Because it's in park.
Depends. An older Diesel is likely to keep running. A modern, with a full set of electronic engine diagnostic might not.
A coolant leak while the engine is running is likely in the water return hoses. The vehicle can be standing still and in park, but with the engine running the fluids are still being pushed through the system to keep the engine cool. The water return lines generally run from the top left of the radiator when you are standing at the front of the car looking at the engine. Any leak in that system will likely not continue once the engine is stopped as the fluid no longer is pushed through the system.
If the engine is running and the alternator is good. If the engine is not running, no.
Get engine running. While the engine is running disconect the POSITIVE termninal from the battery. If the engine dies, the Alterntor is bad.
No , just when the engine is running
Check to see if engine is getting fuel and spark
The alternator - it provides a charge to the battery while the engine is running.
It can be a leaking injector that floods the engine when it isn't running. GoodluckJoe They asked about a problem that occurs AFTER it's been running a while...not after it's been sitting, with a pressurized Fuel line.
engine is running lean while eccelerating
You can connect most external UBS, firewire, and eSATA drives while the computer is still running.
Yes (, just be sure the engine is not running) .
Oil sputter is going to be a normal thing if the oil cap is not on while the engine is running. The engine should never be run with the oil cap open. The engine actually has less compression when the oil cap is open, and this could hurt the engine.
If the check engine light is flashing with the engine running , that means a spark plug misfire has been detected
Try applying parking brake
Yes, and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running can severely damage the computers
Generally when the engine is hot or the AC is on.
You've run out of fuel...
Is the engine running ? no
Crank angle sensor
you probally have a ground wire off
