First thing to do is clean battery terminals. Then clean the grounds on the frame rails 1 is right under the battery tray, the other is about the same area but other side of car. That would be the first thing to try. It also could be a faulty ignition switch as well you can take the covers off the column and have a peak at the wiring if its burnt you found the prob. You might also have it scanned for codes could also be a bad cam sensor or crank sensor.

My 1995 Dodge Intrepid lower bottom radiator hose fell off and overheated now car will not start

There is overheated. This when a person sees the gauge go hot or the light comes on and they shut the car off. Then there is melt down. This happens when they keep driving it till the engines dies itself. Usually blows a head gasket. Can also cause major damage to the crank shaft and bearings. Before throwing any more money at it. Do a compression test.

98 and 99 intrepid was manufactured with weak fuel pumps causing them to vapor lock try pouring cool water on the fuel rails on the intake to calm vapored gas then try to start it. Even the temp gauge at half way mark is probably still low on coolant causing engine to be warmer than normal causing the vapor lock to fix this problem replace the fuel pump with a 2000 or newer intrepid fuel pump that carries a little higher psi to prevent vapor lock from reoccurring this pump is compatible with your 98 it will plug right in

If you have a electronic dash you can turn your car over 5 times without starting it and it will give you the codes. This sounds like possible vacuum hose,distributor cap wires and plugs. Hope this helps.

Our car keep stalling out while driving What is wrong with it

Well the first thing you need to check if your vehicle is stalling out is that you have good fuel flow, so the first thing to check is the fuel filter, followed by fuel pump.

If both of those are good then pull some of the spark plugs and look at the condition. If they are wet with fuel then you might not be getting spark to them.

I was driving then temp. gauge went hot and it stalled checked by coolant fine now it starts but when you put in gear it goes 10 feet then stalls and wont restart for about 20 min.

Check if the fan turns on a few minutes after a cold start. It may be a problem with the fuse or the relay. Check if you loose coolant, there may be a leak somewhere, the hose, bad fuel pump, radiator leaks or a bad radiator cap.

1995 pontiac bonneville stalls

I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.

The ignition switch is faulty if the gauges and dash lights will not come on, change the fuses first. Transmission fluid and filter change needed. Differential gear oil change also needed.
