Question about 1991 Buick Park Avenue

My car turn off while I'm driving

I just change the water pump this weekend and today the car is cutting off while I'm driving it's look like is a electrical problem but I've been reading here about the camshaft sensor that is located above the water pump.
You think that could be, because it cut off while I'm driving I switch it to neutral turn the key and it start right back.

If you got the camshaft sensor connection flooded with radiator fluid, just remove it & dry it out. Maybe you also got the connector loose, but one would think that it just wouldn't start right away. Check it. Hope this helps you, Rick

I change the thermstat i change the water pump what alse would make it over heat

I have a 1998 Disco I and I have the same problem. This weekend, June 29, 2013 my car overheated while driving up a maze in a parking garage to the guest parking. All of a sudden my temperature went way high but not quite at the redline. By the time I got to the seventh level and turned off the care, the radiator spewed fluid everywhere. The next morning I drove it home (3 miles) and it did not overheat. I filled the radiator with water and there is no obvious leak. I don't know what to do and I have been driving here and there with no problem and no overheating !!!!?????

I have a 1998 Jeep cherokee sport. Was driving today and it died. Now there is no spark and no power to fuel pump. Changed fuel pump today and it won't run. Recently replaced oxygen sensors too

U need to check the crankshaft position sensor. The fuel pump will only have power for 2 seconds I till it sees a crank signal. It' controls the asd relay which turns on your spark and fuel

Better hope more that the timing belt is ok. If it IS OK and you do find the problem, be sure to replace the belt, tensioner and the water pump, if it wasnt replaced at 90K miles.

there could be an air gap in you coolant circuit, make sure you have purged the entire cooling system of air that might have been be trapped in the cooling circuit when you changed the T-stat.

CODE #P1413


I believe that P1413 is an electric air pump problem. The electric air pump itself, the relay that controls it, or (you hope not) wiring between computer and air pump, or the computer itself. Answer P1413 Secondary Air Injection System Monitor Circuit Low Detailed Description The secondary air injection system monitor circuit is low, indicating the electrical AIR pump is off although the electrical AIR pump was commanded on by the PCM. Possible causes :- Open B+ circuit. Open AIR circuit. Damaged PCM. Air circuit short to ground. Damaged AIR pump. Damaged solid state relay. Diagnostic Aids The AIR monitor circuit is held low by the resistance path through the AIR pump when the pump is off. Also, look for open circuit from SSR to AIR pump.
