Q: Car stalls while driving, and won't start up for 15-20 minutes.

asked by on

Car stalls while driving, and won't start up for 15-20 minutes. I took it to the dealership, they replaced the main relay, the ignition switch, spark plugs and ignition coils. Still have the same problem, car stalls after about 30 minutes of driving, electrical stays on, but looses power and dies. After it die's, it take 10-20 minutes to start back up and problem continues.

Any suggestions?? Dealership was no help at all!

My car has 147 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your car was built right on the cusp of the period when Honda products were transitioning to distributor-less ignition. If it is a model that had a distributor, then that is the first place I would look for trouble. The old distributors had a magnetic pickup coil that served as a camshaft position sensor and that coil would fail when it reached a certain temperature. When it cooled back down, it would function again. If your car has distributor-less ignition, then the problem may exist in the crankshaft or camshaft position sensor or in the igniter module. All three are subject to the same kind of temperature related breakdown. The only way to properly diagnose this car is by driving it until it fails, and then troubleshooting it right on the spot with a scope. By contacting Your Mechanic you can have a technician come to your home or office and diagnose the car for you and offer a solution.

Q: Rattling under the vehicle when placed in gear.

It seems like the engine/transmission are moving slightly on their mounts or they are touching some other part of the car when you put it in gear. The normal vibration of the engine may also cause a bracket or heat...

Q: My car chokes on start up, sometimes it turns on fine but other times it will choke or even turn completely off.

The intermittent engine stalling may be the result of a dirty or faulty idle air control valve. This could also be caused by a leaking or faulty fuel pressure regulator, which is delivering too much fuel or not enough fuel....

Q: Van turns over but wont crank

Hi there. Assuming, the engine ran fine prior to replacing the "front?" crankshaft seal, leads me to believe the reassembly process was incorrectly performed. Rechecking timing marks and correcting the alignment may resolve the no start condition. It would be...
