Possible fuel filter, fuel pump sock fuel pump, Ignition module are the tops off the top of my head.
Could be many reasons, so check obvious ones first, such as; worn spark plugs, vacuum leak - listen for hissing noises and check visually all hoses, idle speed to low- check AIC valve (try tapping on it, they often get stuck), Impurities in gas- add a fuel additive, Make sure gas cap is tight and...
White smoke from the exhaust means two things; excessively rich fuel mixture, or coolant is being burned in the engine. Being that the smoke comes out after 15-20 minutes, the problem is probably an internal coolant leak, allowing coolant to be burned by the engine.

Why does my 2002 Chevy venture van run then stall and after it sits for a while it starts back up it does this lots?
To start with, you will have to determine if it loses spark or fuel when it quits. With GM's track record with fuel pumps, I would suspect a faulty fuel pump.
It could be any of a number of problems, including but not limited to electrical problems with the start and the final run of the car.
I think it is the massive pressure of the water being let out at such fast speed that it makes a squealing noise

What causes rough idle after your car has set at an idle for 10 to 15 minutes and then dies and will start back up in about 20 minutes?
There is not much information here because different automobiles can the same symptom with a totally different cause. Giving it my best guest I would say that you have a leaking fuel pressure regulator the engine can handle the extra fuel when driving but run much too rich when idling.
If it takes 90 minutes to wash 20 vehicles at a car wash. how many minutes does it take to wash 5 vehicles?

Look at the fuel filter. May also be a bad fuel pump. Is it showing any codes?
I would check the ignition system. Warmed engine stalls can be caused by a failing ignition coil or coil pack. Pull a plug wire, crank over the engine, and evaluate the color of the spark with engine cold and engine hot. Snappy blue at cold and weak yellow (or none) at hot and it's time for a fre...

1993 Mazda Protege you have just started has intermittent stalling issues with the car sounds as if it is not getting gas then it sits after about 10 mins and fires up It stalled on after stopping?
I have a '93 Protege DX that was having this same problem. I found that if you pull the top off the airbox and clean the sensor inside the problem goes away. Also make sure that the airbox and all lines coming from it are secure and have no leaks.
There would be a spark plug loose n it wiggled and it got back into place and started back up
Taking this question off the cuff: 1) If the "Starter" will not engage, just makes a click noise, or turns over very slowly (sometimes disengaging) - then the power to the starter is no good; this could mean bad battery cables, bad grounds (oil on the starter), a bad solenoid, a bad 'start wire' ...
A plugged up fuel filter, a faulty fuel pump, more info like the year, make and model would help.
Check to see if your emergency brake is applied. If it was and you released it it could still be stuck on. Try rocking the car back and forth between drive and reverse, this may release the stuck brake. Another possibility could be you have a leak in the transmission and most of the trans fluid l...

Try checking the car manual or diagram at the fuse box and make sure it's got the proper fuse amp rating.. if someone replaced it with a wrong type, the wiring may be over heating from too many amps going thru it. Also get ahold of a wiring diagram and check the grounds.
Because when your car runs out of gas there is no more gas in the fuel lines to run the motor so when you refuel it then start it there is nothing there to keep it running. The gas have to be pumped out of the tank and into the motor.
Could be, contaminated fuel (water),plugged up/dirty fuel filter,faulty fuel pump,faulty fuel pressure regulator.If the check engine light has illuminated, investigate the codes. The codes may give you a clue.
If the fuel pump isn't supplying enough fuel to the engine, or if the air/fuel mixture is too lean, the engine doesn't produce enough combustion in the power cycle to stay running, and will stall.A faulty fuel pump or incorrect timing can cause this.If the engine is over-fuelling, that can cause ...

What causes a car to run rough after it sits then run smooth after you let it run awhile It does this in the morning and sounds like rubbing sound when you make a right turn?
The only way to find out is to take it to a mechanic who has an engine analyzer. The rubbing could be caused by a loose mudshield (or a dozen other things). For rubbing sounds, you might want to check the clearance inside the wheel wells when fully turned to the right. (Possible tire contact with...

