SOURCE: when engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating

I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.

Have 2002 Nissan Xterra with a 3.3 engine. The engine stopped running 5 months after doing a cylinder head rebuild. She would crank, but wouldn't start. Checked trouble codes and found P0340 Camshaft...

Sounds like TPS sensor. If you replaced the TPS sensor you have to put a relearn program on it again to calibrate the sensor. If you don't have a programmer or know someone you have to take it to a shop and have it done takes literally 5 min

Water pump cracked on suv and overheated, stuck head

ENGINE: ok 3.2L but there are 3 V6 engines. 2 in 3.2L size.
6VD1 (SOHC) free running,
6VD1w (DOHC) belt snap should safe here. gears, put wrong IDK.
you didnt de-mesh the 2 cam gears , right?

6VE1(DOHC) 3.5L (not free running) in last DI form. last year.

the pump seized its bearings the iT CRACKED
the engines power can do that, !
ever heard of DOHC engine before?
and interference engine and how to deal with them?
seems not.

step 8 in cam belt off says
"WARNING Align the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets with their alignment marks before removing the timing belt. Failure to align the belt and sprocket marks may result in valve damage."

the experts say, all are free running but the 3.5L direct injected engine,but the VVT may have problems too, 2004?
never turn a VVT engine backwards.
i can not speak for if the 2 cams on one head the gears are set wrong, some heads on some engines can crash intake row of valves in to adjacent exhaust valve. (wrong assemble only)
be careful,.

You really should tell what you have checked, what you have changed and why it was changed, you hava already wasted a lot of money. has anyone checked to see if the cam is turning, so that the timing belt is verified good? checked for spark? fuel pressure fuel in the tank? the list is endless.

1999 Grand Am won't start stay running after I put

I had a 2000 Bonnie and it would run rough and stall after filling it with gas. Are you filling it while the engine is running? I know, you're not supposed to fill it up while the engine is running. This screws up the vapor return system, which is pressureized. I even talked to my Pontiac dealer and they didn't have a clue. If you're having trouble at other times it could still be a problem with the vapor return system. Hope this helps.
