SOURCE: Blown coil fuse

IG fuse powers: daytime running lamps(DRL) module; transaxle control module; A/C amplifier; main, fuel pump, and radiator fan relays; alternator; heated oxygen sensor; ignition coil, ignition noise suppressor; sensing and diagnostic module(airbag); audio alarm module; and just about every gage and light in the instrument panel; so there are no usual suspects. The best you can do is try to rule out these components one by one. There is a breaker you can buy that plugs in the fuse hole, that way you can **** around with it without wasting three dozen fuses.

SOURCE: have a 97 ply. voyager keeps dying no fire

It sounds like a Crank Sensor to me. They often fail with a little heat and will start working again after they cool off for a while. It is common for them to mess-up and cause stalling without setting any fault codes. yours is located in the transmission bell housing.

Why does my car die when engine gets hot and restarts when engine cooled

Sorry to hear about that. Your problem is most likely an ignition issue. When the vehicle is cold all the parts (including the coils, ignition module) have "shrunk" so to speak. Then, after the engine runs for a while everything starts to expand if you will. When that happens, connections that make contact when cold no longer do so after the engine warms up. Have it checked.

My 96 jeep grand cherokee keeps dieing when it gets hot

My first question would be, do you know if the cooling fan is coming on ? ?
The computer can shut down the engine if it reaches 250 or 260 degrees. You could also have a coil or other electrical part that is failing when hot.

Hi my name is fred i have a 1985 gmc k3500 454 no spark 12 volts at coil new ignition module change coil didnt change a thing checked fuses was driving on highway just died

Did you check for spark at a plug wire or at the coil wire? Check at the coil wire,if there is spark there,the ign rotor is bad,very common to have the hot spark "drill" a hole thru the rotor to the dist shaft. Also check for play at the rotor shaft. Distruibtor bushings tend to go bad,making the trigger wheel hit the pickup coil,killing the spark.

2002 kia optima has intermittent miss; usually upon first cranking, sometimes when stopped at redlights (misses so bad almost dies). About 9 months ago I replaced plugs and wires, I bought Iridium plugs...

I would replace all of the coil packs. If one goes bad the others are soon to follow. Also one weak one can kill the others. You may want to consider using non-OEM if the dealer wants $100 or more per coil. You can find non-OEM for maybe $30.