just buy a remote start for it -- trust me -- it will save you grief in the long run. Your key is likely not being read because of the amount of use in the ignition, the remote start simulates the resistor in your key to the security system so it can remote start the car. I just use the remote st...
Why would a perfectly running 1992 Dakota truck stall when driving after setting for few minutes it starts back up the computer has been replaced and problem still exist have replaced sensors HELP?
I would check the CKP or Crankshaft Position Sensor first. The older ones had a history of failing when hot. The best way to check is to monitor the signal with a scope and see if the signal starts to break up as it heats.
You may want to check your ignition module. When these go bad, they usually act up when they're hot. It should be on your distributor and if you take it in to advance they should be able to check it for free!Better yet, some cars have an idle air control valve that gets stuck because of carbon bu...
Car engines quit because of a variety if issues around air flow, fuel or mechanics.Some common reasons for motor vehicle stalls include: A fuel mixture that isn't rich enough (this is usually the cause of cold stalling and intermittent stalling) A faulty fuel pump, alternator or EGR valve.
When the EGR valve is clogged or dirty, as they are prone to, it may not function properly causing the engine idle rough, stall at idle speeds, cause the car to get poor fuel mileage, or emit a strong smell of fuel due to excess hydrocarbons which also results in failing emissions tests.
My car refuses to keep running it starts fine and will run for about 10 minutes then it will sputter and die the car starts back just fine but will only run for 2-3 minutes at a time afterwards?
Sounds like a fuel problem. First change the fuel filter. If the problem presists after this, look at other areas such as the fuel pump, fuel pressure regualator, etc.
Could you help me I bought a used car for daughter to drive to college-two days later the car jerking so bad when You first drive it then stops jerking after 5 miles the motor gets really hot?
There is probably more than one problem here. What type of car, manual or automatic, millage. Reasonable acceleration with the jerking or poor. It is going to take a bit more information to start to figure a possible answer.
There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three. The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel. Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall. Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.
I have a 95 galant that would just quit running at a stop or even driving it would just loose all electrical power. It turned out to be the cheap alarm system they put in it. when i removed the alarm it quit having the problem.
check your idle controle moter. it is probably crudded up or not wotking.
The problem started happening 3 days ago. The car runs fine in town (I live in a fairly small town,) but when it's been running for around 10-15 minutes, it cuts power to the engine. After cooling down for about 10 minutes, it starts back up and runs for about the same amount of time. A friend of...

Why would my antifreeze become low causing my lightto come on after it has been filled two days ago?
There must be a leak somewhere; check the radiator and the hoses for signs of antifreeze leaking out. If the car has been running for a while, look for any signs of steam rising up from the engine area, this may be your leak. Careful not to get burned touching any hot parts.
Use any name brand gasoline treatment then top off with fresh gasoline and you'll be fine.
What causes my brand new mazda3's engine to almost stall after starting up the car but then regains the rpm and sometimes when i start the engine shakes more than usual. It all happens randomly?
sounds like the idle (the speed at which the pistons in the engine are moving when it is just sitting there) may be set too low.
could be your ignition coil cutting out when it gets hot see if you have spark at the plugs when this happens
Your powerstroke will not cold start but once you finally do get it to start it will run very raged then after about 20 minutes it will clean up and run desent?

In todays automobiles there are many sensors that govern amung other things, how the car will shift. There is a transmission control module, and if the o2 sensor(s) are defective this will cause erratic shifting. Lastly 20 miles per hour is when you are shifting into second gear. Perhaps the serv...
A few more questions before I can give you a better answer -a. does your car have fuel injection or a carburetor? (If you aren't sure: do you have to warm it up and or pump the gas to start it? If so, it's got a carburetor.)b. Under what conditions do you have the problem? (Walk me thru a typical...
If you nicked the oil pan it could cause it to smoke from engine area. Is the smoke coming from the exhaust or engine bay? If exhaust, then I highly doubt it was caused by the curb incident.
It should be fine, but you will need to drain the oil out to the correct level on the dipstick.
You will need to clear out all the muck and grime which could have been accumulated in the fuel tank, gas lines and even the intake manifold.

Low on antifreeze/antifreeze leak...loosenut...www.ceriousproductions.com
You provide limited information but at first glance it sounds like a problem with engine timing (perhaps spark plugs). I would take the car to a mechanic for diagnosis.
bad fuel, water in the sytem?It could be a variety of things.... first and easiest explaination that comes to mind is that if you seem to gain power under load.. it could just be the natural way that the turbocharger works... the higher the RPM, the more exhaust gas leaves the combustion chambers...
Just changed the oil in my 03 tj and since then I've been getting valve ticking on and off. What should i do?

What is wrong with the car when after sitting for 5 hours without being used it has a hard time starting?
I would guess the battery. If your radio, air, etc will still work and the engine will just not turn, it may be your starter
Why does your 2002 grand prix se not start after you shut it off but starts after you wait 5 to 10 minutes?
No guarantee on this, but I'm betting it's due to the security system and a damaged or incorrect ignition key being used. I suggest you read your owners manual and look for information on the ignition key and security system. According to the owners manual for my 95 Grand Prix the timer is set to...
