Why did car lose all power when engine was still running?
All power or most power? When an engine's alternator (which is a generator for everything electrical on a vehicle) goes bad, the vehicle tends to run until the power in the battery runs out. During this process, all the electrical components (radio, lights, etc) start dimming due to the engines electrical system giving priority to the ignition system (spark plugs, ICM or Distributor, etc). (Side Note: the battery is only used to crank the engine, not to run it.)
Now if it loses all power, with the engine running, then I have no idea. There must be a major short and or quite a bit of fuses burned out.
your battery will not lose power due to your starter being bad. if you have attempted to start the engine and did this for a long period of time with out the engine or an out side source of power charging the battery, it will eventually lose power, due to working and not charging. But for the original question, no the battery will not lose power if the starter is bad. hope this helps
Why would the air conditioner and heater blower only work sometimes and when the air conditioner does work it takes power away from the engine?
If you mean why the difference in RPMs between idling and driving, the difference is due to the engine load; At idle, the engine isn't really doing much other than staying running, but under load (driving) the engine has to put its power out to the drivetrain, hence the symptomatic loss of engine speed (RPMs).
Why your car continue lose power even if they jumpstarted you when you switch it off it does not want to start?
What would cause a 91 wrangler 4 cylinder to lose fire to the engine but all accesaries still function?
Check engine light on and lose power in 2006 kia optima V6 LX I changed the gas cap still does but not all the time?
Any engine will lose RPM going up a hill, its called gravity and the engine has to overcome it. The heavier the vehicle the more RPM you lose. Thats also why transmissions have all the extra gears. Lower gear equals more pulling power and less speed, higher gear is less pulling power and more speed.
It depends on your vehicle make and year. When your engine stops, if you have power steering, you will lose the power provided from the power steering pump. You will not lose steering. You may have to apply more pressure to the steering wheel to turn but you will still be able to steer. Slowly pull off the road to the right and make sure that your vehicle is completely off the road. Your brakes…
What could cause an 88 Caprice to lose all its power instantly while driving making you pull over then be unable to restart the car when no noises were heard in the engine and the car still turns over?
Quite possibly a failed fuel pump. What you would have noticed was the engine misfiring then stalling. It happens pretty quickly and you would not hear a thing. vbd that or running out of fuel. could also be that your throttle valve cable near the carb needs to be adjusted or replaced. this would cause your car to lose power and/or delayed shifting of the the transmission, usually accompanied with a loud noise when pressing…
