You need to check fuel pressure. You can rent the tool to do this at autozone. Just screw it onto the relief valve which is usually on the fuel line before the throttle body. Then start the car and read the pressure. Watch to see if the pressure drops before the car dies. NOTE the pressure will drop after it stalls thats normal. If it does drop BEFORE the call stalls its either the fuel filter or the fuel pump.
If the pressure is good, check for a vacuum leak, listen for hissing while running, make sure you dont lean into the moving belts with long hair or loose clothes.

Diesel engine runs then stops then runs stops every few minutes


Mate I use to drive a freightliner and it cut out on me one day, I eventually got it started but cut out again after about 5 minutes, I rang a mechanic to come out and he found a heat sensor wire came off the radiator and that caused the motor to cut out... Hope I haven't wasted your time.......

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

If you are dealing with the anti theft the anti theft will flash as you are trying to start the vehicle if this is the case then it is the anti theft if not then you are not dealing with a ant theft issue. You can do a 30 minute relearn procedure without a scan tool. here is how Turn ignition on without the engine reunning.attempt to start the vehicle then release the key to ON.(vehicle doest start) Observe the security light.afeter 10 minutes the security light will turn off.Turn off the ignition and wait 5 seconds.do this 3 times for 30 minutes. start the engine with the engine started the vehicle will learn the passlock key.

1995 LeSabre - Starts and runs fine, but engine cuts off without warning. First time, 5mph in a crowded school commute traffic. Put in park, and started right away. Second time, after turning onto...


If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

Motor starts and runs for less than a minute then cuts off and WILL NOT CRANK OVER again for 15 to 20 minutes. then it cranks over, starts, runs less than a minute and cuts off again. it has been fine...


It sound more like a plugged catalytic converter. When you start the engine the pressure starts to build until the engine sufficates then after you let it set the pressure bleeds off and lets the engine restart.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.

2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start


The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.

1991 Mercedes 190 starts but cuts out when driving


You could have a defective fuel pump, when they go bad they can draw enough current to fry the relay contacts, so I would suggest you test how many amps the fuel pump is drawing, I have fixed this very issue of repeated relay replacements, it was always the pump was shot.
