1998 pontiac sunfire manual. Car starts but sputters and then dies and is completly dead but in the morning will start again and then die. I changed the coil pack but still the same. what can it be?


You can't do any testing, until you have a battery
that will take and hold a charge

Then you move on to testing the Alternator,then
Fuel Pressure & continue on with other testing

MY '98 EXPLORER WITHA 4.0E ENGINE DOESN'T IDLE RIGHT HAVE CHANGED MOST OF THE INTAKE SYSTEM OR CLEANED IT BUT WON'T IDLE RIGHT AND DIES OFTEN AT LOW RPMS LIKE AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS. IS THIS THE COMPUTER? OR...


idle air control valve sensor and a tune up would probably help the fuel milage plus a new 02 sensor. catalystic converter may be getting restrictive as well. new fluids may help for milage as well.

Ford explorer v6 going doiwn road will die some times it crank right back some times it won't codes show 18


Code 18 is: Battery voltage low. Check for bad wiring, faulty battery, or defective alternator. There are other things that could be causing this situation but start here and then go forward. let me know.

Engine on 1994 Ford Explorer dies when car has been reversed (at the point in which I go to put it into drive). Engine will not start for another 10-15 minutes. Please help. Thanks.


if your truck has mutliport check the harmonic balancer to see if the rubber that helps keep the vibration down is ok if you have a distribitor change it the pickup coil might be bad

Dies at Idle and decelration - won't start for 15


Hello. I bet your problem is one of these two things. 1: your timing is out. Making it run at such a low idle that it stalls itself out. 2: your truck is running too rich and flooding itself out. Just adjust theb timing a bit and lean the motor out a bit and you should be as good as new! Hope this helps!
