On tbi chevy engines with distributor cap style ignition the fuel injectors will be disabled if ignition module loses input signal from the distributor itself, 2wire connector hardwired out of top of distributor itself plugs into ignition modle, have to remove distributor cap to see it. Replace the distributor and vehicle will no longer die, be sure rotor ends up pointing in exact position as old distributor, mark position of rotor and hold down bolt for timing, easy to install one tooth off either direction, rotor will rotate as distributor is removed as bottom gear that rides on camshaft are spiral cut. Welcome, done tons for this concern.

Check engine light comes on after driving any given amount of time. Replaced egnition modual didn't work, replaced pcv valve, didn't work, replaced stater module, didn't work, replaced the fuel filter, didn't work. Took it in for diagnostics and was told that it is either the egnition module, computer, or the wires that are attached to the computer that go out to different parts in the engine.

Have a 1995 Buick Regal. Car stalls when braking at a stop sign or braking into a left or right turn.RPMs drop to 500 then stalls without warning.Car starts right up with no problem and runs great.


Do you hear a sucking noise from under the hood when you apply the brakes? You could have a bad brake booster venting too much engine vacuum when applying the brakes causing the engine to die.

Saturn vue will start but will only stay runnuing about twenty minutes then stalls wont start


Does the car loose power before stalling or does it simply die without warning? If it loses power first, you're likely looking at a fuel pump or fuel system problem. If it just dies, you probably have an ignition problem. Does the check engine light come on before it dies?

2002 audi a4 shuts off without warning


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting. I want you to let me know if the solution(s) suggested were of any value. Constructive criticism is welcomed.

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

I recommend that you get a free diagnostic scan at your closest AutoZone. It's not as comprehensive as the $105 scan that you can get at an authorized dealer but it's an intelligent starting point.

Let me point out two possibilities that mirror your symptoms but may be completely unrelated but can be eliminated by a free diagnostic scan:

  1. The Engine Control Module (ECM) can fail causing stalling, and engine and transmission drivability concerns.
  2. The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop. In my experience when this occurs, the engine usually will restart and stall when put into gear. After allowing about twenty minutes for the engine and transmission to cool down, the engine will start and the transmission will operate normally. Replacing the torque converter clutch solenoid, transmission filter, and fluid will generally correct this issue.

MAZDA 626 ENGINE RANDOM PAUSING/STALLING


The cooling system?? That would be my last guess, right after the spare tire. Sounds like an electrical issue. Quite often remote starters, especially those not installed at the factory, can cause these problems. Is there a "check engine" code?

Does it start right back up after it stalls? make sure all conections are tight at fuel pump, sounds like it could be loosing ground at pump, or hot lead is loosing its connection at pump.Also fuel pump relay could be getting hot and quits working.
