I have a 1988 Dodge Dynasty that acts like it's vapor locking.


yes fuel pump is dying (it's old ) it will finnaly give up the ghost some day soon then engine won't run at all

common problem pump heats up and shuts off cools off and runs again cyclic

this all assumes you have kept up on changing the fuel filter at reg intervals too

When the motor is cold and the outside temperature is below 70 the car will not stay running. Will die with in 30 seconds or so of starting, then you have to wait a minute or two befor the car will start...


Are there any service engine soon lights on associated with this problem?

Possible CTS (Coolant Temperature Sensor) or another sensor giving faulty data for the cool air temperature.

Check spark and gas delivery when cool, below 70 deg. If the spark is not being delivered or the fuel injectors are not delivering fuel at this temperature, it will explain why it doesn't run right until it is warmed up.

When the outside temperature gets above 70 degrees it stalls and dies.  During the winter it worked fine.


It seems strange that you have this starting/no power issues when it over 70 degrees outside but not when it is cold. When it is cold the battery and starter are normally under more pressure to start the engine and it is also harder to burn and atomize fuel when it is cold.
The reason I suggest removing the trim panel and checking voltage at the ignition switch is that is the best place to start. The ignition witch has to have power present at the switch and must distribute that power as the key is turned to operate accessories and the starter motor when turned to the start position.

When outside temp. gets above 70 degrees, car will quit running


First thing to do is find out what is missing when it dies, spark and plugs or fuel at the injector.
The next time it dies out, have him pull a spark plug wire off, crank the engine over and see if the ignition system makes a nice snapping spark. If that is good, you will want to get a fuel gauge and install it and test the fuel pressure, should be around 30 psi. Once you figure out which one it is we can go from there.
Good luck.

2001 Ford F-150 Dyes in traffic id outside temp is above 70 F


heat build up causing spark system to break down

tell tale sign is highway drive is fine (plenty of cool air under hood)

you may have spark module prelim failure
it'll only get worse eventually it won't run but a few minutes

'92 dodge caravan dies at operating temperature


With the difference in years, there maybe a difference in alot of things. I'd start with mking sure every sensor, injector, everything links up properly to the 99 caravan pcm. If it's seeing the wrong info it will be a no go. Sounds like it's thinking it's -40 outside(foot to the floor to start) this indicates the coolant temp sensor maybe screwy. Let me know what you find, and about any other changes or issues.
