My Car Starts Then Stops Running | Wichita Auto Repair

If your car immediately starts, but stalls out, it’s time to see the Wichita auto repair techs at Tracy’s Automotive.

You had decided to take your family to the Wichita Art Museum this weekend for something different to do. However, your car refused to cooperate. It started fine, but then cut off rather than continue running. You’re not sure what the problem is.

There are a couple of reasons a car stalls out after starting. The cause, according to, can generally be tracked down by when it happens. If it happens when the engine is cold, then it’s likely a bad electric sensor. If it does it even when the engine is warm, then it’s likely a faulty electric fuel pump. Both problems happen in vehicles that have fuel injection systems.

Bad sensors are causing the car’s computer to malfunction and improperly determine the amount of fuel your engine needs. In the case of a bad electric fuel pump, the engine stops because it’s not getting enough gas to keep it running.

“A qualified mechanic can troubleshoot, diagnose and confirm the source of the problem. It is a relatively simple job to replace a faulty sensor or electric fuel pump,” says.

If you don’t have an auto repair mechanic you can trust, you need to consult the reliable auto repair experts at Tracy’s Automotive.
