Do you still have power? if no check for loose battery cables or main fuse
If yes do you get spark ?if no check for pulse on crank angle sensor with a lab scoope ,but you can test both wires going to the coil check for a pulse while cranking
now check for all grounds on body
check for fuel relay maybe grounding

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

98 sentra starts and runs great. drive it about 50 feet and loses power and dies. starts right back up then go 50 feet and the problem repeats itself. only code was cylinder 3 misfire. also changed fuel...


It is probably a carberator problem your intaking to much fuel or oxygen So what i would do is check the little buble in the the carberator that stops the fuel when enough fuel is in the carborator it might need replacing

Hello, I have a 1992 Chevy K1500 pickup, 5 speed, 4WD. I just replaced thermal 4WD actuator for the front axle with the new motor type and with a new wiring harness. Always goes into 4WD right away now....


Sounds like you have the actuator switch set to tight. You might want to try to adjust the switch so it has a little room between the switch and the shifter. Hope this helps.

It started, I drove 50 feet, it died, won't start...not the battery, can't even find the spark plugs to change them or test them, never had a problem before, always started right up.Didn't give any...


The spark plugs are under the coils on top of the valve cover. You have to unbolt the coils and lift them out of the way to get access the the plugs(4-10 mm head bolts) Two of the coils are also plug caps directly connected to two of the plugs..

Left turn signal start normal then gets faster.


First thing to look for is a bulb that's not working. Most cars use this feature to let you know when a light is not working. Try this: While the left flasher is going fast, check to make sure ALL the lights are working as there may be more than two. Use the right signal as a reference to check how many there are that SHOULD be working.

If this problem comes and goes, there is most likely a bad connection between bulb and socket and if so, unplugging/replugging the bulb should fix it. There are two bulb types: push-in and push-twist-pull.

Feedback always welcome, and don't forget to vote!

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.

My A/C fan will not work always


the fan should be located under the dash on the passenger side. also make sure that the reostat connection is nice and tight this controls the fan speed and sometimes it can come loose due to vibration.

1999 300M 150,000 Miles

Car dies when coming off acceleration or at idle in traffic or at a stop. I can watch the Tach go to 0 RPM, some times it will restart immediately other times it is hard to start, so far I have always been able to re-start it and Drive on. Does anybody have verified fix for this issue, I have seen posts saying can and crank sensor, throttle body, EGR, and many more ideas... Do not really want to just start replacing parts with the hope that I eventually get a fix. Help...
