My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

92' Buick LeSabre is stalling on me when driving. Now won't start.


The first thing that must be done here is to have the electronic engine control computer scanned for fault codes, this is called an OBD1 fault code test. The dealer or a well equipped shop can do the testing and diagnosis of the problem for you.

Intermittenly wouldnt start for 6 years. would start while cycling the key until it started now it shutoff while driving now wont start after cycling the as few hundred times


the problem may be a bad ignition switch. 50% of the time the switch goes bad and then no spark! to starter. the swich will cause system wide problems. will not stay running and stall out. when a switch fails, power to battery will be cut off, this is what causes the stalling.

My 2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.8L stalls when stopped at a traffic light. Turns on just fine. Took it a while back to my local Pepboys and they said nothing was wrong with it. And it is still doing the same...


try your throttle adjustments or idle control sensor. should be on throttle body. unplug and replug random connections near that area while its running and see what makes a difference. also try checking exaust for restrictions in converter. feel for poor exaust coming out of muffler with your hand

Geo metro 97. Runs great for a day then wont start the next


Your timing belt is worn out. Some days it runs good because the cogs are lined up. The next time you start it, it maybe backfires just a touch, and it's out of time. Today, it's really out. Or maybe even broken.

Car occasional stalls at slow speeds


The problem may be inexpensive to fix but difficult to diagnose. My recommendation is to go to a garage and have it put on a machine to get a diagnosis. This will be money well spent as stalling at low speeds in traffic is dangerous.
