I had the same problem a few days ago.Would you believe the power windows are on the same ground circuit as the fuel pump?It sounds crazy but true.What I did was take off the entire power window switch on the driver side door and flip it over.You'll see a black wire entering the switch.Thats your ground wire for the power windows.Splice another ground wire upon that black wire and connect it to a good ground source.I grounded the wire I spliced in upon the steel plate that holds the part where you put your hand to close the door.

Never had a single problem since.I would seriously try that.I'm betting it will solve your problem.

Just got saab 900s 2.0 petrol non turbo on a 98 plate ,is the old motor with dizzy cap ,fuel gauge stuck on full and no temp gauge ,whers best place to start look


The fuel gage is most likely the fuel level sending unit inside the fuel tank, the temp could be wiring or the temp sending unit on the engine, try that first.

Will car shut down if runs hot due to loss of antifreeze?


not necessarily, i have a 95 civic that blew a radiator hose on the freeway, and before I could get pulled over, the heat warped and ruined the head. the engine never shut off, in fact I never got an engine failure code. If you see the temp gauge go hot, I guess you have less than 30 seconds to get the engine shut down.

98 and 99 intrepid was manufactured with weak fuel pumps causing them to vapor lock try pouring cool water on the fuel rails on the intake to calm vapored gas then try to start it. Even the temp gauge at half way mark is probably still low on coolant causing engine to be warmer than normal causing the vapor lock to fix this problem replace the fuel pump with a 2000 or newer intrepid fuel pump that carries a little higher psi to prevent vapor lock from reoccurring this pump is compatible with your 98 it will plug right in

How does the fan operates, does it starts and stop. Car shuts down, red light come near milage guage, have to let car cool down and start again. Can fan cause this problem? Pontiac Gran Am 1998.


the cooling fan should come on about 105-107C and shut off about 95-97C
does the car overheat just sitting running not moving
but if the car overheats on the highway then it's not the fan
check the fan operation run the car till the gauge is over half and watch the fan
if the fan woks then check coolant level if that's ok then try a thermostat
hope

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.
