I am assuming that this is a fuel injected car. Are you sure that the injectors are getting enough fuel in the engine to keep it running?

Rpm guage cuts out and car quits but starts right away all the time


Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and have the care scanned for any DTC codes. Auto Zone scan free of charge and that way we might get to the problem right away. It could be your cam sensor or crank shaft sensor or both that may have gone bad. There are just to many sensors that can shut down the engine and getting the car scanned will eliminate replacing good parts. Good luck and keep me posted.
