If the vehicle is over heating and shutting off you have a blown head gasget, the best way to look for this is to look in the rad and see if its dark, if it is then stick your finger in the fluid to see if its oily, if still not sure then pull the dipstick for motor oil and look to see if the oil runs off fast.

1987 f 150 6 cyl starts and runs till hot then wont till cooled off


Probably a bad ignition coil or a bad TFI module (the ignition control module). Much testing could be done to find the faulty part, but I believe if you take the TFI module to a parts store, it could be tested.

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

We have a 98 Malibu that turns over but won't start.I was told it might be the fuel pump.If I use a diagnostic meter,will a code show for a bad fuel pump?


A bad fuel pump will not necessarily show a code. If you have a throttle body try spraying a little bit of starter fluid into it. Then try to start the car. If you have it will be under under the air cleaner cover and kind of looks like a conventional carbureator. If it starts with starter fluid and then dies you have a bad fuel pump, or clogged fuel filter. The fuel pump will be in the fuel tank. Im not sure where your fuel filter would be.

Hi I own A 98 Chevy Malibu, my ignition locked n i had to put a new ignition switch in, well now my cars tellin me Something Theft Service. Im wonder what I need to do? Iv unhooked battery for hours ect...


You need to reset the theft system. To do this, try to start it. It should start and die. Then after it dies and the theft light is flashing, leave the key on for 10 minutes. After 10 min, the theft light should go out. After the theft light goes out, turn off the key. Count to 5, then restart it. Then it should work.

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.


first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer
