Could be a huge vac leak, or the throttle is stuck open.

SOURCE: known transmission problem. pulling

How could you expect anyone to know this without even looking at the vehicle??? You didn't bother to even mention what kind of car it was. I guess the only accurate answer that can be given to the question that was asked is this: The thing that made the engine stop running is what let go.

http://www.aboutautomobile.com/Complaint/2005/Ford/Escape/Transmission+Control+Module+(TCM)+and+Powertrain+Control+Module+(PCM)I tried to put a hyperlink but MacBook not cooperative today.Go to this site if possible or to www.aboutautomobile.com and put in the year of your Escape. This is a 'very' common problem which Ford is aware but chooses more times than not to allow owners to pay for. The site will let you look at the complaints and how some got this problem fixed.

Driving along makes a very loud noise like motor is racing, but continue driving, noise goes away then starts again???


Please take a look at your Engine's RPMs when this is happening and let us know, as it will help with the diagnosis. If the Engine RPM is stable (not high during the periods of the racing engine sound), then it sounds like your Radiator Fan clutch may be going out. The noise you are hearing is the fan kicking in and blowing a lot of air, which in turn sounds like the engine is racing.

If the RPMs are increasing with the racing engine sound, it could be the transmission/(clutch if manual trans) slipping.
Hope this helps!

Heater not blowing hot air


Hi Chris, sounds like your thermostat may be worn and not closing all the way which would cause your engine to run cool at times. If you have a temp gage it should tell you if the engine is actually warming up or not. If not I would replace the thermostat.

Will the bad waterpump on a 2003 pontiac aztek cause the temperature to overheat sometimes but run good others?


the water pump is working
the problem indicates blocked radiator cores preventing full flow at high rpm
have it flow tested by an accredited radiator shop or just fit a new radiator

Have 1999 cavilleir does it have a rpm protecter


Yes, the PCM for your vehicle's engine has a rev/speed limit seeting programmed into it. Most stock, non high performance/police package vehicles usually won't go above a top speed of 97MPH. if you were to rev your engine while it was in park or neutral, once the engine reaches the cut out rpm limit preset in the PCM, it will cause the engine to cut back, then it will rev up until it hits the preset limit, then cut back, and it keep repeating that pattern. It may sound as though you have a high rev ignition failure that sounds like waaa, waaa, waaa, waaa, but that indicates the PCM is doing its job.

Defrost blows cold air


Sounds like you have a plenum door that is not opening when you go into defrost mode. You will have to check all your vacuum hoses and switching valves under the dash to see which one is not working. Hope this helps.
