Question about Cars & Trucks
It sputters and shuts off after its been driving for awhile ... iv replaced the radiator fan, themostate, and the module and its still doing it iv been told it could be vapor lock .. if so how would i be able to fix that
What part of the country are you located in? is it hot in that area alot? see if you can follow your fuel lines if they are not inside of a frame rail from the fuel tank forward. you could wrap your fuel line once it comes out of the rail going to the fuel distribution area of the motor. it might be to close to a heat source which boils the fuel before it get to atomized.

I have a '94 Tempo, it had a "ticking" sound. It was the "harmonic balancer" (crankshaft pulley) a local mechanic changed it for $60, the part cost me $120 (I work for a Ford dealership) $180 without employee discount. you can get one for much less at a junkyard if you can find one. Good luck, Sean

The main reason for the over heating of the audi tt is to do with the water pump. The propeller within the first type of water pumps is made of plastic. This was to prevent corrosion, however was never designed to last longer than 5 years. What you need to do is purchase the new style water pump. These new style water pumps have been designed with a metallic propellor which should resolve the overheating. Let us know how you get on.

Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating,
I assume the motor is actually running hot, - ensure the high gauge reading is not just a gauge sender problem.
Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.
If none of the above fix your problem, replace the thermostat again - it is not unheard of for a new thermostat to be faulty .
