Dies while driving. Mechanic's...

Dies while driving.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2016 Transi connect

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

No. It's in the body shop cause it died and lost all power to the PS an PB and loses control and hit another car.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It only occurs when my wife is driving the car alone.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I would have the fault codes checked/read out to see what codes are set with this issue here.If any codes are set this will help to locate and repair this fault.If the issue is that it stalls out while driving but she still had all electrical power and the issue acted only as if the engine dies out this may be a fault with the crank position sensor itself.A crank sensor acting up can be a common cause for this type of fault here.If you can get the codes checked and post the code info here this will help just let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
