Before I take the next step, a full service shop, I'd like the input of others. Okay first im very aware i have a hole in my radiator, slow oil leak, and white smoke coming from underneath engine. The question is why Is my car shutting off when I've stopped and or trying to accelerate. Before its shutting off it's jerking as well. Please help!
My car has 157878 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Engine stalling, or shutdowns, can be caused by a faulty mass airflow sensor, faulty camshaft or crankshaft position sensors, worn spark plugs, wires or defective ignition coil(s), inadequate fuel delivery or pressure (clogged fuel filter, injectors, faulty fuel pump or pump circuit), contaminated or old gasoline, defective throttle position sensor, faulty idle air control valve, leaks in the EGR system, intake vacuum leaks, and so forth. Often the issue is "limited" and thus fairly easy to resolve. If you request an engine stalling diagnostic the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you promptly.
