Sounds like bad solenoid or wiring to solenoid. Possible ignition switch but not likely. Check wiring to solenoid, if looks good replace solenoid. Unfortunately it's mounted on top of starter meaning starter has to come out to change.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


If it is a diesel vehicle check the pressure of the diesel pump. It would appear that the diesel pump on this model wears out and it loses pressure. If the pressure is ok there is switch/filter on the common rail that might be blocked. Unfortunately it appears that this switch can not be cleaned but must be replaced. hope this helps.

02 hyundai santa fe died abruptly driving down the highway and wont restart the engine cranks but won't start it is the v-6 model


Never seen a big engined petrol one of these ,diesel manuals yes plenty abound ,but this year model on the diesel anyway suffers from a crankshaft keyway problem and it wears away allowing the front pulley and timing gear to move allowing the pistons to hit the valves ,now later models had a deeper keyway as a remedy but yours is a 2002 and this could suffer the same problem as the diesels.So check the timing marks first before you change this and that ,V6 petrol ?? try paying 7 dollars a gallon and then say if the diesel isnt the best for economy

I have a 2001 f250 7.3L turbo diesel. The truck starts and runs for about 100 to 200 feet and then starts to rough idle and dies, after turning the engine over for about 10 to 15 seconds it will start and...


Sounds like you may have a high pressure oil leak, if you check the oil resevoir level before you start the truck you may find it low or empty. Its located at the front of the engine in front of the fuel filter housing, there should be a threaded plug you can remove to look in, if its empty or looks low, fill it up with the proper oil and put the plug back and try it then, if its ok now, you likely have an oil leak, typically failed o-rings on one or more injectors. You can buy injector o-ring kits but its a fairly involved job, I am a Ford Diesel tech and it usually takes me about 3 hours to replace all the o-rings on all 8 injectors, first time for someone who's never done it will probly be closer to 5 or 6 hours.

My 95' Chevy diesel k2500 stalls out when im driving it. it will idle just fine and starts back up right after stalling. truck will drive about 1 mile before stalling again. What Can I check?


I have replaced many injector driver modules on these diesels. GM has redesigned it and i have never had a replacement one fail. This is a known problem for the 6.5 diesel. Unfortunately its about a 500 dollar part from the dealer, and requires intake removal, and some very tight work space to replace.

How can i fix a clogged fuel pump on a 2001 chevy malibu. the fuel pump is working ( you can hear it hum when you turn the key) I removed my back set to make sure and the car will turn over but wont start....


Have you changed the fuel filter? Did it die while driving, or just wouldn't start? Don't use starting fluid on a gas engine! It will cause a lot more problems than it solves. Ether, starting fluid is made for diesel engines... not gas, not ever. If it won't start, it isn't lacking ether. It's lacking gas, air or spark.

My 2001 chevy diesel truck is very hard to start below 35 degrees


check the glow plugs usually nd external check would indicate power to the plug but in your case i would suggest you to pull atleast a couple of plugs and makes sure that they are getting hot you will find that the plugs are not working replace the glow plugs and the engine will have no problem in starting adn if you live in a cold region make sure that our electric corde is plugged in all night since the diesels need to be warm to operate necause they strictly work on heat from the engine and they do not have spark plugs to ignite the fuel.

Engine dies


I had the same problem with my 94 chevy 6.5 diesel,and spent alot of money trying things that people told me to try.I wound up taking it to the dealer and they told me it was the injection pump.They put one in it and that fixed it.It has run great for over a year and a half.This set me back about $4000.00!
