Car starts but after running awhile will stop in the road while driving?

This could be almost anything. Does the engine turn but not start when it stops? If so, can you determine if the engine is getting gas?

If you leave it for a while, does it then start and run for a while? If so, a very common problem is the electronic ignition pickup coil. This is the part that replaced points in the distributor. They develop an open when they get hot and when they cool down the connection is made again. This makes the car run until it gets hot and runs again when it cools down.

The good news is the pick up is not very expensive or difficult to change.

Best of luck, Jim

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.

The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off

you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.

91 4.3l won't run hot

You have a TransMission Problem..It's Called a "Torque Converter Lock-up solenoid" ..

When the Engine is cool the solenoid is not being used,
When the Engine is Hot, the solenoid Kicks in and makes your Chevy Run like your pulling an 18 wheeler.

Wait till the Engine is Cool, Slide Under your Van, Drivers side near the shifter is a 4 wire Plug.
Un-plug the wire and see if your trans works after it's hot.. your just by-passing the solenoid BUT I have never found a use for it my self..

IF you still get Lock up after this, you are stuck bringing to a trans shop or see if the solenoid cam be removed without ripping the whole trans apart..
