You may also want to look at the more obvious choices, when is the last time you charge the fuel filter, etc. Does it do it at cruising speed or just when you need more gas during accel.

3zzfe vvti, engine overhauled, now have trouble idling. Engine starts but fuel get cut of after a few seconds.

run fault codes to find which sensors have not been installed correctly or are defective. Possible cam/crank position sensor faulty. It is very easy to miss a connection or incorrectly put a connection together.

I have a 2003 Kia sedona ran out of igas now wont start the code I get say crank posistioning sensor will that cut or cause the fuel pump not to work cause I get no humming from it the code is p0335

No this does not affect the fuel pump. It will affect the spark though. Hit the gas tank in the center a few times. If it starts then replace the fuel pump. Unfortunetly pumps with a few yaers on them will die when ran out of gas. If it doesn't start pull one of the spark plug wires, insert a screwdriver and put it close to the engine. crank the engine and watch for a spark. if there is no spark then replace the crank shaft sensor. before you replace the fuel pump.

2005 Ford explorere will not start cranks but will not turn over, have brought new battery evrything

There are a number of things that could be wrong 1rst make sure that you have fuel getting to the injectors turn the key to the on posistion and listen for the fuel pump engaging it will sound like a pump or small motor humming if you dont hear that then it means that your fuel pump is not running if this is the case check your fuses and the relay for the fuel pump they are marked in the fuse panel if the pump is running then i would make sure that i had spark make sure that the coil is firing if you have spark then i would try maybe changing my tps(throttle posistion sensor) or the crank sensor or the cam posistion sensor if you know someone with a scanner it would be nice to let them plug it in to read any codes that may be stored tis will help in not just randomly changing parts but this is to gove you an idea as where to start. hope this provides ypu with some insight.

Car is hesitating have error code p1391 check engine light is on what does this code mean it is not in the book I just put a crank posistion sensor and that fixed it ,now it is doing it again only worse...

p1391 is intermitant loss of signal from crank sensor and cam sensor--change sensors!! change cam sensor first. good luck!! then try it, if still same way. change crank sensor.

Truck is jumping and the code is P0340 crankshaft sensor what caused this?

Sounds like the sensor is getting to completely fail. It works off the rotation of your crankshaft. If the sensor is going bad or goes out, the sensor don't detect what position the crank is in and therefore it will start cutting out and shortly cut off because the sensor don;t detect the reference point on the crank.

Crankshaft posistion sensor or ignition control module?

1) do you have a Check Engine Light On while running? If so find out what the code is
2) these engines are known for their CPS going can be tested on the car with a volt meter and turning the engine, but it isnt easy....I would have to err in the direction of changing the Crank Position Sensor.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

1996 BMW i 328 won't start

hello, check for a damage crank position sensor this sensor sends the singnal to the dme (digital motor electronics ) to inject fuel and pulse the ing coils and will also start the fuel pump when it see a rpm above 500 this is a good tell sing if you crank the engine and the rpm does not jump there is a good chance that the crank posistion sensor is bad / the battery and engine light will be on untill the engine strarts
