If it have a old type distrubutor with points and condenser I would put in a new condenser because they will let motor run at idle but when you try to drive it won't work.

Why wont my 02 dodge dakota stay running


Hi Lee, I'm glad to help! Lee, there is a ton of things that can cause an engine to die. Any where from, the ignition switch going bad, to vacuum leaks, to low fuel pressure, Insufficient spark, Low Compression, Bad sensors, bad connections at the modules or sensors. If the vehicle will idle by itself, then you can perform a wiggle test on the wiring and connectors everywhere and see if it dies. You can also, tap on the engine controller to see if it dies, likewise the fuel pump. If you can get to the Cam Sensor and the Crank Sensor, that would be a good place to start, next wiggle the ignition switch and see if the radio and other things quit working, Hope this helps and have an awesome day Lee.

Truck idles fine. put in gear and apply gas it dies


Not sure this helps but I have run into several Ford pick up trucks that will idle all day but the moment it was put into gear and accelerated it would die. Fix was a new fuel pump. Had enough pressure to idle but not to take the gas. Your question did not include a make or model but first thing would be to check the fuel pressure at idle and see if it drops an acceleration. it is possible to have pressure but not volume.

92 SL1 won't idle-wants to die without pushing gas-just put in new plugs


Remove, clean and inspect the idle control valve on the throttle body. These tend to clog up over time, or the stepper motor fails. Check this before anything else.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

Engine Stalls when gear is put in neutral


Try having operation diagnosed so you can stop replacing parts at random - cheaper in the long run.
