Engine missing when under load

It will miss only when up to operating temp. Whe ambient temp. is cooler it will not miss. [winter conditions] I replaced all the usual tune- up partd and the coolant temp. sensor in the intake.

No heat while driving down road have replaced thermostat and waterpump

wow 1,double posted, why do that.
wow 2, contradicts the first.
here is your other post
"Have heat when sitting still no heat driving down road replaced water pump an thermos state"
wow3, did this happen before removing parts?
or did this precipitate all actions.
or just doing tuneups and now fails.?
context is everything, and history.
wow 4, no engine of the 4 stated.
you left out HAVE HEAT, this time. why?

why not add to the first post
better yet, answer the questions?

here i ask 1 more time
1: have heat where, (cab heat, or is it engine heat missing or BOTH?)
2: what does the below meter do.? under all conditions, moving car and not. hot engine.????

see the red arrow for good heat,?
the gauge must start low, (at ambient air temps)
the rise to the (purchased) thermostat rating (unstated)
the hold there, parked and moving at any speed.
that is NORMAL>

x2 levels in actual rad.
x2 not burping all air out of system,
wrong stat
installed backwards or missing seal.
see the seal on my 3.7l (1 of 4 engines)
if missing or wrong sized or old and ratty,
can leak.even inside leaks.

Hi-Speed Miss under load on Park Avenues - Both Ultra and Non-supercharged

Dear sir/madam,

I think he crank sensor is defective, or installed wrong. The cam sensor controls fuel injector timing and can cause sputtering and hesitation. The timing must be correct for the injector to fire when the intake valve is opening. Check for any scratch marks on the cam sensor. In addition, check the cam interrupter magnet and be sure it in place and not damaged.

The ECM sends a 5-volt reference signal to the CTS sensor. As temperature changes in the coolant, the electrical resistance of the CTS sensor also changes. The best way to test this sensor is with a scanner. When the engine is cold, engine coolant temperature should measure near the same as the ambient temp. Another way to test the CTS sensor is to measure voltage from the time the engine is started, until it warms up. Record the voltage changes as the engine warms up to operating temp. i.e. 120, 140, 160 & 180. You should see close to the full range of voltage (5.0-1.0V) during this test. If it does not change from what you first measured cold, replace the sensor!

good luck

Engine shut off while driving

Check for fault codes . You probably have a failing coil or faulty air ambient temp sensor or engine temp sensor faulty.

Air Conditioning only works during winter and heat only works during summer!

Miss Kristin, your situation sounds more like the air flow blend doors/flaps under dash are operating, but incorrectly. All these vehicles temperature changes are actuated by vacuum from the running engine. In your case it's possible a vacuum line has become disconnected from the blend switch behind the lever or the 2 heat and a/c hoses have become switched. Either way, I believe it must be in the vacuum lines under dash, or possibly no vacuum at all to the blend switch because the main hose from the engine has become disconnected or is broken. Best of luck on this luv.

3 most common causes for your problem are:
  1. Bad EGR (Exhaust Gas Reciculation) valve - clogged EGR will cause engine to stutter or miss
  2. Bad MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor - will also make an engine stutter when bad
  3. Bad TPS (Throttle Postition Sensor) regulates idle speed under multiple conditions.

My 1999 Olds Intrigue, 3.5 motor, auto trans, heats up when going uphill. Going downhill, or on a flat road, with the same number of RPMs, it does not. Recently had the engine cooling system flushed, and...

could be a good candidate for the overheating problem
it is probably the oil line that goes to the oil cooler in the radiator and if it doesn't have sufficient flow then the oil in the transmission gets progressively hotter
before replacing it consider this
transmission oil coolers that are in the radiator tank keep the oil at coolant temps which is around 95 C
if you spend a bit of cash and fit an air to air transmission cooler , it brings the operating temp of the oil down to 1/2 ambient temp
besides the fact that your are now removing an added heat source from the coolant of the engine the results are --cooler running engine and cooler running transmission
worth talking to an accredited transmission specialist shop

Engine miss when ambient air temp increases not water/engine temp

there is an ambient temp. sensor in the intake air ducting, if its a small round two wire plug you can unplug it and the computer will think its -40C. You will set a code when you do this, but should go away after you plug it back in.
Depending on the engine you could have a cracked mainshaft in your distributor which is quite common, unfortunately most cracks are on the underside of the shaft which requires removing the distributor.

This reading is a default setting and it looks like the ambient temp sensor is either faulty or missing, it should be located in the front lower plastic panels under the front bumper. hope this is of some help and if the sensor is missing/damaged you will not be able to reset it

2001 F-250 Super duty V-10 small amount of oil in radiator

oil in a radiator indicates that the transmission oil cooler in the radiator tank has failed and leaking transmission oil into the radiator
there are 2 possible fixes
fix one is a new radiator
fix 2 is to give the radiator oil cooler a miss altogether and opt foe an air cooler mounted in front of the radiator
the advantages here are that the radiator then has a bigger capacity to handle the engine heat as there is no hot transmission oil adding to the engine heat
the second advantage is that the transmission oil is being cooled to ambient temp and not engine temp which makes for longer transmission oil life
the disadvantage is that it cost a bit more than a radiator initially but the long term savings are real
oil to air oil coolers are available from auto transmission shops and quality auto spares shops
