fcpgroton has them for a good price. the cam position sensor will also cause this to happen the next time it cuts off tap it a couple of times while some one trys to start your car

The car has ben sitting for several months with little fuel in the tank. it has now been driven for several days putting only the minimum amount of gas neccesary to run. Yesterday it cut off in traffic...

try using a fuel additive in at max strength,could be just moisture in tank...then give it some high speed/max load driving for about 15/20 mins.....

Car shuts off when it gets hot

your ignition coil are going bad, they need to be replaced. once the car gets hot the circuit shut down the car when hot. once they cool your riding again until they get hot. thats your problem. Good Luck

Car starts but turns off after a 10 min or so.

This definitely sounds like a fuel pump/filter issue. Good news if it's the filter, it's only about 10 dollars to buy a new one and about 5 minutes labor, including jacking up your car.

Fuel pumps cant be a pain in the arse at times, others are fairly easy. Best way to determine if it's the fuel pump, run over to Canadian tire and pick up an ohms meter. Test the fuel pump that way.
