If no spark, then could be crank sensor etc. A lot of the time, your car won’t suddenly die on you and will show symptoms before it dies while driving.
The oscillating idle sounds almost like an air leak issue.i would look at a/f correction on an ap to see what that is doing.
Car stalls while driving and wont start. When i had a big air leak it swung all over the place. Continue reading car stalls while driving won’t start. Also, the engine may stall at idle when cold.
If you have a problem with the ignition switch, your car might stall because the internal contacts are worn out. Very late but for anyone else with this problem. Spray a decent amount of it into the intake air tube.
Take it to auto zone they have the best and most accurate test module for the car. My car has 185000 miles. If your cel is on, you may get trouble codes p0171, p0174 or p0300.
Depending on your particular model, you may also want to take a look at the engine speed sensor for a loose wire or bad sensor, especially if you've noticed a misfire while driving. Lawn mower won't start fuel, ignition and compression I was driving and all of a sudden when i hit the gas there was nothing there i got it where i was going and then it died while i was still driving we have not been able to get it to start since it does crank but does not start.
This is quite a common issue. Put the tube back into place and crank the engine. The car battery is the rechargeable battery that supplies the necessary electrical current to a motor vehicle, with the main purpose to feed the starter, which in turn powers and starts the engine to run your car.
It wouldn't start immediately and sometimes just waiting an hour or 2 and trying again made it start and drivable for a few minutes again. This leads to voltage loss due to heat and hard vibrations. There will be no timing signal going to the computer and this will cause the vehicle.
If it starts and shuts off, then your problem has to be a fuel delivery issue of some sort. The ignition switch is the main gate that connects the current coming from the battery to the car accessories and starter for the car to start. Some of them will depend on the model of the car you are driving.
Issues with air, spark, or fuel supply are by far the most common reasons for your car to stall while you’re driving it, but there are also a few mechanical reasons the engine may quit on you. If your battery dies while it’s driving, it wouldn’t be able to feed electricity to a variety of important components, leading to your car shutting off while driving. The problem was the ignition coil.
A failing fuel pump is one of the faults that can cause this. Other likely problems would be the battery, alternator, battery cable, wiring harness fault, crank or camshaft position sensor. I have read that faulty crank sensor or crank position sensor usually causes the engine to cut off.
After this, when i try to start it, it makes that noise like it is trying to start but the actual ignition doesn’t happen. Car stalls while driving and wont start. After 100k miles/10+ years, my car would randomly die while driving and after replacing the ignition switch, the problem never returned.
Why did my car shut off while driving and wont start? For example, your engine needs the ignition system to create a spark to start the combustion process. If there is a problem with the electrical it will print you an error code p1298 which cover the eld ( electronic load detector) it will say high voltage output, then it will say short or distorted wire located ( probable cause) because usually it is i had a system in mine and it fried the eld.
A bad battery is one of the most common reasons why your car will stall while driving. If you have good battery power, and the starting motor works but the car won’t start, first thing is to check for fuel pressure or listen for the fuel pump to run. If it will not crank at all, try again, but with more fluid.
I used to have this occur when i drove around for a bit. Here are two of those possibilities:
