SOURCE: Cirrus Stalling With Check Engine Light On did not come on the first time it happened

Your problem sounds like it may be a Mass Air Flow sensor, when it does run bad disconnect the sensor, if the engine starts running ok the sensor is bad, this would be the most common reason for your problem and why it is only intermittent. As far as the overheat do you have a coolant leak?

Replace the PVC valve, it's probably clogged.

SOURCE: 2001 pt cruiser running hot after changing

I have a 2001 PT and it overheats the rad fan will not turn on. I took it to auto zone to hook it up to the code reader and it said that BBECM has detected an open or shorted condition in the radiator fan relay circuit Probable cause open or shorted high speed radiator fan relay.
What dose this mean is it a relay or the computer. I have read alot about the pcm needing re-programed is this something the Chrysler deal should take care of it seem to be happening to alot of people.

I have a 99 bravada starts up and idles fine when driving it will start chugging and lose power and pick up and do the same thing again and then it stalls out and have to restart. When trying to restart...


Could be an ignition problem or one of the relays.
When it fails to start, you'll need to figure out if you are missing fuel pressure or spark to the plugs.

1999 Firebird knocking then stall


Well CB....a knocking noise coming from the engine is never good news.

Typically any real ugly noise that stops an engine from running is catastrophic. With the info you provided...low oil pressure, excess oil in the pan, knocking engine sounds and a motor that will now, not turn over...sounds like a bent con rod caused by a failed main bearing.

The engine overheated so the first suspect is the cooling system, some engine designs require that the thermostat be installed with the vent or bypass hole in a certain position. Failure to position the thermostat properly can cause engine overheating.

Another cause of the dreaded knock is "Knocking and pinging" caused by a low fuel octane rating, carbon deposits on cylinder walls or incorrect spark plugs... all not good. I think you would have noticed if your motor was knocking and pinging for any extended period of time.

Excess oil in the pan gets frothed up by the crankshaft slapping it around and aerates the oil which decreases its shear strength, which is what keeps metal parts from contacting directly together.
This could ruin the main crankshaft bearings.

First thing I would do is remove all the spark plugs (to reduce engine compression) and place a socket on the crank pulley bolt and try to turn the engine over...you should be able to spin the crank....if you can't get the motor spinning..it's seized up.

Good luck !

2001 Chrysler Town & Country getting 9.6 mpg


yes you need a new thermostat or there is low coolant. this will affect the mpg because your overheating and thats why its stalling. dont drive until you fix or you will blow your head gasket if it isnt blown already. change thermostate and check coolant.

2004 susuki forenza won't start after i put new head and put in time ,ran good for thirty minutes


Old post but , this answer covers all , of this type symptoms.
new head,
ran for 30 minutes
so does it crank ? ok? if not dont crank, it can start.
so crank is next. (first)
backfiring (true to the air cleaner) usually means TIMING IS way off and sure engines can start with timing way off and then stall and flood out.
nothing new there.
you did not time the engine correctly.

get the FSM on engine. read the pages.
or go to alldata.com and read that.
for others searching using google, my lil. contribution;

Wont start takes hours to start again


.When the injectors leak they flood the engine and holding pedal to the floor or waiting hours for fuel to dissipate. See if you have spark and fuel when it wont run. If there is no spark check the electronic control module under the cap
