    Ford Escort SE Wagon, 1998, 85,000 miles, 5 speed manual. I too have had a similar problem, only when A/C is on. The stalling will happen at anytime (w/ A/C on), more problematic when in an idle mode, however it has happened at normal driving speed recently. Car will start after waiting 30 to 45 seconds. I have had this problem for about year. Last summer replaced the fuel filter, IRCM module, PVC valve and air filter. No end on the horizon. Am interested in whatever solution you come up with as my car is going back in the shop. BTW, I have had an engine anaylzer plugged into the PCM module with no engine fail codes recorded. A big mystery to me at this point.

I have a '93 Camry with the 3VFE 3.0 V6. It will not idle after coming up to operating temperature. From reading your past advice, I removed and cleaned the IAC valve. It was pretty fouled, so suspected it was the culprit. After a long test drive including highway speeds, stopping at a red light would cause it stall again. But during cold start up the car performed well, and idled at about 1100 rpm. I jumpered the TE1 and E1 diagnostic ports, and got only the normal mode, continuous flashing light. Do you have any further advice? I appreciate any help you can give me. This is a great site because of the many helpful people on here like you. Thanks again.
Answer -
Since there is no check engine light the problem is mechanical and not related to the EFI system with the exeption of a faulty air flow meter which in most cases will not trigger a check engine light, but before replacing this expensive part you need to check for any air leaks on the intake side, check for any loosenes or cracks in the large intake hoses from the air filter to the throttle body also check for any other possible vacuum leaks on the intake system.

you might want to look at your O2 sensors, they can cause the motor to run lean or rich. also you might have an electrical issue that is tripping your ECM. your electronic control module might be faulty. best solution is to get a trouble code reader and find out what your on board computer has stored. from there you can repair and clear the codes.

Check the primary and secondary resistance on the coil. When a coil starts to go it will short out when it gets hot. Also check any temp soleniods you may have to make sure they are good

0340 is camshaft position sensor and the other 0325 is the knock sensor. Chances are you need to replace the sensors and good to go.

Takes multiple times to start


I think you have a faling fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator allowing fuel pressure to bleed down when the engine is off.
Try this test - When you start the car for the first time of the day, turn the key to "ON", wait a few seconds, turn the key off. Wait about 15 seconds, turn the key to "ON" again, wait a few seconds. Then wait one final time for 1 seconds and try starting the car. If it starts right away, that means fule pressure is bleeding of due to a bad check vavle int he fuel pump, a bad fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator.

The reason for the procedure is because when you turn the key to "ON", the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then shuts off if the engine is not running. The 15 seconds wait is for the power and fuel pump relay to cycle off before it will run the pump again.

Let us know how the test comes out. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and hums when it is running.

Check the sensors on the throttle body. There is a sensor that controls air to fuel ratio. If that sensor is bad then the car will run and then stall out while in drive. I had the same problem when it was cold outside last winter. If you dont want to dish out the money without knowing if it is that part at fault or not then start the van pop the hood and located the throttle body. Place your hand on the sensors and give them a little shake and then make sure they are plugged in all the way. You could also turn the van off and unhook the sensor clean the connectors and plug it back in. That should do the trick and if it doesnt stall anymore then I would replace those sensors if I was you. One more thing. If your giving the sensors a tug while the car is running and you hear it going to stall you could located the gas pedal cable and give it a rev or two by hand so it doesnt stall out and turn off. By the way. You van isnt over heating at all is it?
