My car turned off as soon as I put on gear, that's true, you have to check vacuum lines but a big reason is the idle air control valve ac delco #217437 and actually runs pretty good, try on that.

Why does my car shut down while driving?


There might be a problem with the alternator, specifically the diode trio that is inside the alternator. Have your charging system checked. You can do it yourself if you have a voltmeter. Start car and check voltage across the battery terminals. You should get 14.5 volts or higher.

I have problem with my 1999 lincoln town car i exit the highway normally when i stop at the light the just shut down i then try to turn the normally and the car started with no problem when i then put it...


There is a problem with the car running on idle.

The idle control solenoid has gone bad and needs replacement.

Ask an expert at the garage because I will not advice you to do it yourself.

If the clutch assembly of the car is damaged or has wearied out. It may cause problem to put the gears. The best solution is to replace the clutch assembly.

91 camry starts and shuts off when put in drive or reverse


I was an ASE master auto tech for 13yrs and have seen this problem before. It sounds like the idle air control valve on the intake manifold has stopped working and the idle speed is not being controlled(letting the engine idle too slow which causes a stall when put under a load such as putting it in gear). Try giving it a little throttle while putting it in gear if that works let off the throttle if it dies you will know the Idle Air controll is not working.

Cranks but won't start


Jus the motor shut off? Or did all the gagues, lights, everything seem to shut down? If all the gagues acted up, sounds like the ignition switch, not the lock cylinder, the acutal ignition switch.

Transmission locked up, felt like it was stuck in second or third gear. not shifting. shut engine off and restarted , shifting properly now. what causes this.


It was a temporary fault that put the car into limp mode (a safeguard operating condition designed to protect the transmission in case of serious failure). Sometimes a transient fault can occur, and the car goes into limp mode just to be sure it's not for real. Shutting off and restarting the car is the usual way to clear the fault and return the car to normal operation - if the problem was real, the car would've stayed in limp mode after restart, or gone into limp once you started driving again. I wouldn't sweat this one, since it went right back to normal operation.
