If your car is cutting off at when u stop change your plugs and plug wires out. If this doesn't stop the problem change out the mass airflow sinsor. thanks and good luck!


What is less expensive changing a bunch of parts (and possiblily installing a defective part) or taking it to an independent garage and have them troubleshoot it and replace the right part?


My car kept stalling out in traffic and when I called AAA they came and Checked and told me the O2 sensor holder had broken so the sensor was hanging loose; they attached it with a twist tie! Worked like a charm ever since and the twist tie is still there!

1995 E350 diesel Engine shuts down intermittently. On The 7.3 what causes the engine to shut off when you turn the key to the off position?

The reason the engine shuts off intermittently is probably a crank position sensor, this is an electronic part which mounts on the front of the engine. When this goes bad the engine will sometimes just not work, or will work sometimes but then just dies. Fuel shut off is what happens when you turn the key off. The power to the fuel pump is cut which ends fuel flow to the engine.
