BIG BIG engine problem HELP

Home  \  Domestic Cars  \  BIG BIG engine problem HELP

Ok i was driving a 1994 chrysler new yorker 3.5 liter v6. I was just driving regularly like 35 and then all of a sudden the engin shuts off on me for no reason. I pulled over thank god there was room. And i tryed to start it up again it started and turned off right away. I though it might of gotten overheated somehow, but on the guages temps were i waited like 5 minutes it got better, but then rpms got low to like 400 and nothing. So i got a freind to bring his car and a rope and we pulled it to my house. what can be wrong.

okay, i'm not completely sure on this one, but my friend had a problem like that, he has a ford contour but he thought it was his alternator. after he replaced the alternator, he found out that it was a fuse, that made it so the car ran off the battery instead of the alternator, so check ur fuses, thats all i know. Hope it helps

It maybe fuel related. Clogged filter or bad fuel pump.

There could be a million things wrong with it. Your best option is to probably take it into a shop.

hi, i have fixed the problem and turned out that there was almost no fuel in the tank. I put in 6 more gallons and then it starteds up after a few tryes. But when i was driving it shoed that i had 25% of fuel left in the the fuel pump broken mayey. I have cheked the fuel filter and its fine. Is this something i should be worried about or should i just have more gas in the tank.
