Could bad maf sensor and bad idle air valve have vehicle stall then hard to start for awhile and cuts off after 10 minutes of driving


I would also suspect the ignition module. They tend to work ok for a few minutes when they are cold, then fail once they warm up. If you wait awhile for the ICM to cool down, it will work as well as it can until it warms up again. A code scanner is your best friend to know where to start looking, and to perform tests and log data.

The choke function is not working on a cold engine.
1 clean throttle body and IAC motor air pathways.
2. Check for engine codes, you are looking for a code that relatws to the wngine temperature sensor.

I have a w reg, diesil transit van and the engine seems to have started to cut out once it has warmed up, after about 4 or 5 miles,it was driving ok, then all of a sudden it lost power and a few mins later...


Find the cold start switch on the engine. This unit will put more fuel into the engine and set the idle a bit higher for cold starts till warm up then go beck to normal. It appears there is a malfunction in this switch. Replace it, or you can do what I did and put a toggle switch on the power in side of this switch so that you can shut it off after it's a bit warmed up and will stay running. That's all I can imagine would cause your problem on diesel engine.

if it shuts off after running for a while and will not restart for about 10 min,a bad crank sensor will cause this. abad crank sensor will make car shut off and not restart for about 10 min. put a scanner on to make sure. a check engine light does not allways come on. if you do not have a scanner, any auto parts store will scan it for free.

Won't go into reverse this morning


reverse requires more hydraulic pressure to hold it in reverse. Maybe you have a partially plugged filter that the thicker, cold fluid can't get through. The whirr could be the pump in the trannie being dtarved for fluid due to being plugged. Otherwise, you may have a bad clutch or band for reverse that requires a trans overhaul. good lcuk.

97 dakota barely warm heat


If replacing the thermostat dosen't work ,It is most likley the heater core.Don't worry it's not as bad as you think.You will need to flush it out.Disconnect the hoses from the firewall, in the engine compartment.You will find them to the left of the brake booster.A 5/8" garden hose will fit with the end cut off.You may want to place a length of hose on the opposite tube as well.Turn on the water and flush it for a few minutes.Reverse the water into the other hose to back flush.Reconnect the hoses and you should have heat.
