It sounds like your crank sensor or cam sensor are failing. When either of those two sensors overheat they will shut down the engine until they cool down

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again


This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

2000 Grand Vitara breaksdown, backfires and dies while driving after about 30 minutes. Starts again in about an hour. Changed fuel pressure regulator. Made no difference.


The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .

Try checking you belt tension. That happened to me once while I was driving. Turned out to be a broken fan belt.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Have you tried to get any codes off your computer yet? There are many things that can cause this. Is the check engine light on Ron?

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.


mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

98 Accent stalling


When it dies..check for spark. You could have a component in the ignition system failing when the car gets warm.

If you don't have spark then you might need a new ignition module. The distributor cap and rotor should be checked for traces of carbon. This would be evidence of a leaking cap.

If you get check engine codes then you do have some sensors going out of range or failing all together. P0446 is an evap code right?
Make sure your fuel cap isnt plugged up and all your evap lines are ok.
