I had this same problem and spent $500.00 trying everything to fix it. I have a 2001 Mercury Cougar and it turned out to be the fuel pump. On my particular car to replace the fuel pump was $750.00 to $950.00. I just about fainted. So I went on line and did a google search for recalls on my car and the fuel pump happened to be under a recall - Thank God. So Ford ended fixing it for free. I would highly recommend checking this out first. Of course these things do expire after a while but the time limit for this particular recall was 10 years from the date of manufacture.

2003 Mercury Sable LS Car Died.. while driving Now Won't start.


There are lots of reasons for the car dying, first and foremost is the gas gage is wrong and you ran out of gas, second is electronic engine control issues, have the engine control computer scanned for fault codes. Lastly is a failure of the engine itself.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately


Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.
