Question about 1992 Hyundai Excel

2 Answers

When outside ambient temperature is above 34 degrees Celsius, the car stalls and seems to not be getting any fuel. If I pull over and let motor cool for 5 minutes, the car once again starts but only keeps going for a few kilometres before it stalls once again. It seems to be a fuel; problem caused by hot weather. Otherwise below 32 Degrees Celsius, car goes well and I have no problem. I would appreciate your opinion as I have taken car to a few mechanics and all have charged for tests but have not solved the problem Its sending me broke. Regards Klaus

Hmm difficult one this,its a sensor ok thats causing the problem but what one iam not sure air flow meter is most likely suspect to change all the bits to find the fault you would need an exact model the same to interchange the bits thats the easy way ,try asking in the dealers or catching the mechanics when they are in the local cafe done this before for technical information only problem was none of them knew as only the technician had access to the computer and they were not allowed near it and he pulled the curtain across when he done electrical diagnosis.anyway try the old fashioned cure for this drill a small hole in the petrol cap or in the tube behind it to let air into tank ,cant say weither it will solve the problem or not but it wont hurt.

Your problem is called vapor look where fuel gasses stop the flow of petrol

1998 jeep p0071 error code


Ambient air temperature sensor...
If the temperature change is less than 3 degrees celsius in 200 miles of driving it can trigger this error code.

It actually relates to the outside air temperature which can be displayed on the overhead display unit.

It's a completely meaningless code as such.

1998 isuzu hombre will not start when temperature gets below 32 degrees


run fault codes and look for a faulty ambient temperature sensor as if it is faulty the ECM will not know to enrich the mixture ( like pulling on the choke)

Engine broke due to low temperature


The water expands up to more than 9% when it freeze below 0 degrees Celsius. Due to this phenomena, during the extreme cold weather when the ambient temperature falls below 0 degrees the cylinder blocks of the automotive engines often burst or crack badly.
This damage can be prevented by using the antifreeze coolant in the cooling system.

Hello, There should be a sensor in the air snorkel and if it is sprayed with a choke or brake cleaner it is probably unreliable. This part can be cleaned with Electronics spray. The sensor measures the incoming Air temperature and makes engine adjustments based on temperature.

You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts stores. There are some malfunctions which will not set a Code and yours is temperature sensitive, so the scanner will have to catch it at the right temperature.

Looking at the thresholds you have given, there are a few other possibilities. If you look at hard acceleration, manifold pressure drops and you are saying the engine runs smoother with less manifold pressure. Could be a bad MAP sensor. Then looking at temperatures above 75 degrees, pressure in the fuel tank increases and the Evaporative Emissions system must adjust to capture the gas vapors. If the Evaporator solenoid is misfiring you may be feeling it cut-out. You have replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but has the regulator been adjusted? Some systems use a Relay to help the pressure regulator buffer the constant changes in demand to the fuel pump. The Relay could be bad making it seem that the pressure regulator was bad when it actually was not.

Check with one of the above 3 autoparts places for info on this Relay and if your model has it. I hope my solution is very helpful and that your problem is a less expensive part.

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.

My 88 dodge aries is throttle body fuel injected and when the temp falls below 30 outside, it will crank but not start. I sprayed starting fluid and it ran on that then died. it starts and runs when...


I would check for a bad coolant temperature sensor, of a bad ambient air temp. sensor. You can check these with a good voltmeter, but a scanner would make things much easier. With the scanner, you can se what the computer thinks these sensors are telling it. If it's 20 outside and one of the sensors reads something like -10, there's the problem, but a five degree variation is not enough to make a difference.

2004 Cadillac Escalade Engine Stalling when idling in hot weather


Given your high guage temps of 210 degrees and high ambient temperature of 100 degrees, your engine's stalling can very likely be linked to either one of these three causes: 1) vapor lock; 2) percolation; or 3) PCV malfunction. Here's a really good diagnostic article that precisely addresses this issue of yours:

check all the vacuum lines to make sure they have no holes or damage or have come off especially the one behind the throttle body
