SOURCE: runs when cold, stalls when hot

Have you tried changing your fuel filter. Not saying that is what it is but when you first start your truck it runs good and the longer it runs the more your fuel pressure drops. It is possible that the longer it runs the more trash the filter is picking up and begins to stall but when you turn the truck off the sediment in the filter settles allowing the truck to restart.

SOURCE: Flooding engine

hello again
look at the fuel rail you will see where the fuel regulator is it has a vacuume hose attached to it.
the first test we need to do is dissconect the vacuume hose and just turn the key on do not start. make sure ther is no gas in the vacuume hose or comming out of the regulator..
i have had these leak and flood the engine.
let me know how this turns out?
if this isnt the problem we need to check your injectors.
later paul

Gas Filter? Then scan tool on it,to look for codes set when check light came on. Most likely a senor is old and out of range.

My truck gets hot and wont start till it cools off

It has to do with returning to the "cold start sequence" or its a coil problem. The engines run so lean that the fuel mix is too lean to start unless the engine resets to the cold start sequence. Try a little starting fluid (very little) to see if the engine was fuel starved and now starts.

You might need a new temperature sensor if the starting fluid helps. But if the starting fluid does not help, it sounds like a "heat-sink" problem with an electrical component. Without the engine circulating water or cooling air from the fan blades, an engine can exceed the normal operating temperature, especially with the catalytic converters heating everything under the hood.

You might try opening the hood when you park it (I know its not very practical) to see if it shortens or eliminates the restart problem.

Aireated fuel after cold soak

check for a loose fuel line hose/connection that is allowing the fuel to drain back over time and filling the line with air that is causing a air lock when trying to start

I have a 2007 Suzuki xl7. When I first start down the road it seems to drive fine but within 1/2 to 1 mile it starts running very rough, leaping along. This goes for about another 1 to 3 miles. It runs...

ok and XL 7 but what engine options. gas, diesel, 2L , 2.5L?
and most important , and never ever 1 time stated on this forum
what country.

im not sure what you are saying.
it runs ok cold, and as it warms , the engine. it stalls.?
and what does same thing mean.?
my guess, it starts fine then stalls; hot.
but can you save the stall?

stalling is complex. can be many systems in the car.
but can be broken down to :
Ever did the 60k mile tune up,ever? if not why not.
never skip 60k\'s or the motor will run like garbage.

1: lost electrical power. to EFI .
2: bad engine, in that when it gets hot , it loses compression.
3: lost park. 1 or more cylinders, 4 or 6 you never said.
4: bad injection. 1 or 6 of them, flooding or starving.
5: bad fuel.
6:EGR sticking , usually this happens just before a stop sign.
7: if the stall was a bog and the fast right foot saved the stall, easy
the ISC is sticking closed.

My 1994 buick century runs good for acouple miles and check engine light comes on. Then it start floodin out and eventually dies. After it cools off it will start and run again for acouple miles. Its...

without knowing much more info about you engine and systems on board, I can give you the most likely.
If you have a triple coil direct ignition then the coil pack is the item to test. ( they fail as they warm up ) If you are describing ( flooding ) as a lack of power, this could be a fuel starving condition and no Black smoke coming from the tailpipe, So if that is the case, look at testing the fuel pressure and or fuel filter.

Those are the most common causes of failures .

Good luck .

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...

Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

Sonata Jerks while driving, feel like the engine stalls & starts

I recommend that you find a good reliable shop and have the computer codes checked. Each time the check engine light comes on it also stores a code in the computer that shows which system is not properly operating. While this info is not specific, it is far better than guessing. The de-carbon service is likely not to help. I'm guessing that your problem is in your fuel management system, perhaps a fuel filter, and service to any decel/idle components. But not being there, it's only an educated guess!
good luck
