engine dies and wont restart afterdriving apx. 20 min. after setting will restart replaced fuel pump still has problem
car just dies while driving...without any warning!!!
haven't had it diagnosised yet.
My car keeps cutting off while I'm driving and then will crank but will not start up after I wait about 20 mins it starts right up
The sensor has been on for some time and they told me it was the ignition coil and that eventually it would
leave me stranded. 6 months later its been ok... until a couple of weeks ago. Twice it has shut off while
driving and idling has gotten super rough. Today, it kept cranking and
wouldn't turn over. Eventually it did and it was a rough ride.
My engine fails to start and then when it does it idles roughly, runs roughly all the time. Sounds like the engine is "skipping"
STALLS WHEN COMING TO STOP UNLESS I PUT IN NEUTRAL, AND INCREASE FUEL WHILE BRAKING
engine will crank yet wont start and the check engine light stays on due to throttle body issues
Engine will crank but not start until the third or more tries. It has died a few times after driving about 3/4 mile at a stoplight.
Apparently there is a recall still in affect for the DIC, replaced by dealership and problem solved.
engine warning light came on. code said to replace direct ignition coil. Replaced and ran fine for a few days, now have the same problem again, only worse
Car stops while driving or cranks but doesnt start.
Three ignition cassette failures: 1) sudden failure without warning @ highway speeds (54K); 2) intermittent misfires and elective replacement (200K); 3) sudden failure @highway speeds with a single misfire 1 minute prior (241K)
Codes P1312 and P1334. Replace DI
Rough idle,dies while driving,sometimes won't start, engine light stays on and or flashes.
Stalls at times or turns over but will not start
Engine died while driving
My 2001 Saab 9.5 will simply just stop running sometimes while driving on freeway at freeway speeds. I have had the dic replaced the ignition censor all the spark plugs and it worked fine for about 2 weeks but now it's doing the same thing and it seems,that the battery is draining power fast.
Car died will srart but won't crank
Well driving it will stop at a signal it will not start for at least two hours after that it starts
car like to putter out in idle if I dont put it in neutral, also after refueling needs to have engine revved for a while or it will stall when I put into drive.
