    I have the same problem. It starts and runs for about 20 minutes, then dies like its out of fuel. took off fuel rail bolt and there was no fuel. If it sits for about 20 min the fuel pump kicks back in. and it starts and it does the same thing over and over. Checked fuel filter ??

    I have a saab 93 se 2000, I replaced a petrol pump 4 months ago and now I have to replace it again, why is it damaged, what am I doing wrong? Is it the petrol quality? any ideas?

    I think this sounds like the same problem it will do it at random times though no regularity the car will just die and not want to start it will turn over but its like no gas is getting to the engine after a couple of minutes with the car off it will start back up just fine. I would greatly appriciate knowing if the maf or the fuel pump was the problem for you guys

Its the crank sensor, i had that problem to. the car will start and when it gets a little warm it will just die and wont start again until the engine cools a bit then it will fire right up. ok heres the bad news, a new crank sensor is going to cost about $275

The most common faults for those symptoms are:
1/ Fuel pump faulty.
2/ Mass air flow sensor (Between air filter housing and engine)
Let me know with a little more detail about what happens, may be could assist more.

My 2001 pt cruiser will run ten minutes stall and wont start back no fire at all but will start back up normal after a couple hours and then run ten mins and stall out have replaced coil pack cam/crank...

A mechanic would check the ASD relay and the coil for voltage when the engine will not start.
You might also want to check the computer for trouble codes.

No power to engine no tick over

suggest you try to boost the car off by another car. you may have to have the cables hooked to your car for about 15minutes to let your battery build up enough to start yours though.or if you have a battery charger, hook it to it and let it charge for 15minutes. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Will start up run for awhile then stall and wont restart

Hello, I would start with a general tune up. Spark plugs and wires, Fuel Filter, Oil Change and Filter Change, Air Filter Change, Some injector cleaner would not hurt eirther. Be sure to lubricate your high mileage car and also use a farily good oil for your motor as well. The run for awhile problem sounds like bad spark plugs. I would change your spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotarty button.

My 206 1.9 diesel wont start

a diesel engine can only cutout when overheating, loss of diesel fuel and air leak in the fuel system. if you know how to bleed or ask somebody to bleed right after it stall, then start the car, if it starts immediately then it is sucking air.
