What would cause my car to just randomly shut off?


Asked by Apr 26, 2013 at 05:16 PM about the 1995 Dodge Spirit 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1995 dodge spirit randomly shuts
off while driving and then starts right
back up when I put it in park. I think
it might be the fuel pump but I'm not
sure, any advice would help, thank

If it starts back up it isn't the fuel pump something else is going on. The informatin you provided is too vague, so I suggest you take it to a local mechanic who can tell you what the issue is. Have you been keep up with maintanance and or is the CEL light on?

on your intake ususally about halfway but its in between the air filter and your throttle body should be the only sensor on there


Had (have the same issue). Tried many things. So far so good with a change of auto shutdown relay.
