Question about 1991 Lexus LS 400

1 Answer

91 ls400 car runs 15 minutes and shuts down when warm. no pressure from radiator cap and battery keeps dying

Car cranks and runs. after 15-20 minutes the car shuts off and wont start for a few hours. takes awhile to start after cranking. so far it has a new fuel pump and filter, timing belt, tune up, coolant temp sensor, new radiator cap, ignition coils. was also leaking from the front driver side of car but it stopped. not sure what it was or from where.

Why car wont crank, but can smell gas


IT IS LOOKS LIKE A FUEL PRESSURE LEAKING INSIDE THE ENGINE OR DEFECTIVE FUEL INJECTOR LEAKING . TRY DISCONNECTING THE FUEL PUMP RELAY. AND CRANK THE ENGINE IF ALWAYS CRANK WITH OUT OF FUEL (CRANK WITHOUT START) YOU HAVE FUEL LEAK INSIDE THE ENGINE
REMOVE THE INJECTORS RAIL UP EVERYTHING CONNECTED,PUT BACK THE FUEL PUMP RELAY TURN THE SWITCH ON AND FIND WICH ONE IS LEAKING. (GASOLINE IS FLAMMABLE TAKE CARE)

Engine dies while idling, then car won't start for a few minutes


One possibility is a blocked fuel line or filter. It basically runs out of fuel and you have to wait for it to come through slowly. The other possibility is the ignition system is losing spark as something heats up. You have to wait until it's cooled down before it runs again.

2002 malibu wont start


check for a bad crank sensor for this controls the timing of crank shaft. and sends info to pcm. it will cause no spark or pulse at injectors.the engine may start but cut out in a few minutes or seconds, of operation. have the car scanned for the problem code, if no scanner, any auto parts store will scan for free. good luck !!

My car is leaking coolant. Also after it runs for awhile the idle gets low and then shuts off. Sometimes it cranks back on but shuts off again until it cools. Whats the problem?


my 2001 catera just had the same problem i had the crank sensor replaced car wont die so far no problems starting but it has a antifreeze leak in the bottom seal of the engine. I have heard this is due to the dexcool that the manufacture decided was better than reg antifreeze and the repair bill for the labor is crazy still havent changed the bottom seal yet
