I did not specify which hoses because there are a number of hoses both over and under the fuel injection unit. (Left side of engine as viewed from the drivers seat) Some are water hoses so be careful! Best thing to do if you cannot identify the culprit by exception is to get a shop manual and replace all that look suspicious. Please be aware that not all the hoses are universal ie. can be cut to length from similar diameter hose. Some hoses are "molded" meaning they're formed to a particular shape, usually because a straight hose will bend or collapse in the particular location. You will need to get molded hose either from Volvo or a well stocked import car parts store.

Good Luck!

Engine stalls

The probable reason for engine stalling can be overheating.
The engine can be overheated due to many reasons and their remedies are listed below:
1. Insufficient coolant and water in radiator - Refill the coolant and water in reservoir
2. Radiator fan not working as needed - Loose connections, faulty fan
3. Damaged hoses and pipes - Replace hoses and pipes
4. Clogged pipes - Clean them

1991 Buick Regal wont turn over.

sounds as if you have two problems the first is mechanical problem in the engine witch is causing the noise you are herring and engine to stall but if you did not here this till after you changed the crank sensor you may be lucky as that may be causing both the stall from before witch happens when they heat up and when you installed the new one if it is not set far enough away from the crank it may have hit it and that is the noise you heard and why it will not start back up pull sensor and see if end has damage.
hope this helps

I have a F250 lariat with a 460 - truck stalls when I put it in gear - even after it runs for 20 min. Sometimes it will stall while I'm driving. I had carborator replaced last year. Hope you can help.

Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with 134,000 miles. About 2 months ago it started stalling intermitently. Would stall and I could restart immediately. Now it stalls once every trip at a certain engine temp....

your car problem is overheating, some car model like yours is designed to shut-down engine when engine temp. rise so as to avoid frying the engine. your engine overheating problem is attributed by one of these factors:
1. check or refill radiator water if less
2.check radiator cooling fan operation-if damaged pls. change or check the electrical system.
3. damage/ worn water pump-if damage pls. change the water pump.
4. check for any coolant leak somewhere the coolant line-pls. rectify the leak.
5.worn coolant reservoir cap- change if damaged.
6. clogged radiator-if clogged pls. change it.
7. damaged thermostat valve.

Hey Guys my dads 97 Suburban4x4 is having truble

Ok does the engine turn (easely) when you start it up, if yes, then you got you're self a "crank but won't start" condition. That is a little more complicated but if it simply won't turn when you start then you got a "no crank" condition witch is preaty simple.
First be absolutely sure that you're battery is good, try an other battery on it, one that you know is good. If it starts, change you're battery. I've often seen batterys that charge but go completely dead a soon as you take the charger off of them.
Second, verify the wiring, simply inspect the cable that goes directly to the starter for a cut or damage, also don't forget to check out the engine to body ground, witch usualy corodes and cuts (it's located near the crankshaft balancer and goes directly to the boby) Repair if neaded. Also verify that you're starter relay clicks when you start. If it does not clic, then you got a burned out fuse (fuse #6 in underhood fuse block), a faulty circuit or a faulty relay (underhood fuse block)(can try an other similar relay to verify). You can also try to bypass the starter circuit by simply using a screwdriver to jump the current from the positive pole (big red wire) to the "s" pole (small purple wire) of the starter. Use caution cause sparks will fly and engine may start. If the engine starts, then you know for sure the trouble is in the control circuit.
Third, verify that you hear the starter solenoid clic when you start. Have one of you're buddys start the truck and listen for a loud and clear clic (It is realy loud) If it does not clic at all or is not loud, and all the wiring and relay is ok, then the starter may be the cause (usualy only the solenoid gives away, witch can be changed seperatly)
Good luck, hope this will help

My '00 grand am keeps dying on me! everything is still on as in engine and the dash lights. any ideas as too what the prob is?

Have you ever chg. the fuel filter? If not do that and see if it takes care of the stalling problem, If not than do a fuel pressure test and see if the fuel pump is putting out the correct pressure.( there both cheap to do) If that all chk. out ok than it could be the T.P.S.( Throutle positioning Sensor.) But unless you chk. engine light is on i dought its that. Also chk. for vacume hoses that have come off or broken or rotted, listen under the hood for a hissing noise or high pitch squeel that will indicate a vacume leek witch if severe enought will make it stall out too.

1999 Ford Windstar. engine stalls.

You know, lookinig at this problem more, you have more possibilities of what may be wrong:
  1. Your idle speed may be incorrect
  2. Fuel filter may be clogged or water and impurities in your fuel system
  3. Possible damaged coil pack or wires
  4. Emissions sytem components faulty (a sensor, catalytic converter, muffler, etc.)
  5. Faulty or incorrect gapped spark plugs
  6. A vacuum leak at the intake manifold or vacuum hoses (check the hoses for cracks or damage)
  7. Fuel injection or engine control systems malfunction (ECM)
This should keep you least with the easy stuff to inspect.
