As for the engine problem, try replacing the 02 sensor,then check the e.g.r. valve in the intake and resetting the computer,the blower motor problem could be a fuse or the high speed relay,if it only runs on high then it could be the resistor card behind the dash that controls low and medium speeds

You need to get the trouble codes out of the computer first. Take it to your local autoparts store and they can hook up a scan tool and retreive codes this give you a general area start looking for the problem.

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.

My volkswagon 1999 sputters and dies all the service lights came on and thats when it started...it still starts but it runs rough....and sputters....erspecially when you take your foot off the gas...it...


does it run well if the engine is warm? if it does it is most probably the water temperature sensor, if not try disconnecting the Air Flow Meter (5/6 pin plug located just after the air filter) and see if it runs better if it does change the a/f meter and post the results.

When the temp is cold 40 or below my grand prix won't stay running, its like the carborator is over loading. I can be driving and have to let of the accelarator and it will just die. If I try to warm it...


I'd concentrate my time & money,( $15.00 ) on ECT, "engine coolant temperature sensor" If your V6, is a 3.8, and not a 3.1 then it should be located (threaded in ) right below your throttle body at intake/block area. My guess is the sensor is telling the ECM that engine is already warm, thus only delivering enough fuel for a warmed up engine. Once engine is warm, all's well.

Car stalls at time when coming to a stop


Sounds like a vacuum leak, i would check that first

Engine dies at 150 degrees.


sounds like its not accident related, more like a idle air control motor or something of that nature, ive also herd of this happening when the crank sensor is going bad, it warms up and starts missing the signal.
