Restating 2000 odyssey after warmed up


not sure what that means.
lets start over.
your saying car runs great, cold then hot.
then hard to restart a hot engine, right?
the light thing i dont understand
first off, when you stall and engine or just key ON.
the lamps all self test (read the operators guide there)
this is only a lamp test.
odd, the most important is skipped the CEL, check engine light.
is the engine stalling?
hot restarts, fails are: many.
  1. injector leaking at shut down.
  2. ECT reads to cold when hot. can be below caused
  3. Engine thermostat stuck open and restarts are over rich and floods. that hot engine must be at 180F or more,
  4. never did a 60,000 mile tuneup this decade?
  5. Fuel pressure too high.
i do tune ups first.
then check coolant temperatures, hot. 180F min, and holding or i kick the thermostat to the curb (new stat time)
if it sill dont want to hot start
out comes the scan tool
i scan it, got DTC errors.
is ECT reading 180F ? or above?

that is start on diagnosis.

Engine cold can not start


runs hot,ok, restarts hot ok
just dont start , cold, but it must because how do you get to 2hours?
from hot?
my guess, is it sometimes does start cold.
ever tune it up at the critical 60k mile service, ever, this decade?
that covers 99% bad cold starts. so , we do that first.
diagnosis is like 10x a tune up, so........ $$$$$

Car idols and is perfectly fine. however when you drive after a few minutes it heats up. what could this be? i put coolant in it and the fans come on as they should but still gets hot.


Bad thermostat? check to see if your upper radiator hose is getting hot and that coolant is flowing into the radiator.

If you want to see if the stat opens you need to start with a cold engine. You can remove the radiator cap when the engine is cold without risk of getting burned by escaping steam. Then you start the engine and wait for the coolant to start flowing when the stat opens. If the car heats up and the stat doesnt open then you should replace it.

You said the fan comes on...which usually means the radiator is getting hot enough.....perhaps your radiator is getting plugged internally or you have a poorly functioning water pump?

Check these things out and let me know how things are.

Good luck and be careful.

1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode


Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html
