If you feel it starting to die - toss it into neutral before coming to a full stop.

If it then keeps running, your TCC solenoid is locking up (common problem on all TH125C trannies). As a quick fix, pop the hood and disconnect the square green 4 pin connector going into the tranny. No more lockup over 50km/h, but no more stalling.

Wont stay running for very long


run the fault codes and look for problems in the canister system. Sounds like the tank is not venting properly and creating a vacuum in the tank which is restricting fuel flow to the engine.

Check the plugs and see if they have fuel on them if not check the catalytic converter it could be plugged and putting back pressure on the engine and not allowing the fuel into the cylinders. Can you spray fuel into the throttle body and get it to run. If so you may have a fuel pump problem or fuel filter issue. I am betting on the cat. you can pull the o2 sensor ahead of the cat and the engine should run if it is plugged. It will run rough but at least it should start.

hi, i need to know something about your car in order to help you.
does your car have a distributor or 2 coil packs under the manifold.
there is 2 different problems.
i think your prob is your fuel pump breaking down under load, its common, get back to me 1st with my question before u do anything.

Sputtering wont start no power


most likely a fuel filter problem. try takeing a rubber mallet {not steel} and pound on the bottom of the gas tank. this will sometimes dislodge whatever is clogging the filter screen. Your engine fuel injected and needs a certain amount of pressure to operate correctly. You can have a repair shop do a pressure test on the system.
