Q: Engine dies after starting

asked by on February 08, 2016

The engine dies after starting.

There are a couple possible causes of your engine starting issues: the camshaft sensor, or the fuel pump. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, check your vehicle out to diagnose the cause of your stalling engine.
