Hello, my name is***** you tell me if the engine will continue to run if you give it gas or does it just shut off?

it shut of any way it shut right down
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 8 months ago.

Thank you. If it will not stay running at all then it is usually caused by a failure in the MAP sensor or a large vacuum leak in the EGR valve or intake manifold. Do you have a scan tool that reads computer codes?
