    This sounds like a severe engine overheat, was that the case? Check the coolant levels

I just did one of these it blew the head gasket between 2 and 3 cylinder and burnt the piston.You can do a compression test to confirm none of them should be below 75 to 100 pounds .

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again


This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

Car loses power for short time after normal running and cooling down for ten minutes


sounds to be symptomatic of a CTS (coolant temperature sensor). there are two, one is for the interior temp gauge, the other is for the ECU/PCM while both are basicalty the same part, often even the same P/N, they both do extremely different things.

Hi, this is not the first time i've heard of this problem..I have repaired engines with rod knock, crank bearing knock and piston slap after these treatments. These products can clean so much carbon and varnish from the engine that it brings the real internal problems to the surface. Try using thicker oil

1992 Oldsmobile custom cruiser stalls and won't start


Sounds like its not getting enough air then overfeulling .

Check the air mass sensor and air meter. also check all the pipes from the air box for splits etc.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.


mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.
