The first thing is to make sure every thing is connected back, check everything again, also most cars loose there information on idleing, so you need to start car and hold gas pedal a little to keep it running this is done for about 5 min, then slowly let gas pedal up and let idle on its own for 10 min,. the check engine light if you find nothing then go to an autozone or other parts store that does free scanning, they will be able to scan the computer and tell you the codes and what they mean, these codes help you find the problem, for example it could saypo1255 mass are flow circuit. then you would look at the mass air flow sensor and make sure the wire is hooked in and the hose is connected. hope this helps.

Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

WHY DOES MY 1997 DODGE STRATUS STALLS


if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.

I'm Going To Assume You HGav The 3.2L Opal Engine. These Were Most Common For The Crangshaft Position Sensor Failling When Hot, Causing A Stall. When The Vehicle Stalled The Sensor Would Cool & The Engine Would ReStart. This Would Repeat Over & Over, & Over...
If You Have Access To A Scan Tool, Check For DTC P0335, If It Does Even As History, Replace The CKP Sensor First.
