It's a speed sensor switch on the car that needs to be replaced. I don't know where the first answer is coming from. I'm not aware of any switch regarding the speed sensors, maybe I'm tired. I would suspect a problem in the electrcial system- battery, alternator being the most probable. answer speed sensor will not shut down ans engine nor will it prevent it from cranking or starting. sounds like an electrical problem to me could even be your ignition switch most likely in your computer if it was battery anew battery will fix it also a a bad battery will affect your computer alternator will not stop it from cranking
Does it crank faster than normal? perhaps timing chain Check for fuel Check for spark
I put a new crank sensor in it, and now it runs great!
When you crank it? What are you driving a Model T Ford?
crank position sensor
Check the cars ignition coil and crank sensor. Either of these could be overheating and causing the car to not start until it sits for a while.
Ran out of gas, failed alternator, crank sensor, cam sensor, PCM, timing belt, ignition coil, fuel pump, broken wiring,
Crank angle sensor
It will not stay running with out a crank sensor.
out of fuel, bad alternator/battery, mechanical frailer. need more info., does it crank? fuel level? any lights on dash board when car shut off?
no no no my crank sensor when out on my truck ar 95k now i have 125k and she is still running good
Happened to me .. it was the crank sensor. Pretty inexpensive to fix
if it backfires when driving most crank sensors cause this
possibly your crankshaft sensor or ignition control module
When this happened on my 1999 ml 320, it was the crank shaft positioning sensor. After replacement-problem solved.
diagnose starting system. chances are its there
to crank the engine and then function as a capacitor for unused electrical energy when the alternator is running
My 90 lesabre did the same thing. When it cut off after driving I sprayed water on the crank sensor and it started right back up. A buick mechanic told me to do this and this is how I found out the crank sensor was bad!
antifreeze is more likely to be leaking from the water pump and running down where it appears to leaking from crank pulley
i had a similar problem before,usually if your running lean it could be the fuel pump.if not fuel related then check ignition system modules sometimes overheat and cause car to shut down then come on once cooled down.
if it has a crankshaft sensor that's bad
Replace the fuel filter, and see if that helps. You may very well have a fuel pump that is failing.
