Possible throttle position sensor(TPS).Does the idle even out if you bring the RPMs up to say 1000?All engines spend most of their time at idle,that area wears out in a TPS first.By barely increasing the engine speed you can get past that dead spot and drive your car normally.Of course that doesn't fix your situation but it helps you understand why it happens and how to continue to drive your car until you can replace it.Duralast / Throttle Position Sensor Part Number:
TPS140 is only $33 at your local auto parts store.Good Luck!

I have a 1996 Isuzu Hombre. Sometimes it won't start and just turn over. It also dies sometimes while driving or just idleing at stop sign. When this happens there is a clicking and buzzing sound


Sounds to me like a bad battery, however the alternator could be bad as well if it's not charging the battery enough to allow for amperage to crank. Auto Parts Forum

Check for vacuum leaks.

Have someone feather the gas pedal while you listen carefully to the engine. If the leak is bad enough you'll probable hear it.
More than likely, it's either a vacuum hose or the o-rings under the intake manifold.

Hope this helps!

Turns off after driving it for a few miles it will turn on again but once I put it in gear it will turn off again have to let it cool off till I could get it running again...


This could be a couple of different problems. You said it dies after it gets warm. Is this just like when you stop at a stop sign? And you say it starts back up but dies when you put it in gear? If you restart it and leave it in park it won't die??? Just dies if you put it in gear? I think it might be your torque converter clutch solenoid.

CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING


when key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!
