Is car consuming any antefreeze? does the temp fluctuate? on worst case, you could be looking at poss. headgasket problem white smoke is usually antifreeze. black smoke is fuel, and gray smoke is oil

Have 96 mustang 4.6 runs great until it gets to operating temp than it kicks miss fires and dies


Without seeing the vehicle and not seeing a datastream,i would suspect catalytic convertor damage causing restricted exhaust gases or shorted oxygen sensor. Most of the time a shorted oxygen sensor will set an engine code. Catalyst restriction is much harder to diagnose ,but will cause inert exhaust gases to back up into the intake manifold. Inert gases do not contain enough oxygen for complete combustion.

I have 92 pajero iwas driving home when temp


Your coolant all leaked out, or your thermostat locked shut, and the engine seriously overheated. Some makes will not start again until the thermostat has been replaced (the Japanese have always been too cute for their own good, and program such things into the vehicle computer) and the computer reset, and sometimes this simply kills the engine altogether. Proper maintenance is a must!

Driving in very hot weather, stopped at light,


you may have blown the head gasket.
or
check the coolant level,is it low?
if it is ok,check the fan switch on the radiator,change the thermostat,and check that the fan is working.
the fan has to work,saab engines run very hot.
there is a after run fan switch as well that measures engine compartment temperature,and can start the fan even with the car off,so be careful.

I have a 1992 honda prelude. During a hard acceleration, the car fails to accelerate. Instead, it produces rough sound as if it is not getting a consistant amount of fuel. Slow acceleration is OK. Also...


Check for free play on distrubtor.
If you has a known good disturbutor then do the swap.

===== Lite white smoke during warm up is OK.
If the white smoke is still noticable after 15 minutes of start up then you should start monitor the coolant level and oil level.
If the temp. is raising then it can be stage one of blown headgasket.

Keep track of the temp. and make sure the oil is not getting a white/creamy texture.
DO NOT drive it if it's overheating.
