I had the same problem with Tribute 2002, it starts then stops. it will keep running as long as you press the gas pedal, no engine check light was on. I changed the Idle Air Control about 3-4 weeks and so for it is running fine.

2002 Honda CR-V stalls, mostly when the gas tank gets low (aka light on) but not only then. Engine will not stay on unless its constantly gassed, when I come to lights, I put it in neutral and gas it


water in fuel. put some water remover or gas line antifreeze in and keep tank full. the reason its worse after sitting is because the water sinks to bottom of tank and then the car is trying to run on just water. after driving it mixes with fuel

Have you checked the wire that goes to the fuel tank. I have the same issue and I have to go and jiggle the wire going to the fuel tank. I'm going to take it to see about getting that fixed.

Most likely cause is a leaking vacuum hose on your air intake. It's a common problem on tributes but should be easy and cheap to fix. Look for cracks, holes, or roughness on the small black pipes near your engine and air intake and while you're there check the end connections are secure/tight. If you find cracks, holes, etc then replace the hose, if the connection is loose, then tighten it..

It could also be that your Mass Air Flow sensor is stuffed. Not as cheap, but still easy to fix.

I have a 1990 4 cyl jeep wrangler i just filled tank with gas, drove 1 block and jeep stalled. Jeep starts right back up but will not stay running, seems as though its not getting enough gas. Is this a...


It could be the pump but you need to verify if you can hear the pump running after it stalls and you turn the key back on to try and start it. If you don't hear it it isn't running.
The pump is inside the tank but it dosen't come inside, you need to put it in there. That requires removing the tank. On a 90, there is a filter mounted on the chassis near the left rear tire. I'd replace that first as if you replace the pump, that should be replaced as well and if it's plugged up it may in fact be the only problem.

My daughter's 2003 Mazda Tribute sometimes won't stay running. It will start but when you take your foot off the gas it stalls. She's had it towed home and then it starts right up!


if when running it runs well apart from idle problem i would suggest you have the throttle body and idle speed control valve cleaned out and add a fuel system cleaner to fuel tank also check wireing to idle speed control valve

TRIBUTE TURNS OFF


suprisingly it could be the TCC Solenoid on ur transmission. it could be locked in a gear and when u go to change the gear it stalls out. sooner or later the clutch in the auto transmission will let go and allow you to move. its a long shot. does this happen after a dead cold start or have u been running the car for a while?
