Intermittent stalling


Two - from experience
1. Your fuel filter is 98% clogged - something sloshes around and it goes to 100% clogged and your stop. When you stop, that last 2% falls to the bottom of the filter. You fire it up and get going - repeat.
2. Your coil pack is bad and or the wires. The coil gets hot - plastic expands - begins to arc - and you stop

1 is more likely I think, especially if the service engine light is not on.

2002 taurus 3.0L OHV stalls when hot have replaced IAC,camshaft position sensor,fuel pump and there are no codes on engine stall occurs most often when slowing and turning


If you have to wait to restart its usually a faulty coil or ignition module.
Someone would need to troubleshoot the ignition system when the engine fails to start to proceed. Could be a faulty relay too.

The heater in my 2002 Fort Taurus only works for a few seconds then blows cold air. If i turn the heater off and wait a few minutes, it blows a few seconds of warm air when I turn the heater back on. Any...


Check to make sure your coolant is full. If it is carefully feel both of the hoses near the firewall that go to the heater core. Be careful the exhaust is right there and its HOT.
With the heater on both hoes should be about the same, if one is colder than the other you heater core is partially clogged and will need to be replaced or a shut off valve in the hose is not opening properly. I use a infrared digital thermometer so I don't have to reach in to check the temps.
Good luck

Ignition is locked, recently changed battery & now can not start truck. tried reseting alarm by unhooking battery, turned steering wheel also played w/ gear shifter to no avail. 2002 avalanche


Turn on the ignition with engine OFF.
Try to start engine, then release the key to ON
Wait 10 or more minutes till SECURITY TELLTALE turns OFF.
Turn OFF the ignition, wait 5 seconds.
Repeat this procedure 3 more times, it takes 30 minutes.
You must turn the ignition key OFF before starting the engine.
To be on the safe side OFF means take the key off, and hold on your hand for 5 seconds.
If you missed something visit GM dealer, and they gladly will provide you a print out of this procedure.

Stalling


Possibly faulty ignition module is the problem, stalls when engine is hot when you sit for a while it cools off and runs again until it heats up again, those are usually the symptoms of a bad ignition module and after a while it may give out all together and not run at all, usually if the module is at fault it shuts down the fuel pump so the engine don't load up with fuel, do to when engine continuously cranks over the injectors never stop squirting fuel and flood the engine do to lack of spark which is produced by the module, this could possibly be your problem.

My a/c turns off after a few minutes. I have to turn the switch on and off many times. Sometimes if I wait a few minutes it will kikc back on. It seems worse on hot days.


Start by recharging your system. If you want to do it yourself. Most auto parts stores and hardware stores have recharge kits. Purchase a kit with a gauge to prevent overfilling.
