This has done it to me a few times, and I bet if you look really hard there is a sliver of paper that is blocking an optical coupler or has worked itself into a microswitch, or has wedged it in the wrong position. Somehow some safety feature is "protecting" you, but in the wrong way. Whenever there is a screwup go right back to the very last place you were working, and it is usually right there.

My 2001 Cadillc Deville Shuts off while driving but starts up again with no problm. then after few miles it shuts off again then i just turn it back on

It could be alot of things. A bad module in the distributor, a coil going, a MAP sensor or IAC sensor. Could be a bad distributor cap. Can tell without actually being there. Do you get a service engine soon light when it is running?

If you heard a pop then your belt probably fell off. There is a belt safety switch that wont allow the dryer to turn on if the belt is not attached

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I note that your question was 3 months ago. I answered a current post today that had your exact same symptoms. Your post was revealed after I answered the current post. Had I seen your post 90 days ago I would have responded with the same answer as follows:

There is a low oil level sensor on the opposite side of the engine as the oil fill / dipstick. The next time that your presure washer acts up disconnect ONE wire to the oil level sensor. On pressure washers mose engines have the oil level sensor removed for just this reason. You tip the engine to move the power washer and you can not start it or.. if you move it with the unit running the oil level sensor kills the ignition. Just make sure that anytime you are going to use it that you ensure the oil level is properly serviced. (Each use)

There is yet another possibility. Debris in the bottom of the fuel bowl will draft directly into the lower fuel jet (Located inthe bowl nut area) with a tip of the unit and clog the fuel nozzle. You can prove you have a fuel problem simply by adding gas to the carb throat with the air filter removed. If you get a brief start... you have a fuel not a spark problem. Turn off the fuel selector... remove the fuel float bowl nut and drop the float bowl. Use carb cleaner in the threaded area to clean out the orifice in the body of the carb and then remove the debris from the float bowl. CLEAN the bowl nut also.

Use a spray can lid for the next step under the float bowl area.
Open the fuel selector and gently lift the float to level. Fuel must shut off when near level and re-start fuel flow as you lower the float. The spray paint can lid should fill up in 8 seconds or less. If you have poor fuel flow start looking at the bottom of the gas tank or an inline fuel filter as the problem. Some fuel selectors have tiny bowls under the fuel selector lever. Make sure to clean this out also if you have one.

Turn off the fuel selector. Reinstall the float bowl making sure the rubber bowl gasket is fitted properly. Fuel selector ON... leak test. Then test start the unit and see if your symptom is gone.
One more possibility. Your engine has and E-Z start valve that is supposed to be a compression relief. If this is sitcking / partially open ect.. it can make it hard to start your engine.

I really think you have a low oil level sensor issue that is grounding out the spark because it cycles to ground when you move the unit and is not... sensing the oil level properly after you move the unit. I clean oil level sensors with carb cleaner. You can wake up about 75% of them just by cleaning them off internally through the 2 side holes cleaning up to the contact area on the top of the sensor.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

the sensors are mounted at each wheel. wheel removal is probably not necessary. get under the car and look where the axle meets the wheel. you should see a steel ring mounted around the axle with teeth on it like a gear. mounted in that area is the speed sensor. there will be a wire attached to it. with sensor cleaner, spray each sensor and clean with a small brush. spray again.

Sensor not reading problem is due there is some obstruct between sensor and projected light beam. Check any disturbance are there and clean the sensors. Cleaning work is done by the technical persons only since it is sensitive area. Try another method also by changing the TV aspect ratio is 16:9 and then select auto convergence method. This is the one chance is there before you call the technical person
