Check your spark plugs. Also may be a fault in your fuel pump.

The other day my car randomly shut off while i was driving, now it does it everytime i go to drive it ...if i give it a lot of gas it wont shut off but if i dont give it any gas then it will shut off...


a few things to do. First, clean the MAF sensor heated short wires with spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner. It's on the big air intake tube. Wires are inside.
Next, check fuel pressure. should be 34 psi.

Last, replace distributor with one from Rich Porter on Ebay, the Import Experts. $200. There is a cam sensor inside that goes bad, not serviceable. Remove cap & rotor & cover & look for brown dust from bearing failure too. Usually they run good cold & quit when warm.

Please rate if helpful. report findings.

My ford explorer 1997 V6 4.0L my truck start but unless i press the gas but as soon as i stop giving gas the truck stop i got told i need to change my alternator because i just changed the blower motor and...


doesnt make sense, you went from giving gas to keep running ,to switching blower motor,Heater blower motor i assume? to replace alternatoer? i'm lost, blower motor has nothing to do with the motor running or not. the alternator charges the battery in which you need power to run the electronics for ignition. make sure battery has full charge. now maybe your fuel shut off switch has triped.( located on passenger side firewall inside trk. remove lower side panel and you will see a black box with a button on it it should be pressed in if it is not then no fuel is getting to engine.press and attempt to start.

I have a 2005 ford f150 stx with a 4.2 liter v6. When i shut it off the motor shakes from side to side quit a bit. Motor shuts off fine but rocks a lot. Just wanted to know if this was normal for a 4.2...


The shaking is not normal. It should just shut down and stop rotation smoothly. It almost sounds like you are experiencing preignition possibly without the knock. Try a different mechanic or consult you local Ford dealer and speak to the service writer. Something is not correct.

Motor starts and then shuts off


does it stay running if you give it gas? start it with a little pressure on the pedal and keep it revved. release the pedal. if it shuts off, replace the idle air control valve/motor
