The fan on ford escort van 51 plate continually runs even when the ignition off


Sounds like either a temp. sensor, or a timer malfunction. There are heat sensors that make the fan run after you shut it down, until it's cooler, usually doesn't run long. You didn't mention if it continually runs, or if it shuts down after awhile. Other than taking it to a shop, check your fuses, wires connecting the fan under the hood, look for any frayed wires and/or loose clips. Good Luck. Grimm

2008 Sprinter stalls at idle when in gear


2506 PCM/ECM Power input signal range/performance
110 IAT Intake Air Temp sensor 1 circuit
104 MAP/ Baro sensor low input
You probably did do some damage by not isolating the engine and controls out before the repairs/mods were started.

1996 mercedes c280 dies when put in drive


Engine stalls or RPM fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control

My 98 jetta 2.0 will not hold idle by itself until reaching operating temp. then a good long idle. in drive it completly shuts down after about 10-15 sec driving. will start up run for a few sec and shut...


Try replacing your Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, it's cheap and easy to replace. Just remember do it when the coolant is cool to work with before you start cracking a pressurized system.
