Try driving it in drive as opposed to overdrive, we had the same problem and our mechanic told us it was the fault of a computer chip, the chip in older Bonevilles that cause this problem are located in your transmission and will cost more than it is worth to replace, so I suggest leaving off with putting it in overdrive.

AC blows cold air, fans stop blowing


I think you have a "variable speed resistor" problem, it's overheating. It's an electronic device usually located near or attached to the AC motor blower that controls the fan speed. This is a common problem with aging AC blowers with electronic controls.

Changed thermostst and heater hose, car ran fine but leaked on right side of engine (Freeze Plug) now car stopped running while driving and wont start


sounds like the frost plug(freeze plug)let go and needs to be replaced. may have overheated the motor and it stopped due to overheating, as you say it was running and then just stopped and won`t start. just so you know the right side of the motor is the side facing the radiator as the pulleys face the drivers side. this is how a tech differentiates left from right on a Honda. fill with the proper anti-freeze and water mixture. this is all the help I can give you with the information you have supplied.

1988 Cutlass Calais. Motor runs fine on start up.


Sounds like the veh is loading up on fuel make sure coolant sensor to computer is reading right it could be choking the car.Also check for clean throttle body But what the most likely cause is the mass air flow sensor. Blow it out now do this gently there is a wire in there thats what you want clean. dont spray any liquids on it THANK TIM

Rough idle then stalls


Vacume leak or bad idle motor. With the car in park and running with the hood open listen for leaks moving your hand around the different hoses looking for a change in the sounds that you hear. The idel motor also makes the car idel up to 1500 RPM or so right at start-up then idel down, If it doesn;t the idel motor is likly. Check engine light is on when running? Test for codes, Follow code test charts don't skip any steps!.

2000 grand caravan won't stay running when I stop


When you try to start it back up, have you tried very slightly pressing on the accelerator and trying to start it? If it does start, but dies as soon as you let up on the pedal, dollars to donuts the IAC (idle air control) passageway is blocked or the IAC motor is bad (should throw out a check engine light though).
