Where is the engine over heat shut off switch?

Hello - when the engine overheats (and your ignition/key switch) is still functional you basically have two options:

1. Turn the vehicle off at the key (you could also disconnect the negative terminal on the battery - cars aren't the way they used to be - you can't disconnect the cable to see if the alternator is producing the electricity to keep the vehicle going - if you disconnect the battery the car is down for the count with the electrical systems now.

2. If you're driving in a residential area or city (redlight to redlight or stop sign to stop sign) - all that stop and go traffic prevents you from running the vehicle down the road without stopping to get cool air pushing through the radiator. If you're ever in a situation and you have no choice but to drive and the car is overheating/but not blowing the bypass on the cap - you can also get out on the interstate - going those speeds without stopping forces cool air over/through the radiator - helping to cool down the coolant faster. Unless there is a near total meltdown - that will actually help the engine cool faster than just the radiator fan will.

Engine is shutting down going down road on 2004 Columbia freighliner with Detroit engine. Only message is EnG.

The ENG is for as group of codes that logged on and turn on both the check engine and stop engine lights this alerts the operator to stop the engine before damage occurs
having that done the engine control module probably shuts the engine down in case the operator ignores the warning or doesn't see it
contact a detroit service center for an explanation of the warning and what it refers to
it may not be as I said but then to ask will save heaps of money if I am right

My 2009 sorento when i stop at a light or stop sign its like the engine wants to shut down but it stops when i take my foot off the break pedal

Sounds like a misfire condition... This condition will set trouble codes that you can scan for at your favorite local auto parts store for free. Just go up to the parts counter and ask them to scan your engine codes. This will give you a clue as to what is going wrong with your car. It could be more than one component causing the problem.

When stopped at a stop light my oil gauge goes down and my temperature gauge goes up on my 94 Chevy 1500 truck. I just changed the oil yesterday? What could it be?

Both issues could be normal to a degree. The engine temp would go up some when the truck stops moving, and the oil pressure would go down some when the engine returns to idle.
Are the two gauges reading out of normal range ?

2001 Chrysler Concorde LXI randomly stalling while slowly dow to stop or turn. Will usually crank back. This car will sit and idle for ever, but when you drive it for 10-15 minutes and slow down to stop or...

One suggestion:
Speed sensor failure.

Some of the classic symptoms, stalling at dead stops. failure to auto lock doors. poor fuel economy. Failure to go to overdrive.

Go to your local parts store and run the failure codes.

Shop notes:
Your ECU thinks that the engine is running with out moving, During slow down the engine steps down the idle to match ground speed and as a result the engine will not stall. At present it goes directly to idle and stalls due to drag on motor.
Hope this tip helps.

Rpms move up and down at idle,sometimes engine stops when I come to stop or slow down to turn.

CTS 2004 shuts down when making a stop and car lost thrust on Hwy

Tell the dealership uhugh. if the check engine light comes on, there is an error code which gets stored in the computer. on the nicer vehicles (like yours)it stores vehicle information at the time when the error battery voltage, rpm, speed, temperature, rpm etc. you need the find out what the error code is. that would give you an idea on where to start looking

hope this helps

The engine shut down while on stop and go traffic. Tried to restart but the throttle was weak and shut down again. After shutting everything down for 5 minutes, restarted the engine. The throttle w

If the car is having trouble maintaining idle (the tach dips and car dies) the common causes are the idle control valve and camshaft position sensors. The cam sensors failing will be indicated by a check engine light.

The ICV can removed and cleaned with good results (I think there is a write up on bimmerfest) or purchased new for about $100.

While you are in there check the intake boot that is Y shaped for cracks, it's prone to fail and will mess up your idle too.
