Replaced the k134 car cuts off after engine gets hot. guessing 40 minutes of driving


The battery in most cars is used only for starting and operating electrics when the engine is not running.

After that, the alternator provides power to operate ignition and electric systems - and of course; recharge the battery. A faulty battery shouldn't cause the car to stop running. If the alternator is not functioning properly, the car will get power from the battery instead. When this happens, the voltage will drop quickly - depending on how many electrical accessories are on, etc. You will notice headlights becoming dim at night just before the engine quits. The car would not be able to start / run until the battery is recharged.

Wont start when cold


Does the engine crank? fuel delivery
Engine does not crank, solenoid clicks? Poor electrical connection, weak battery.
No engine crank, no solenoid, nothing? Battery, electrical connections.
