Windstar runs then dies then starts back up


At best, this would really be hard to find, since you can drive it hours before it happens. You could start by pulling all the fuses one at a time check them and put them back in. This gets rid of corrosion contact problems. You can also do the to all the plugs. Sounds like you have a heat up problem. Some thing in the electrical system is getting hot and loosing contact. Things that would kill the engine would be , the ignition switch, the map sensor, the mass air flow sensor, And the engine control module. Parts inside of these can heat up enough to loose contact. Your's is going to be a hard one to find. Until the part completely dies.

My 95 ford f150 runs great till it warms up it seems then the fuel pump looses power n shuts down wait few mins kicks back on runs fine till few min later


Sounds like your ignition module it is common on fords to do this when its cool it will start and run fine but once it heats up the truck dies until you let it cool down again and then your up and running till it heats up again. Some modules are mounted on the fender others are mounted with the distributor have it checked and let me know how it went.

1998 cherokee stall when driving and gets warm ,And wont start till it cools off ?


does your temp gage seem off does it go like up to the h because if it does you could try unpluging your upper coolent sensor because that could cause that because it is telling you computer to run in closed loop when it should be running in open loop

When my corolla is cold it starts fine. I can drive for about a 1/2 mile and then it quits and will not start. I let it sit for awhile and it will start again but not run for very long. So it seems to be...


Is there any kind of check engine light on, or emissions light on? Sometimes when the ignition coils heat up they will short out and stop working, and after they cool down they will work again only till they heat up, then they will stop. If this doesn't help i would need more information to better diagnose whats wrong. Thanks, good luck, Bob

1988 mustang stalls


Hi,

I may be able to lead you to the problem area, but it will take some work on your part. I had a 1988 Ford Thunderbird (I have a 94 now), and it sounds exactly like a problem I had. After completely researching everything, spending hundreds of dollars on parts for this and that, it turned out that it was the cars computer brain. I went to pick-your-part and bought a used computer module, and everything was fine. I paid $80.00 for it. Not only was everything fine, but my gas mileage and performance increased. This may not be your problem, but it is definitely something for you to at least investigate. I hope this helps.

1989 chevy g20 STALLING


Normally on chevy ignition modules when they go bad, they will quit when they get hot & after cooling down will work again, so when you have them tested they have cooled down. I would try changing it & see if it wont fix it.

Hyundai accent stops running after heats up


I had the exact smae problem and threw aaway a ton of money on bad "guesses" at what was wrong. The actual fix was replacing the crank shaft position sensor for 50 or 60 bucks. Swapped out bad for good and cars has run great every day since.

'92 Ford Festiva stalls when overheats


it sounds like your radiator fan is not working. once your engine reaches a certan temp. the fan should come on to cool it down. also might be the thermostat is not opening. it is not good for the motor at all to over heat and stall. you could ruin your engine. i would change thermostat first and then run it till it starts getting hot to see if the fan kicks on. if it doesn't, it could be the coolant sensor or the fan itself. good luck.
