Question about 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

Open Question

Why does my car just die without a warning when it warms up?

I can drive until the car gets to where it is fully warmed up then it dies with no warning wait 15min it will start then die shortly after. The temp guage never gets to the middle mark so it don't overheat. It smells like gas sometimes.

SOURCE: Temp guage dont read

U are talking about two different sending units, one is the Engine Coolant Temp sensor, the other is the temp guage sender, sounds like you have a bad thermostat, if the engine doesn't reach the proper operating temp it will set a code for the engine coolant temp sensor, and the guage will not move or move very little, replace your thermostat and both problems will go away.

Engine will die after warmed up


depends on what you mean by "warmed up". If you mean engine reaches normal working temprature and works normally then cuts out , but restarts wwithin 5 minutes and then carries on working normally until it cuts out again, and then restarts withing minutes...have the throttle position sensor checked. It may be that you have a warning code on the dash?
It might be the pedal position sensor alternatively.
If your engine works ok until fully warmed up this may be the problem.
If there are any symptoms before the cut out happens can you please add the details and repost thwe query

1988 F250 EFI will start and run until warm and die


Check if the idle is rough and if rpm dips then dies. You may just need to have the intake cleaned (tuner cleaner) out or check vacuum hoses for loose or leaking ones check also for leaks in the intake after the air filter. Check if all cylinders has spark. Check also if the fuel filter is clogged. If the car just dies without warning you may have to check additional items, the distributor may be going bad, the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump itself. It would be best to have a scanner used to see if you can retrieve errors to accurately identify the issues.

1992 cavalier. starts and drives fine, but will die after it's been driven if i try to put it in gear again. What's the problem? bought it site unseen, drove it home about 7 miles and it started sputtering...


Try pulling the vacuum line off of the EGR valve when the engine is warm and starts to sputter. If it runs good cold and then dies when warm and won't start again until the engine cools it is most likely a bad or sticking EGR valve. Try the procedure to confirm it is the EGR. You can check the internet for location and an image of the EGR valve for your specific car. Please rate me on this answer.

My 1980 dodge 3/4 ton 4x4 keeps stalling when it gets warm. It happens randomly when it wants to, without warning . I thought it was the fuel pump and replaced it. It still keeps doing it. I have also...


May be the distributor. I had the same prob on a 1978 Ford. Get warm, die, wouldnt start until cooled down. Replaced the distributor, no probs. Not the cap, under the cap.

Car dies when it heats up and won't crank back up until cooled


normally a speed control sensor can solve this problem, but also check the crank senson.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
