Air runs until car runs a distance and engine is shut down. when restart air is not cool?


Well of course not. When you shut the car down, all water circulation stops so engine heat goes way up. This means the radiator gets hot too, and therefore so does the AC condensor. It takes time for all these things to cool back down when you start it back up.

My 1996 Chevy Monte Carlo has a problem with the ECM Batt Fuse, It does not blow it just shut the engine down when it gets hot, what do I need to do to fix it?


If the fuse is getting hot, you most likely have a bad connection in the fuse block. It will be necessary to repar the connection so it makes good, solid contact with the fuse. There are fuse block repair kits available through most AC Delco parts suppliers or at the local GM dealership.

Hi, It's me again, the 97 Crown Vic. I understand exactly what you're saying and will have someone look under my car ASAP. The one thing that I just don't get is.... even when it's not...


Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the engine.as it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.

1991 Toyota Celica, after running at temp. won't restart until it cools down. I don't thing the radiator fan is running. Also, it won't even crank, all the dash lights come up like usual but...


Usually that happens when the ignition coil gets hot. Not sure if your car has one. It looks like a round cylinder with a spark plug wire connected to it.

96 F 150 5.0l stalls out. possibley heat related. wont restart right away. 2x have gotten restarted after 10 min. both times on highway. seems like ign. cant troubleshoot since it restarts. driving me...


The coil wire slide on type ( not Bolt on ) have a tendansy to expand if they get to hot, thus causing an open in your ignition system and shutting down your engine. much the same as driving down the highway and sudenly turning off your key.After a period of cool down you turn the key and the motor firers up right away because the coil cap has had a chance to cool down as well and cuntract to its original shape ounce again and is ounce again making proper contact,untill it gets to hot again and then the same thing will happen.Solution replace the coil half cap and wires to it.

When idling my jeep overheats. The cooling fan is running and it speeds up when temperature goes up. The temperature gets close to 260 degrees and the engine tries to stall. when I start moving it cools...


At idling speed an engine does build up a lot of heat and the cooling fan will kick in. In slow moving traffic or traffic jams the temperature gauge can touch the red - particularly on hot days. The reason it cools down when you start moving is because of the air flow through the radiator.

Presumably there are no leaks from the cooling system otherwise you would have mentioned it. In normal circumstances the fan will not be running as you are driving at speed, as the air-flow through the radiator is sufficient to cool things. The fan only kicks in to get rid of excess heat - and this usually occurs at idling speed or after you have parked the car.

If the fan is running all the time as you drive, this points to either a fault in the fan switch, or the car is running too hot. presumably in normal driving the fan isn't running and the temperature gauge reads normal?

It is common - in stationary traffic many cars overheat (particularly big engined models) try to stall and 'cut out'. Restarting can be difficult until the engine cools down.

Is your car overheating in normal driving conditions or just at idle speed? Overheating in normal driving conditions can be caused by things like a failing water pump, blocked radiator, collapsed hose, faulty thermostat or, in the worst case scenario, cylinder head problems.

Overheating at idling speed is 'common'. Check your coolant level. If your car isn't using/losing coolant then there probably is no major problem. You can flush out the cooling system and refill with new coolant - and also check your radiator. Are the cooling fins crumbling with age? Or maybe they're partly clogged with insects and debris from the road? A blast with a hosepipe wil sort that out ..

The question is how much does your car overheat in normal driving? If it doesn't .. it appears as though you have nothing to worry about as such. Most cars have 2 speed fans... the 2nd faster stage kicks in at some point dependant on engine temperature. Perfectly normal.

Starting problem with my 98' chevy metro


Use a carb-cleaner spray on the choke assembly, and give it a good work-out to free any sticking linkage.

If this doesn't get it, replace the auto-choke valve...when's the last time you changed the air filter?
Think about it when you're shopping.

*To test: When you park with a hot engine, pop the hood and flap the choke open about halfway and try a restart.

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool


My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.
