I had the same problem with f-150. the timing chain would stretch when it heated up and cause it to quit and naturally it wouldnt start until the chain cooled down and tightened back up.

After a long trip when engine gets hot, it wont start until it cools off


make sure you have 50/50 coolant and water.i would replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace air filter make sure engine getting fresh air.check radiator cores and front grille from debris blocking off airflow through grille to radiator.if problem continue flush out coolant system radiator engine block and heater core.water going bad cause over heat problems also.

My escort overheated so added water then i tried to start the car but it wont start, its cranks but it wont start


need add add antifreeze half antifreeze and water to raise coolant boiling point. replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.wait until engine cool then try starting it up.depends on how long you drove car when engine over heated.if you turn off engine soon as it over heated no harm done.if you kept on driving and engine die of lack of cooling, and car wont crank you could have blown head gasket warped or cracked cylinder head.

I have a 91 chevy cavalier it runs until it gets warm then starts to shake and sputter then it stalls wont start again for couple hrs what it wrong with it


This sounds like a bad control module, this is an ignition control module and it sounds like when it heats up it goes bad until it cools down, if you remove it ,there are many auto part stores that will test it for you, but make sure its tested a few times so it heats up good,

1989 for tempo starts fine but after idling for a few minutes will quit. Will stall when you pull up to a stop sign. Have to keep the engine revved up to keep it running. The check engine light comes on...


hi,

its time for new fuel filter, new fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor. the engine in the tempo is a good one and if you take care of it that car should last quite a while longer..

My tempo stoped running wile driving in the snow. smoke or steam was cumming out of the back of the engine now my tempo wont start the engine wont even turn to try to start


Take care of cranking 1st, check battery see if it's good, try to get a jump start see if it will turn over, could be a bad alternator or battery.

Wont start after being turned off for at least 30 minutes


Im not sure what you mean when you say wont start after being turn off for 30min, do you mean the starter wont turn the motor over after 30min or the engine turn over but it wont fire/run? if it start every time after its cool down. check the coil, the original coil tend to fail with heat over time. if its original coil for being 1990 I would go ahead and place it. distributor Assembly unit will also need replacing if its original and having high miles. a sign of the coil going bad when it get hot it quit working until its cool off. fuel pump can be another causing the problem. hope that help some
