Question about 1999 Chevrolet Astro

1 Answer

When the temp. outdoors is 100 degrees or more my 1999 astro sputters and dies as if there is a vapor lock. If you have to stop for any time when you step on the gas it acts like its chocking and stalls but it will idle ok turn it off for a few mins. and it will start and go for about another two miles unless you have to stop again

Where do find the vapor lock on my 1999 Buick century


Vapor lock occurs when the gas in a fuel line turns from liquid to vapor, before it reaches the engine. The first signs of vapor lock are normally when your engine begins to run roughly. The engine may sputter and hesitate. It will then stall completely and refuse to restart. It may seem like the car is out of gas or the fuel pump has failed. While these are possibilities, vapor lock may be the problem.

Vapor locks


It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.

Blazer will not have fuel present when quits over 100 degees.


Vapor lock it sounds like.
you could try an electric fuel pump, but you should have fuel pressure regulator and pump and relay tested.

Sounds like a vaccum problem, but I am not sure. It is not vapor locking on you is it? Maybe your fuel pump? A lot of possibilities.

2004 Cadillac Escalade Engine Stalling when idling in hot weather


Given your high guage temps of 210 degrees and high ambient temperature of 100 degrees, your engine's stalling can very likely be linked to either one of these three causes: 1) vapor lock; 2) percolation; or 3) PCV malfunction. Here's a really good diagnostic article that precisely addresses this issue of yours:
