First - check to see if the battery cables are still connected securely and didn't work loose. Second - You might want to have the battery tested to make sure it still has juice. If it shows that the battery is already worn down, you should have your alternator checked.

My 2001 bmw ci run, and then just shut off, after a few minute it will run again, and shut off while driving it. Please Help


You need to determine if it losing electrics or fuel. Does it sputter as it dies, or just dead off? Dead off usually means spark circuit has been interrupted. Think of things such as bad coil, crank sensor, ignition module. These items have electrical coils inside, which can develop a crack in a wire which heats as running and fails, then cools and will run again. If it seems fuel related, first check for bad gas cap vent, then use fuel pressure gauge situated so that you can see it while driving and see if pressure drops just before car dies. This could mean bad fuel pump, dirty filter, bad relay.

When you say no power, do you mean no headlights or anything ? Do you have power at the starter posts ?

Our 2001 camry lost power going down the road and died. We looked under the hood and the pulley that comes off the engine that runs the alternator belthad came apart. If the pulley came apart and that belt...


I'm not sure about the belt set up, it should be on a sticker under the hood. But losing your alt can cause the car to die due to loss of electrical power to run the computer, fuel pump, coils, ext. on some cars you can run for awhile on the battery, but eventually it'll die. Some cars are set up to die if the alt fails so that the rest of the cars systems can still be used

2001 Buick Regal just dies going down the road but starts again


Hi there,

Your vehicle's onboard computer will most likely tell you what's wrong - it could be one of many things relating to electrics, fuel or both.

I recommend you go to an "authorised" Buick service agent (who has the correct code reader) to get the codes read off your vehicle's computer. The dealer can explain what the codes mean.

Cheers,

I was driving my car and when turning i lost my power steering and brakes when i parked i turned off the engine and after that it wont restart. later on we found that the sparks wernt getting any fuel but...


Question?? did you lose your serpentine belt, so your lost your power steering and then the engine died. Or did the engine die and then you lost the power steering??? If the engine died, may be the fuel filter has reached the end of it's life and dirty and needs to be replaced, If the engine was running and you lost the serpentine belt, the belt may have taken out your crank shaft sensor, so the engine does not know when to command the #1 injector to fire to get the engine to start. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.
