Just had a similar issue with my 1995.. started with replacement of the thermostat.. that didn't help. Turns out it's apparently the fan-clutch. Essentially, when there is stress on the engine (driving), the fan actually cuts off and makes it run hot... and my F-150 doesn't like to run hot - starts running rough as well. I'd still start with the thermostat since it's a cheap part and easy to get to.

99 ford f150 4.2 started fine after getting at running temp. shuts off very hard to restart has code 320 changed crank sensor cam sensor no spark


The wiring harness which leads to the crankshaft sensor can rub on the A/C hose on the passenger side. When you restart the engine, it will shake and Torque the engine to the Drivers side until the RPM stabilizes. This will break contact with the bare wire until the wire settles back into position, ready to repeat the cycle. I imagine road bumps can have the same wire flopping around to cause intermittent failures again.

Try putting some electrical tape on the feed wire and then plastic tie the wire to give you clearance.

Mazda 323 1985 runs fine when cold after the car heats up it will randomly die. Just cuts out completely. Won't start straight away but after 30sec it will start like nothing was wrong. Then it will...


This is going to be tough to fix. Chances are its a relay or the ignition module, but until it gets to where it will not start for several minutes or not at all, you won't know if you have fixed it or not.
Something is getting hot, cooling off, then getting hot again.

'91 F150 won't start


I guess there could be debris in the tank - but the fuel filter will catch it and clog up (is that a hint, or what),

Other possible is the ignition coil... the are plastic inside and they dry out and crack inside.... when they are hot - open circuit... When they are cool, closed circuit - working...

so, next time it dies, check for spark. Otherwise, replace the fuel filter (hopefully you have one OUTSIDE the fuel tank).
Let us know - please... -Jim

Truck will not stay running after removal of security system.


You probably need to do the relearn process to reteach your ECM or PCM . dont try to start it but turn the key on for 10 mins until all the idiot lights go off, turn the key to off for 5 seconds and repeat the process 2 more times for a total of 3 cycles. It should be fine after that. I am no expert but it worked for mine.

1997 Honda Odyssey thermostat


Honda recommends that the cooling system be topped up with coolant four times as part of the refill process. When the engine is fully cold open the radiator cap and add coolant until full. Run the car until fully warm with heater at maximum. Let it completely cool down. Remove radiator cap and top up with coolant. Repeat this process two more times. This helps purge the air out of the nooks and crannies in the cooling system.
