Engine will die after warmed up


depends on what you mean by "warmed up". If you mean engine reaches normal working temprature and works normally then cuts out , but restarts wwithin 5 minutes and then carries on working normally until it cuts out again, and then restarts withing minutes...have the throttle position sensor checked. It may be that you have a warning code on the dash?
It might be the pedal position sensor alternatively.
If your engine works ok until fully warmed up this may be the problem.
If there are any symptoms before the cut out happens can you please add the details and repost thwe query

If I'm not mistaken it takes more pressure to crank than to run.

2002 Jeep Liberty - 3.7 Liter - Engine has begun to die when rpm is at or near idle. Such as pulling into a parking place or stopped at traffic light. More frequent after engine has warmed. Once engine...


I would start with cleaning the throttle bore and plate. Then clean the Idle Air Control valve, IAC, as this is the device that controls idle speed. Use a can of spray carb cleaner and an old toothbrush. Trouble with the IAC would make sense if you can keep the engine going by holding down the gas pedal a bit.
Use the carb cleaner to check for vacuum leaks at hose connections and elbows. run engine and spray short bursts at hoses and listen for idle speed changes.
And lastly if problem is still there check MAP sensor.

Making a loud ticking sound....when you stop at a stop sign or red light the auto wants to die....it will restart however it will die again.


This sounds like your valves are out of adjustment, or you may have a collaped lifter. If you have never worked with valves, I wouldn't advise you trying to do it yourself.

96 Stratus wont restart after it is warmed up, dealership has changed distributor, computer, crank pos sensor, coolant sensor, oxygen sensor


What about the spark control Module? Sometimes when these get hot they either run rough or die and won't restart until it cools down.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!
