New fuel pump, filter,coil, plugs, tune up etc. Drive 1/2 mile and it dies and will not start for a couple of hours. THen starts right up, and can drive another 1/2 mile, then dies and wont start. What can it be? Please help, over $3000 invested, and cannot figure out why it dies and will not start until it sits for awhile. Its not vapor lock as it never warms up, and then dies. Thankyou for your help!

Try replacing the crank shaft sensor.I paid 44.00 dollars for one a while back took care of the problem you are having. Be careful not to disconnect the vacuum lines which I did .

First I would say less than a $1000 would have repaired your original issues,assuming there were several. How was it running and did the current problem start after all the work was done? Also, what you invested in money and parts ,I hope went to fix different issues.

What makes 2001 Pontiac Montana stall and die while driving, speed doesn't matter?


Amazing.....At this very moment in time.....my 2000 silhouette is doing the same thing....if you were unaware.....ventures Montana's and silhouette are from the same mold. Very similar in all aspects. My diagnostics have got to the fuel pump part of suspects....but I have already checked filter, relays, fuses and ignition electronics....my latest suspect is the pressure sensor that monitors the pressure of the gas tank....there is also a pressure sensor on the injector rail I'm suspicious of. I'm going to find out how to place each sensor in "okay ....fuel pump turn on and pump fuel to the throttle body" to check them. In my case....I don't smell any gas after turning the engine over....trying to start it.....sometimes for over an hour....never any gas smell....so I suspect fuel delivery is the problem. The fuel pump has several sensors that control whether or not it needs to run....and pump gas. I can hear my fuel pump run for 2 or3 seconds when I turn the ignition to the on or start positions.testing all of those sensors is my plan of action for this 3 day weekend. Your on track with your work and suspicion of the position sensors......vacuum leaks will follow the sensor checks. Vacuum leaks could cause a couple of sensors to fail too.....I dropped my fuel tank last weekend....and found the fuel pump to be in working condition.....I removed my fuel filter and punched a hole through it for free flow.....to eliminate it from the list...after checking the vacuum angle....I will move to the electronics side.....with the ignition switch first and the transmission position indicator switch following.....I've plugged my trouble code reader in and didn't get any indication of any failed electronic devices......my problem and your problem seem to be very similar, except that I am doing all of my work on the van myself. I will try to keep you informed of my diagnostics through fix it.it would be nice to know how yours is advancing too.....there are a few directions you can progress into.....hope one solves your problem....if not.....there will be more ideas to come....until I solve my problem....good luck to. Us both and onward we go......Nick.ps couldn't spell or grammar check because I'm using my phone to compose....and the typing pad covers the entirescript being typed. Sorry for any problems.

1985 toyota 4runner running too lean


Maybe it's not running lean. Maybe it's misfiring. Since you put in new fuel parts and that didn't help, maybe there is an ignition component that fails when it gets hot. A bad coil can do this, also the igniter-rarely, admittedly, but you could have it tested. When it stalls and won't start, if you check for spark and find none, it would confirm an ignition problem.
I hope you find it. Post back and let us know.

Chevy silverado 1500 z71 4wd. Sputters when starting and dies when pressing on the gas, wont start up sometimes.


How many miles do you have on it? Might be time for a tune-up (new plugs, plug wires, etc.) Start with the simple things first - have you changed your fuel filter? Could also be bad gas - couple of bottles of Heet (alcohol) will help with this. Then move on to more things like a Vacuum leak, fuel pump.

Now you can do the Fuel Pump

They seize up mechanically and fail
Electrically

Did you drive with a fuel pressure gauge,
taped to the windshield

Got a good fuel filter

Looking won't help you

Always do some type of testing,
before replacing anything
