I have a 1989 Probe LX and I had a problem that felt like vapor lock... it was cutting out and driving real slugish with a huge loss of power. My mechanic played around with it and found way too much exhaust back pressure. He replaced the exhaust pipe from the manifold to the tailpipe and that fixed the problem, which turned out to be the catalytic converter rusting out and it collaped on the inside, blocking off most of the exhaust before it could go out the tailpipe. expensive problem solved, car runs great now!

My 2002 chevy monte carlo keeps cutting off while i'm driving whats wrong with it


Could be a dozen different things.
Is the check engine light on ?
Does it happen at the same time or under the same conditions ?
Does it start back up or do you have to wait ?

98/88 delta oldsmoble cuts off while driving what could it be


The warning lights on the dash will come on when the engine dies.
If it dies and starts up like you turned the key it could be a relay or other electrical problem. May be tough to find if you can't test components while it is not starting.
I assume the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

I have a dawoo matiz car .790cc year 2000.wich keeps blowing the e.c.m fuse and this cuts off the fuel supply. sometimes it starts ok then suddenly it blows again i checked the fuel pump and seems


Check exactly when you do have a blown fuse as you are driving and in turning or as you driving normally. Also check the wires between E.C.M and Engine. The fuel Supply cuts off surely as soon as the E.C.M Fuse is blown because the fuel supply is going through the E .C. M.
