SOURCE: 89 thunderbird - 3.8 Car dies

i had this problem on my 88 t-bird 3.8L. not exactly sure of the cause but to remedy mine... it seems the computer was not telling the fuel pump that the car was running. so the fuel pump would quit pumping. run a wire from your battery to the positive line going to the fuel pump (temporary). if this solves the problem (and you don't mind solving it this way) make the wire run clean and hook it to a switch so you can turn it on when you wanna drive. this is not the way a dealership would fix it but its also not gonna cost you more than you probably have invested in your car. hope this helps

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

SOURCE: 2001 focus. Replaced plugs, wires and coil pack.

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

SOURCE: car stalls will not restart for a few minutes

Have you tried putting some gas additive like sea foam into the gas tank prior to filling it up? It may be a bad or clogged injector.

When is the last time you did a tune up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap with rotor etc?

Is the engine surging in rpm? if so, try replacing the mas air flow censer and or O2 censer.

1989 regal tach stopped working


check for a faulty wire/s to the tacho of a faulty tacho unit
the tacho gets its reading by the ignition impulses so any engine running problems may have been a result of the faulty tacho or wires.

2006 VW GOLF TURBO DIESEL 1.9 STARTS UP GOES 5 TO 9 MILES STALLS WAIT 5 MINUTES GO AGAIN AND STALLS


Hi. It would be useful to get a code read and some live data from a decent diagnostic tool. There are quite a few possible causes including, pressure in tank - if the fuel tank can't vent pressure then a vacuum will eventually form stopping fuel getting to the engine, this will cause it to loose power and stall. Then after a few mins the pressure will drop and the process start again, easy test is when the car stalls remove filler cap - if that's the fault there will be an audible hiss and the car will start up again.

part blocked exhaust will have same problems but will more generally cause a lack of power and acceleration.
are there other symptoms? i.e only when conering or only when pulling off or stopping, engine light on/off. Jon

1991 geo prism brake and battery came on while driving for few minutes then went off what's it trying to tell me?


the battery is really charge failure.
but happens normally under 2 ways.
1: motor stalls, (car have M/T or A/T)
2: motor RPM drops real low, to like 500rpm or less. near stall.
and generator (alt) drops off line.
all normal, next time , look at RPM of engine when the lamps come on and that tells you what is happening.
buy a tachmeter, if no dash tach opted.
or use a mech. tach and use it while driving.

'93 GMC Sierra 5.0L auto 2WD - at idle and on the road the tach fluctuates wildly. Engine rpms may fluctuate a couple hundred or so, but I'm going off sound. At idle, tach still fluctuates wildly, engine...


could be a number of things. timing may be off. timing chain could have jumped but then you would have lack of power and backfire. could have a vacuum leak. throttle body have carbon buildup around the butterfly valves? Valve problems. compression problems. many things. Hope its nothing major I know I am not being much help but those are some things to look at.
