There's a solinoid in the transmission.Suggest to check that first. Turn on interior lights. Start engine. If the lights go out when the engine stalls, you have a bad ignition switch.

There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.

It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.

Sounds like it is not charging, have the charging system tested, it may be the alternator at fault.

the idle jet in the carb is blocked and needs to be cleaned out and reset

A bad relay switch could be the culprit if dash lights remain on after engine starts in a Toyota. Cold weather can also cause these lights to stay on after the engine starts.

This can be a number of things. What comes to mind first is, if this is an A/T you may have a bad lock-up torque converter, or the solenoid is stuck. If the engine runs and idles great until you put it in drive, this would be my guess.

It could have something to do with your oxygen/air flow sensor

bad fuel pump, you dont have enough pressure to stay alive.

It has a vacuum leak or the IAC is faulty.

you ether get gas or your belly starts to digest

Because its a Chevy corsica not a ford corsica!!!!!

My 1998 E320 did this. Dealer charged me $1,100 for the fuel pump and filter.

I have run into this before on other makes of cars and it was the altenator. If you can get the car to a parts house like auto zone they can sometimes test them for you for free.

They died in a car accident shortly before the book starts.

Starts the engine. Turns on lights and radio.

I've had this happen to me years ago. You can have an auto parts store test your alternator and hope that's it. But in my case, it was a warped head.

Sounds like the alternator and eventually it wont start back up for you

My 1998 E320 did this and it was the fuel pump. The dealer also replaced the filter and it was $1,100.
