    Engine stalled pulling in the driveway. Just dies, no lights.  Starts right back up.  Have noticed the problem at extremely low speeds and when turning the wheel...the idle will drop below 1000.  Have also noticed this happens more in warmer weather once they change the gas mixture.  Engine is 4.7 liter with 37,000 miles.  Typically put regular in as gas.  Computer analysis shows nothing.  Any ideas or suggestions would be great.  Thanks!!

Sounds like a dirty or faulty, IAC motor. (idle air control motor) It controls your idle speed under load, so vehicle doesn't stall at stop signs etc. Turning wheel, heater on, ac on etc, are all load conditions that it controls the idle for. Have had good luck at removing it, spraying it & port it comes out of on throttle body, with throttle body cleaner, and re-install. Some will take quite a while before they act up again, or may last a week or 2. if it does cure it, and it starts doing it too frequent after cleaning, replace it.

1994 Mazda PU Truck sometimes won't start if shutoff for 5-10 minutes.. Several tries later, it will start. spark seems ok, it gets enough fuel for a second, but then poops out. fuel pump shuto

Well there is no shutoff relay, but there is a fuel pump relay that powers the pump.
I would check it first. The computer grounds the relay for 3 seconds when you crank the engine to boost fuel pressure. Once the engine starts the pump is powered only if you have oil pressure.

1992 silverado 1500. The power steering is intermittent, sometimes it works well for 3-4 days and then gets tight at low RPM. If I put in the clutch and rev the engine during a turn it starts to work.

If the belt and fluid levels are correct there is a good chance it may be a bigger problem. The power steering pump may be the fault. At lower speeds a worn pump isn't turning fast enough to push enough fluid. When you REV the engine your speeding up the pump pushing more fluid. Get the pump checked. If that's ok your possibly looking at a problem with the rack itself. ($$$ Ouch!).

HI Please tell me how the fan in the front of the engine should work, we had the fan switch replaced when we start the car the fan turns faster before it was slower is this correct, is this how it is...

The fan speeds are control by th ECM. The fans speeds are determined by the temperture and load on the engine. And when you use the A/C. Sometimes you will see them at a low speed , sometimes fast. This is normal.

I have a jetta 2000 ... 2.0 am facing problems with my speedometer which is suddenly indicating 240 km then going back to normal speed, once i press hard on the gas when ever the indicator reach max speed...

Change the Engine speed sensor. This can sometime cause your dash to do all sorts of weird things when they fail, such as setting the low fuel warning off as well. strange but true ! good luck
