Overheating issue which is making the car management system go into limp mode ...check the dash when this happens...there should be a yellow icon flashing whilst it slows and lurches....if it is doing this get it to a garage where they can do OBD checks to read the error codes off the cars ecu.most likely oil sensor or temp gauge for cooling system is causing this as it seems to correct once the car/ truck is allowed to cool down.if it was fuel then this would happen almost straight away.

Could be carb but you should also look and make sure the fuel supply line is not running near the exhaust manifold or anywhere it could experience high temps as it may be boiling the gas in the line and could be "vapor locking" the fuel line. After it cools, the vapor dissipates and the unit has plenty of liquid gas then. Also check the manual fuel pump if it has one and make sure it is not faulting. The diaphragm could be getting weak and the engine heat could be causing it ti get soft and lose it's ability to draw fuel. Good Luck!

Camshaft position sensor had a recall last year and was a notorious problem. If you have the money and do not want to wait you can buy the part yourself and swap it out with a 10 mm socket. Call Ford dealer and see if you can bring it in.

SOURCE: truck will start and run

From personal experience, that sounds like you might have a clogged fuel filter. a couple of bucks at an auto shop is a good investment. If that isnt the problem you need to get the fuel pressure checked, preferably on the fuel rail to check for possible leaking. A decent mechanic shop will do this if you no problem.

Thunderbird Starts Fine and after say 25 min drive on the highway. pull into lets say walmart run in back out and the car struggles to start bucking and such and usually stalls and wont start.. after it...


Sounds as if you are experiencing early stages of fuel pump failure. The pump motor is getting "hot" during the 25 minute drive. After you shut the car off and try to restart it,the pump is weak and not getting the fuel pressure up enough to allow for a quick start and smooth running. I would check the bleed down time on the fuel system and the pressure to see what it is before and after the 25 minute drive time.

You are likely experiencing vapor lock. Changing gasoline grade, or getting a vented gas cap may help.

My max has 166K miles and was running fine. My daughter started it and it would not go above 2000 rpm and was running rough, then it just quit. I checked spark, battery, replaced fuel pump and fuel...


This is why we do not let girls drive..... OKAY just kidding.

I suggest that you chech the pickup filter and the normal fuel filter for contamination.

Replace the coolant sensor. If the system were to decide that it is too hot, it can shut down, after the "limp home" mode runs out.

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...


Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.

1992 gmc sierra turbo diesel starts and idles fine until warm up


It's time for a Italian tune up!

The blue smoke can be one of two thing.

oil drop from the valve stem (from engine head to cyclinders)
or
diesel soot collect inside the exhaust system.

===
I will take a 5-10 minutes high rpm (not redline) ran on the highway.
Pay close attention to the rear view mirror and look for black diesel soot.
=== I will use Diesel Cleen or similar product to condition the fuel. (keep moisture down)
Use the recommended amount of SEAFOAM oil additive to condition the valve stem seal/rubber parts.

I can not rule out excessive blown by.
Can you get a diesel compression tester?
When was the last valve adjustment?

Please post the actual odometer on the engine and I will follow up on it.
