It can be any of a number of problems. Possiblities are: Oxygen sensor, air filter, fuel filter, plugs, wires, rotor, distributor cap, throttle position sensor, MAP sensor, carburater, compression... and who knows what else without knowing more of the symptoms. If the vehicle is injected, it probably has a computer diagnostic port. If that's the case, borrow, rent or buy a code scanner and use it to find out exactly what the computer has detected. egr valve i just went through the same issue
check your camshaft sencor and your crankshaft sencor.
I have to guess at a few things but.. I am guessing because the engine has serious problem with how it is running the engine computer has increased the idle speed very high to try and keep it running. If this is the case putting it into gear will bang very hard and drop the engine speed to below what the engine control computer can keep it running. So it quits. Get the engine fixed.
Many engines have an automatic shut off when the engine becomes too hot. Once the engine cools down it may also be equipped with an automatic startup.
Be sure the cooling fans are functioning when the ac is running.
If this is a general noise, it could be the transaxle. When you are accelerating, the engine is pushing the gears, and when you let go of the pedal, the vehicle starts to shift back down. If this is an engine noise, it could be predetonation or a valve problem.
Carb.? May need to be re-built or replaced
Sounds like you have a faulty thermostat. Its nothing expensive on hard to replace.
Lack of fuel or too much fuel will make the engine stop running. Since you are able to re-start and run for a short while, the problem is probably a clogged fuel filter. You might also want to check the air filter.
You may have a faulty engine light. Or, you may have a serious problem with your car. You should take your car to a local mechanic for diagnostics.
Need to check fuel pressure and fuel filter first. I think you will find your problem there.
The timing on your truck is probley off mine had the similar problem. If you don't have i timing light, you can always do it by ear. Just turn it clockwise till your engine starts up if it starts up your close, if it stays running turn it little buy little till it purrs..
If you don't start the engine, electrical power is only sent to the fuel pump for a few seconds after turning on the key. That often makes it difficult to trace down the problem. If the engine starts, the fuel pump will remain on, but there is no need to be sending fuel to an engine that isn't running.
There is a problem with that code the player starts running into the black and runs automatically
I think your problem is either in high voltage cables or in the ignition coils. Since you have two ignition coils for 4 cylinders and missfire in one, the problem is in the cables.
I experienced this same problem before too. The security system could be the problem. The imobaliser shuts of the car if it thinks there is a problem with the ignition(if it was hotwired).
Bad engine cushions can make the engine shake. bad spark plugs cause malfunction as the car starts running.
What could be the problem when a 2002 Volvo won't stay stared
Probably a stuck solenoid.
You can do serious damage to the catalytic converter if the check engine light starts to flash.
AnswerTry on the remote, UNLOCK + LOCK + LOCK. That should do it. After the car starts, just UNLOCK + UNLOCK to unlock all doors. Once you get in (without pressing pedals), just put key in and TURN to ON. Do not turn to START or you will attempt to start an already running engine. Not all Scion tC's come with this feature though. You may need to have andafter-market one installed.orThe remote engine starter is operated by pushing the `lock` button on the keyless entry fob in a quick, three-step sequence: (1) push and release `lock` button; (2) push and release `lock` button again; (3) then push and hold `lock` button for three seconds-and the engine starts. The engine can also be stopped remotely by pushing the `unlock` button once, or by pushing and holding the lock button for two seconds or more.
It is a common problem for shevy. Usually the Fuel regulator. Or for other vehicles it could be a dirty fuel filter
It depends on what car and engine you have. Just guessing, I would check the fuel pump relay if it has one.
If the key is in the on position and the engine is not running, the fuel pump is off. If the engine is running then the fuel pump is also. During the start cycle the pump will only run for 3 seconds unless the engine starts.
