A bad crankshaft sensor can have several symptoms. The engine could stall, backfire, be sluggish or not run at all.
Why would it stall or almost stall in Reverse but not in Drive? How long since it's received a tune-up and thorough check-up? How is the compression?
Because reverse is a lower ratio gear than drive and puts less load on the engine.
need to know year make and model
I replaced the crank sensor and the cam pick up that is under the distributor cap and still the wrangler wants to stall or back fires and bucks at 1200 to 2000 RPM when accelerating
check your coil
your engine will stall. When you try to restart the engine, it will stutter and stall again.
It is most likely your oxygen sensor
There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.
The engine isn't receiving the correct amount of fuel which will stall the motor. Also if the oxygen censor isn't working properly then the motor will stall.
I really doubt it's the tranny making your car stall, it's either carburetor problems or the idle is set too low.
does my 1996 pontiac ga stall out in park
If the check engine light is on...might be a dirty EGR valve.
my jeep wrangler carburator was removed by my mechanic and since then, the carburator has been malfunctioning. I even bought and fit a refurbished carburator and still rpoblem of slow running persist. Problem is, engine runs and stall, and very hard starting
I would guess that you have a cooling problem...if the engine runs too hot the fuel can boil causing a stall like you indicated .
because your a failure and you obviously can't drive!
out of fuel
If the oil is low in your car, it can eventually cause your car to stall and not start. It can also kill your engine.
Someone has to pick up the rear end and run with it, starting your engine when he drops it. (and if you spin out and stall you lose the race )
The thermostat control engine temperature. If it fails the engine can run hot or cold - that would happen long before over-heating caused the engine to stall.
Your Jeep Wrangler is not getting the proper amount of gas if it stalling when you come to a complete stop. This could be your fuel pump, fuel lines, or the intakes.
a major part of an automatic transmission... A torque converter is what couples the engine to the transmission. It acts a little bit like a clutch and allow the engine to drive the transmission. At slow engine speeds, like at idle, it slips so the engine will not stall while the transmission is in gear. As engine speed (RPM) increases it allows the engine to drive the transmission. This is just the basic idea of what a torque converter does.
it run down
You can make a motor stronger by always checking the engine, checking the oil, and brake light functions. Makes sure that you drive safely and do not stall it.
