It is possible that it is your timing belt

The fuel pump gets mechanically bound,due to age and wear,and quits,now and then.
Check fuel pressure with a gauge on fuel rail. Ride around with gauge taped to windshield,and watch pressure,when it shuts off.

Need a Gas Filter with less than 30,000 miles on it.

With these new cars, with the multiport fuel injection systems. The line pressure is over 33psi. You have to test the line pressure to make sure it isn't the fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.
You will need to verify that the car is getting good spark to the plugs and fuel to the cylinders. If there are any other symptoms let me know.

Car ran fine driving down the road lost and died wohld not restart but cranked until battery went dead jump start still crank no start where should i look first


Check your fuel filter. If it has not been changed for awhile, it may be plugged. The car would then be starved for fuel and quit. After sitting for awhile, enough fuel may get through, but after running a short time it will die again for lack of fuel.
Another thing to check is your ability to get spark to the spark plugs. You coil(s) may have died and need to be replaced.
You could also have a crack in your distributor cap if you have one and the spark is shorting to ground. You may also have faulty spark plug wires that need to be replaced. You could also have a blown fuse to feeds battery power to the spark coil. You could also have an open ballast resistor in line with your spark coil and it needs to be replaced. Gas or Spark, but how the spark is generated really depends a lot on the car. Here's a test you can run to check for whether your car is starved for gas: Get a can of starter fuel and spray a couple of puffs (small amount) into your air cleaner. Once the battery is charged, try starting it. If it starts running and then dies, you can be pretty sure you have a gas problem.
One last possibility is that your exhaust is totally plugged. Do you feel or can an assistant feel any puffs or unburned exhaust coming out of the tail pipe? If no vapors come out, it could be plugged.
Oh, one other thing it could be. Your plugs may be flooded, especially if you pumped the gas pedal and it is a new model car. If it smells strongly of gas, your spark plugs may be wet (flooded) with gas. In that case, remove all spark plugs, disconnect your spark system, turn the engine over to blow out excess fuel, dry your spark plugs and reinstall them.

My 1995 jeep will die just driving and sometimes will start right back up other times you have to wait about an hour. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it


The pump can be running but not pumping any fuel.
When it stops running you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.

I was driving down the road and it just died and now it will not start


Check fuel pump fuse and then fuel pump relay if both are ok the fuel pump is bad. Make sure you check the power wire to the fuel pump for proper volts before you replace the pump.

Eng. controller Fuse keeps blowing when I turn the ignition on to start my car


Have you checked your wiring to starter? It sounds like the power wire going to starter has loosened up.That would cause fuse to blow and also the way you described that the car died. Or even check to see that the red wire going to starter hasn't gotten dinged or melted by the exhaust. Anything that would cause it to short out.

Stop running while doing 65mpr on freeway, first started dieing with fast left turn, got worse started dieing when i hit a bup in road, then started dieing with right or lift fast turns and bups in road,...


Check the Timing belt and the fuses. If you have installed anything that has wires that you connected into the fuse block check those to make sure one hasn't come free and shorted a fuse on the fuse block or Power distribution box in the engine compartment. Also, and I know this is a long shot, check the oil level in the engine to make sure your bump is working and that the sensor is responding correctly. I had a sensor go out once and when the engine got low on oil it didn't register but when I made turns you could hear it and feel it with a lose of power.

Most likely a lack of fuel, check the fuel filter first.
