Car Cuts Off While Driving.
At Random Times My Car Just Stops Accelerating ,
Sometimes It Shoots And Sometimes It Doesn't .
When It Doesn't Shoot Off The Car Engine Cuts Off
, But The Dash Lights And The Radio Is Still On I
Would Have To Pull Over Put The Car In Park And
Start It Back Up When It Starts Up It Starts Up Like
Nothing Ever Happened. What's Wrong With My
possibly a throttle position sensor. there are lots of youtube videos on how to do this test. always test before replacing parts.
BTW, have you scanned the computer for engine codes? there is a good video by a named richpin. it is on youtube. search "How to scan Toyota obd1 codes" . really easy, just follow his instructions.
I agree. Likely throttle positioning sensor (TPS). Maybe a crank positioning sensor starting to go out. Do test all theories.
The Check Engine Light Doesn't Stay On It Cuts Off When I Start It Back Up
My sisters Chevy co version van is doing the same thing. It has been put on a scan tool and has been verified to be a TPS. It dies when RPM's fall to near idle speed and always starts back up, but sometimes won't stay running unless you use 2 feet on the pedals to get going.
