Check the bottom of your distributor where the body of the distributor and cap come together. If there is oil there you need to replace the distributor as the oil seal has failed and oil is travelling internally up the shaft and getting on the reluctor wheel and may be causing the condition you are experiencing.

My car seems to all of a sudden shake when I accelerate and then the muffler makes a weird noise and it dies. I try to restart but will not restar...then I leave it for like 15min and then it will start....


Coil or ignition module may be getting hot and failing but the Most common cause of an engine that stalls and will not start back, but starts after it sits awhile:

Clogged catalytic converter. It lets your exhaust gasses build up backpressure and it can no longer breath. The pressure releases over time, allowing your engine to start again, only to build up the backpressure again.

sounds like it could be a coil issue after its been sitting for awhile it starts again correct? when its running the coil will warm up and if there is a small crack in it anywhere it will seperate and loose its contact therefore interupting the spark for the engine and it will die. or it could be a bad fuel pump or even cheeper yet check the fuel filter.

you need to replace the alternator, that will take care of the battery light, and dyeing when removing the cable... replace that and we will go from there on your brake light issue.

Radiator fans stay on when car gets turned off after being driven awhile


It's suppose to stay on for awhile, this cools the engine down while its just sitting. If it stays on for hours then you need to check your fan relay. Good Luck.

Car runs fine just quits


Does this have a "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light on? If so, get the codes pulled and post them back here along with the engine info. If no codes are present then it may well be a bad crankshaft sensor. I have seen many of these give intermittent problems (usually heat related) and do exactly what you have described without setting a code.

I have a 93 altima that will crank but will not start...about a couple months ago i went to my work and shut off my car. it was running fine when i shut it off.. when i came back out and started my car...


this year model is notorious for fuel related probs...check the remainder of the fuel system, injectors, and the fuel pressure regulator also verify that the fuel pump is actually running and getting the correct amount of power to the pump itself..... it may not be bad just not getting enough power
