Fuel pump or ignition system problems could case this. Normally if it is a safety device the car will not even turn over. My sister in law just experienced this problem. I put a new distributor in and it fired right up. Make sure you use a volt meter and properly test your ignition system before purchasing any parts. A good repair manual will tell you how to test the fuel pump and ignition system.

Most likely the fuel pump is defective, replace it.

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

Why my car turns off while driving?


When it doesn't start does it not turn over or does it not fire? When you are driving does it sputter and quit or just suddenly stop running? Does it make a difference what speed you are going? Does it happen after a certain period of time? Does it quit when going over bumps? When it quits will it start right away, or wait a little bit or get it towed home because you don't know when it's going to start again? Do you still have a carburator or throttle body? These questions would help to narrow down what could be causing your problem.

1995 lincoln t c won't start in the morning when temp is below 55, but will start once the temp warms up into the upper 60's.


this could be a poor battery,that the cold temperatures affect its ability to function at colder temperatures.you don`t say if it doesn`t start (fire up) or it doesn`t start(turn over)either way have the battery load tested or if its over say 7 years replace.
