I'm not exactly sure with out more info.Do you have a check engine light on. This could be caused from several different sensors. The mas air flow sensor controls how much fuel is injected into the engine.So that is one possibility. It could be your O2 sensor or possibly even your throttle positioning sensor.I really need a little more info.

Use the brake pedal. Downshifting to slow down is not very smart if you're not in a race car. Have you ever tried to replace a front-wheel drive clutch? Could cost over $1000 to have done at a shop.

Brakes are cheap....and easy to replace, even in your driveway!

My 1991 toyota camry dies while Im driving


You must know if the fuel tank, line and filter are cleaned. It is probably because the fuel system is clogged. While you drive the fuel pump is taking the fuel as much as it can from fuel line and some fuel gets past the clog. When the fuel line is totally empty your car dies off. After you wait for some while the fuel has filled the line again and you can drive for a while. Also it can be some other problem, but for that i would need to know how often it happens, after what distance, does it twitches before it stops, it is fading out instantly or like loosing power but the engine doesnt sound to slow down accordingly during some 15 - 20 seconds until dies. There can be many reasons so it would help to know more.

I have a 1994 buick skylark with 2.3 and a/t it runs and drives great except when slowing from high speeds it dies when approaching a stop. it jerks like transmission isn't shifting. when u restart it,...


Check for vacuum leaks on all hoses underhood. Make sure all intake componets are intact and they are tight.

Is the check engine light on? If so, get to an auto parts store, they should pull the codes for free.

Sounds almost like a bad throttle position sensor. The computer uses the TPS to help know when to shift on this car if I remember right, and if the TPS is bad, it can cause that jerking. Along with the car dying when slowing down after driving. But check everything else out first. Including electrical connections.

I have been having problems with my 1998 ford windstar 3.8L with rough idle and dying, i changed the mass air flow sensor, and air filter, ran gas treatment through it, and it hasn't helped, then yesterday...


I have a 98 Windstar and it would die when pulling up to a stop sign, slowing when coming to a stop or making a slow turn. According to Ford recall 98E03 EMISSIONS RECALL some vehicles may stall during deceleration when coming to a stop, during slow speed parking maneuvers and/or coasting thru slow sweeping turns. This may be caused by the Powertrain Contro lModule (PCM) calibration dropping the rpms too quickly during deceleration. This involves reprograming the PCM. The revised calibration will allow the engine rpms to drop slowly during low speed maneuvers to reduce the possibility of a stall. Call your local FORD dealership (have your VIN handy) and have them check to see if this recall has been performed on your vehicle.

2001 Chrysler Concorde LXI randomly stalling while slowly dow to stop or turn. Will usually crank back. This car will sit and idle for ever, but when you drive it for 10-15 minutes and slow down to stop or...


One suggestion:
Speed sensor failure.

Info:
Some of the classic symptoms, stalling at dead stops. failure to auto lock doors. poor fuel economy. Failure to go to overdrive.


Recommendation:
Go to your local parts store and run the failure codes.

Shop notes:
Your ECU thinks that the engine is running with out moving, During slow down the engine steps down the idle to match ground speed and as a result the engine will not stall. At present it goes directly to idle and stalls due to drag on motor.
Hope this tip helps.

The engine dies when slowing down or turning


How long have you been driving? Have you had the fuel filter replaced? It sounds as if may be a fuel delivery issue.
