Sounds like you have an Alternator problem. Take off the alternator and take it to an Auto parts store to get tested. It takes 1 minute.. If it doesnt work you found the problem. If it doesn't then you might have to look at the harmonic balancer ( Crank Shaft pulley). make sure its not slipping. if so the key broke and its not spinning the alternator correctly. Need to either replace the pulley or the key.

D it dies out and hard to start again


It could well be the fuel pump. Or maybe a fuel filter. Replace the filter if easily accessible. Even if it is not easily accessible, you can get a gauge to check for sufficient fuel pressure. You will be working with gas at that point. Unless you are experienced working on cars and for your own safety, get a reputable mechanic to check the pressure.

You are on the right track with questioning the fuel pump.
Someone would need to check fuel pressure with a gauge when it fails to start. The pump relay or the pump could be failing.

Oil pressure is jumping from 20lbs to 0lbs,truck almost dies then the oil pressure jumps back up to 30lbs then back to 10lbs ,


To start, take the vehicle to a dealer and ask them to screw an oil pressure gauge into the block hole and check your oil pressure whilst idling and while driving it.
I have a 1993 and it does the same thing, but the problem is only the gauge itself.
If it is actually having such oil pressure fluctuations, you may have a defective pump, a clogged pump filter screen, or a clogged oil filter.
God bless your efforts.

2003 Ford Taurus will periodically die while driving ! All warning lights will come on and engine will die. It will start again immediately after I put it in 'Park' and I can resume driving


This sounds like a bad connection, the problem is where, i have seen the wiring harness that goes over the transmission rub into wiring and cause engine to shut down and then restart again and run until the right movement is made to shut down again.

Try starting the car and do the wiggle test, start grabing wiring and moving around and see if engine dies out.

85 with TBI only needs 13lbs of fuel pressure. verify that the fuel filter is clean. there is no easy way to ck fuel pressure, special adapters are needed, I dont have info here at home but there should be a relay for the pump, on the firewall and the oil pressure switch also powers the pump. did you replace the pump trying to fix this problem or did you just mention it to help troubleshoot the problem? verify that the fuel pump wiring has a good ground, should have been a eyelet that bolted to the frame..when you initially turn the key on, you should hera the fuel pump power up for 2 seconds, then go off, after the engine starts, the power for the pump goes through the oil pressure switch.

93 honda civic ex sputtered and died while driving


Is there any white smoke coming out the exhaust? Sounds like the same problem my friend had when he warped his head on his 91 civic. Any overheating at all? Otherwise another guess would be maybe a bad catalitic converter that clogged up. Hope this helps any, good luck
