Why would a car shut off within a block and not start back up for a while but will lose power every time?
Answer . \nHowdy, one of the first things I would check is the fuel filter. How old is vehicle? email@example.com

Possibly the brake light switch at the brake pedal has stayed depressed or stuck.
Overheating. Answer- The starter either has a bad solenoid or the ignition switch is not opening the connection when turned off. The only way to check that would be to d…isconnect the starter, and check for voltage when the key is turn to start and then turned off. If voltage is present all of the time, then check the same thing at the solenoid.
Perhaps the collision sensor that shuts the fuel off on impact is set too sensitive
turn the inside lights off
Why does my car shuts off randomly when i turn the steering wheel and apply the brakes the same time?
The idle is not being increased high enough. There is a bad sensor if it is a ecu driven vehicle or if its a carb motor idle needs increased.
Why would brakes get hard to press down then engine shut off Brake light and engine light came on and now the car will crank but not turn over?
Perhaps a vacuum leak, Check all hoses
i had a problem like that, Dodge van1500, and they told me a lot of solutions, i did tuneup and the only thing that works, i replace the computer, used 90.00 and problem solve…d.
the question is faulty. if a timing belt what is broken??? is jumped ??? is missing ??? is misaligned???? If it breaks yes it will not start. it usually will turn over a lot… faster as well. if misaligned or jumped making it out of time. no start to back fires when accelerating or just no power at low end speeds.
The following reasons will be applicable as per the severity: 1.Power steering pressure switch / sensor failure. 2.Low fuel level which results in air-lock in case of diesel… or engine shut-off in case of petrol. 3.The coupler of electronic control module which controls the engine management system will tends to make and break activity while turning or cornering, due to the angle of inclination of the vehicle's body.
More than likely the battery has a dead cell and needs replacing. It can also be something is on pulling power from the battery.
What would a humming noise coming from gas tank area be when the car is shut off Not running no keys just sitting in the driveway and it hums about every twenty minutes for about 5 seconds each time?
The fuel pump is not shutting off .
There are two or more faults at work here depending on the car. If your car has a relay that runs brake lights or Tail lights one or both could be bad. OR If your car has thes…e items controlled by a body control module it could be bad or with this system the computer grounds the bulbs to make them work and damage to the wires anywhere in the car can cause this. OR You have a brake light switch that keeps the brake lights on all the time AND a bad ground in the system so the Brake lights ground through the tail lights. This kind of thing is more common on per 2000 model year vehicles.
