I HAVE CONCERN WITH MY CAR REGARDING EXPERIENCING ENGINE OFF AFTER 15 MINUTES FROM THE START OF ENGINE WARP-UP

2007 Daewoo Matiz • 78,000 miles


Dear Sir,

My car is Matiz Daewoo MX, my concern is that it seems that my car is in good condition because when I will turn on the key to run the engine in just one click the engine start immediately but after 10 to 15 minutes the engine automatically off. After this trouble, I need to wait for 5 to 6 minutes to run again the engine, it will run but when you applied accelarator the engine will off again then you need to wait again from 5 to 6 minutes to start up again until maybe 5 times of doing the same until the engine will run normal and the the car can be drive on.

I always experience the same when the engine is cool and then start up it for warm up then after 15 minutes of running the warm-up the engine will automatically off. My worry is that when the trouble will occur then I am in the middle of my trip or the battery will go empty due to successive starting or somehow the starter will be affected. Please help me with this regards.

Best regards,
