Look in to geeting your Idle Air Conrol (IAC) module replaced or repaired, also if its an older model, take it out at higher speeds for a bit to clear the catalytic converter of carbon buildup. its always been the case when mine stalls.

SOURCE: Engine will not start

Most likely the fuel pump has failed, check the pressure while someone cranks the engine over.

SOURCE: Car Starts but wont go.

It could be a couple things. There may be a vaccuum leak in the fuel system such as a bad EGR or PCV valve or the throttle position sensor. I'm leaning towards the throttle position sensor needing replaced. The throttle position sensor reads how far you're pressing on the gas peddle and then feeds that to the computer telling it how much gas to feed to the engine. If that sensor isnt working right then your car will get enough gas to start and idle but will starve for gas as soon as you try drive and will then stall.

2001 vw cabrio starts then dies immediately. will not stay running and you can smell gas -- seems to be flooding


Often, when a vehicle starts and dies immediately, there is a problem with the security system. It could be a key fob with a bad battery or a system that has lost communication with the rest of the vehicle. Try using a different key to start the vehicle. If this does not work, try scanning the vehicles computer to find any fault codes. Security system issues often have to be repaired by a dealer or a shop with qualified equipment. If you smell fuel when the vehicle starts and then dies, flooding would not be the problem, but rather a lack of fuel. Look for puddles of fuel under the vehicle and make sure there are no loose connections or bad lines.

Check guages light comes on after short drive while engine is running, and the car died while driving on I-95 the lights started flickering getting dimmer. the radio would turn off when anything else...


It sounds like the Alternator is actually bad.
One great way to determine this:
Recharge the new battery with a trickle charge overnight. Make sure use remove the wires going to the Battery before recharging.
Replace the Battery Wires.
Get the Vehicle Started.
When it has Started: Leave it Running and Disconnect and Remove the Negative side of the Battery. If the Vehicle dies, it is the Alternator that is bad, and needs to be replaced..
The Battery starts that vehicle, and provides nominal power to certain accessories. The Alternator actual Runs the Engine and Recharges the Battery with a low trickled charge.

Starts and dies as soon as it starts running


could be numerous issues.

First check your intake air filter - replace if very dirty and try again.

try going to an auto store where they offer free vehicle diagnostic scans. Get the codes and the problem parts.

It could be one of many sensors including O2 sensor, crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor

Most of those are fairly easy to replace on this vehicle

Let me know what you find

2003 Honda Accord. Dies when I try to put it in drive


you are having a problem with your alternator. the battery has a main purpose to start the vehicle, keep computer memory, and give power to electrical components when the key is in the on position. the alternator charges the battery and gives power to electrical components when the vehicle is running. now when you hit the brakes there was an extra load added to the alternator and if the car died then the alternator is running very weak and needs to be relace.

My suggestion is to provide an auxillary fuel source, for diagniostic purposes.

Does the vehicle run porperly when running down the road? if so, fuel flow is not your issue.

What is the normal ambient temprature where you use the vehicle, especially during the dying event?

Has the vehicle heat soaked (which is normal) prior to the issue? Heat soak happens when you turn off the vehicle, no more cooling, temps spike, sometimes causing problems.

During the dying event, does anything that you do help? give throttle, etc?
