My engine will stall while driving and it will not start for another 20-30 minutes and it starts again drives another 2-3 miles and it will stall again. What can I do
I just bought bronco and first week it cranked every time, then after putting it in shop to have a couple leaks fixed it started this. Actually cut off on way home from shop so I thought it was something they had done. Would not re-crank at first, finally got it started and took it back by shop and they tried to tell me it was related to an aftermarket anti-theft system that was causing it. It cranks most times but sometimes will not crank and I can usually come back later and crank it. It has cut off on me going down the road 3x in past week, cranked right back up 1 of the times but the other 2 it took 15-20 minutes. How to fix? How much should I expect it to cost me to have it fixed?
Bronco will just "die" while going down the road. After sitting for a while, it will start back up. Usually has not happened in problem traffic. I have not replaced the ignition module yet. I found this site while searching for a solution to my problem.
Starts fine in morning. Drive 4-5 miles, stalls. Will restart after about 1 hour. Fuel pump works. I hear it run when I cycle the key.
Starts, dives a little and the will stall out when you come to a stop. Sometimes will restart in 20-30 mins, but will stall again. Just spent >500 to fix but still happened again today.
Quits when it rains, have to let it dry out
Sometimes it would start and sometimes it wouldn't. Checked everything, had the cylinder replaced, and other electrical do dads before finally installing a push button starter. Works good now.
