Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe

I was driving it and it just died. It was not a sputter. I checked the battery termal and it is ok, fuses looked good, got fuel. it appears to me that it is electrical, it does turn over.

Sounds like it could be the fuel pump. When you turn the key to the on position, not all the way to start, do you hear the buzzing of the fuel pump? If not, that's your problem. Have someone turn the key while you tap your gas tank with your fist or a mallet. Should start up. Take it for service as this solution won't work for long!

Driving my 2006 dodge stratus 2.4 up a hill it sputtered lost power then died won't start now check engine light is on reading P0700 and P0562. I looked the codes up still don't know where to start?


This is an indication of a problem for which there is a current class action lawsuit being attempted. The p0562 is the most prevalent of the issues. It is low voltage. The other code is for the transmission and this is most likely caused from the low voltage. Now the reason for the voltage issue is because either the alternator has failed and the battery died while driving or the TIPM is bad. Check the battery and the alternator and if they are ok, then it might be the TIPM and that is not a cheap part. The TIPM is a combination fuse block and voltage regulator that is computerized. The cost of replacing the TIPM is going to be close to 1000.

If it was fuel related it would have sputtered as it ran out of gas. I think it is lack of spark caused by a failing crankshaft or camshaft position sensor.

95 Eagle Talon stalls out after driving for a while. Has new ignition coil, plugs and wires, computer and fuel pump but I've been told it has something to do with the fuel line, any help?


I have the same year and stalls out occasionally in the beginning and now I can barely drive a quarter mile. All of the parts you listed I've tested and appear ok but what I'm thinking is not fuel because it would act crazy gasping for fuel but the camshaft and crankshaft sensors. If either of these are failing then the engine stops firing and dies. Also could be the alternator or battery. If not enough charge then the car could die. Mine dies like I turned the key off (and don't think it's ignition switch) and gauges all just drop to zero still sounds like engine is sort of on until I finally coast close to stopping and then dies and oil light comes on.

Car sputtered out and died


There are some  possibilities that has to be checked in this case. 1) First of all check the voltage of the battery if its low the car will loose its power. 2) The other thing to check is the connection between battery and the starter.if the connection is loose then car will not start. 3) But if you were driving the car and in between of driving the car sputtered and stopped then this problem is related to fuel.Either their is very less fuel or there is proper fuel but there is dust in the fuel tank which got mixed with the fuel and that is got blocked in the fuel filter. 4) Get all the three things checked The fuel pump,The fuel filter and the fuel. Also check if the fuel pump is properly connected or got worn out and loose. If all the above mentioned possibilities checked out OK/perfect then its electrical fault in the car.So all the wiring connections needs to be checked. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I have a s60. we were driving and it sputtered


ok...the first thing i would look at is your battery and charging system a lot of electrical problems can stem from the root .....if this does not help than you will have to find a schematic and check out the wireing for that circuit also take a look at all the fuses good luck

Sputters then dies


Most likely a lack of fuel, check the fuel filter first.

The spark you are getting is to weak.Check and clean the wires from the coil pack.If they are ok then change the coil pack.Then the crank sensor.Hope that was helpfull.

Engine stalls while driving. Fuel deprivation?


I am having the exact same problem with my VW Touareg @60,000 miles. Two weeks ago and again today it sputters and stalls shortly after starting. I brought it into the shop and they could not reproduce the problem and said it was fine. Also, they had no ideas when I describes the problem. Anyone know what it going on? I am out of warranty.

Blown Fuses - Dead 1998 Ford Escort


Try changing the fuel filter first we always change them when servicing the fuel pump anyway,its easy and cheap,if that doesnt solve the problem you will have to perform an amperage draw test on the fuel pump to insure your not replacing a good pump. Check the fuel pump relay and inertia switch and wiring also.Although possible its unlikley the fuel pump would blow a fuse consistantly without displaying any driveability problems.There may also be another component running off the fuel pump fuse have your mechanic pull a wiring diagram to find out. Good hunting keep me informed
