Runs fine til the temp out gets hot enough then dies. Wait ten mins and it will start again and run for a few mins then dies again


you didn't say if it was hot on the temp gauge? no matter, it sounds like you have a stuck t-stat. when the engine is cold, a mechanical valve keeps the water from coming out of the engine block until warmed up, then opens and lts the cooler water in. this cools down the engine and the colder temp of the water shuts the valve again. this happens constantly while the engine runs, and if your t-stat is stuck, the engine heats up the water in the block, but with nowhere to go, simply overheats the motor. a good repair book will locate the thermostat housing for you and should you the repair procedure. (i assume you have checked the water in the rad. low water will give you same symptoms). good luck.

My 91 civic runs and drives good but sometimes i shut it off and it wont start back up 4 awhile and then i hear a click and it starts back up please help


check your solenoid on your starter, usually when it get hot it fail until it cool off. a sign of starter going bad if you have to wait til the starter cool off before you can restart the car again. also check contact to the starter. if you having problems getting the starter to work you can get a small hammer and lightly tap the starter, 90% of the time it will kick over.

My chevy drives for 45mins then shuts off


Your ignition module is bad. Known to stop working when it gets hot and work again after it cools off. Replace it. Good luck
