I have had the same problem with my 93 century. The mechanic says it is the soleniod for the clutch/ torque converter. It has an automatic transmission. Hope this helps

Car stalls and then sipts and supters when trying to restart and smokes


No the computer not going bad. The blue smoke is oil burning in the combustion chamber. The cause of this is most likely caused by worn piston rings. The way vehicle is running cause probably is do to loose of compression.

Go out in AM, car is cold, starts and runs fine. Drive short distance, stop and restart, runs fine, idles fine. Drive about 8 miles at 50-55 mph, pull up at a red light, when speed gets down to ~25-30...


The EGR valve is unserviceable which causes a bad or insufficient fuel control for em-missions......Hope this helps you out........EGR valves are not very expensive.

Randon stall, no start


If it is the 2.5 v6 , you most likely need the distributor replaced. If it is the 2.4l cam and crank sensors would be most likely cause.

Car shuts off while driving. usually while its still moving, I can put it in neutral and restart. In the beginning, it only happened when I hit a bump in the road. Now it just happens.


I had a similar problem. When I was driving on highway with 70 mph, the car suddenly stalled everything went off. I managed to get off the road then I tried to start the car, it did not start. After 5 minutes I tried again and it started running but after several hours it stopped while driving again. Took it to the dealer, had the ignition switch changed and it solved the problem. Costed $300. ( There is also a recall on all 99 Acuras for the switch. Mine had been replaced so they did not treat it as a recall. If yours was never replaced you can have it replaced for free)
