Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak. You need to look closely around the carb/intake area for any disconnected small rubber hoses. Also check a fat rubber hose (1 inch or so) which goes to the big drum looking thing drivers side firewall - part of the brakes power booster system.

Look for hanging loose tubes/hose or worn through by rubbing etc.. Try to replace tubes to closest point where it looks like it goes. May have to cut a small peice off the end if it's stretched out and loose fitting.
Hope this helps

Sputtered out and now it won't stay running; dies when put in gear.


Mass air flow , crank sensor . I wouldn't discount anything . Having a scan tool that can view engine sensor data would be a great help too , testing fuel pressure and flow and back pressure test the exhaust .

Car dies when going over really bumpy roads


If the brake pedal goes hard right BEFORE the car dies, and not after, then you could have a problem INSIDE the brake power booster. try to verify this next time it dies at a stop, if you can safely pull the dead car off the road into a driveway (or try to make it stall in a bumpy parking lot) - then before you try to restart the car, open the hood, pull off the rubber hose where it's plugged into the brake power booster --> you SHOULD hear a big "Swoosh" of air being sucked into the booster because there's supposed to be a strong vacuum there even after the car stops running. if you get nothing there, your car is dying of an excessive vacuum leak through the brake booster.= bad booster.

The car starts fine and runs good but when i come to a stop it will die, but here is the problem it will start right back up but when i put it in gear r,d,1,2, the car will just die again.


Your solenoids inside the transmission may be bad, try to unplug the 4 wire connector to the front of the transmission to see if the problem still continues, if it doesn't then its the solenoids causing the problem, they stay engaged into gear thus car dies and when you put on park, it starts fine again, when you shift it dies again. I had the same problem, changed the all solenoids fix my problem. Hope it helps.

Does the vehicle restart and die when you put it in gear. If answer is yes then you need a torque converter clutch solenoid (TCC) or a brake light switch. The brake light switch cancels the TCC at a slow down or stop.. If it doesn't cancel it you will stall out. If your vehicle restarts and dies once you put it in gear then its the TCC. If none of these symptons fit your vehicle get back to me .

93 E150 5.8L Starts, runs fine; put it in drive (holding brake), engine dies. Won't restart for over 5 minutes, then acts as if 'flooded'; puff of black smoke.


check the fuel regulator vacumn line,if its getting vacumn then maybe the regulator is bad,which cost about $55.00

Dies when shifted into gear


May be having problems with engine vacuum leaking. Pull the large hose going to the vacuum operated brake booster and block off the hose end with a cork or other plug. Start the engine and see if it runs more smoothly. Set the emergency brake and put in gear--does it idle smoothly? If so, then you likely have a bad vacuum leak within the booster unit. Restore the vacuum hose to the cylinder and arrange to replace the cylinder.

Things seem to short out when brakes are applied es300 1993


It sounds like you may have a bad alternator, when your jumpers are hooked up, it has proper juice to run the accessories, but when you disconnect the jumpers the car is running on what little juice the battery has. The engine moving around, yes it very well may be the mounts, but that would not cause it to die like it is. When you step on your brake petal, it iluminates the brake lights, taking more juice from the battery. If you remove the alternator and bring it to any advance auto or autozone, they can test it for you for free, to tell if it needs replacing or not. Also check the fusable link located in the fuse compartment under the hood, and make sure that's good.
Hope this helps!
