When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

Car shaking on start-up... slight temperature problem

Could be plug fouling out from leaky fuel injector flooding engine when you shut it down, then clears after running some, however, running hot is not a good sign and could point to head gasket leak. Many other possibilities too, but I would start with examination of spark plugs.

2002 Pontiac gran prix engine stall while stopping, then it will restart but runs really rough like its misfiring, but then whn givin any gas or shifted from park or neutral it dies again.

Please include engine and mileage to help with answers. There is a sensor in the tube connecting the air box to the throttle body. Map, mass air flow sensor. It is delicate and pricey. The auto parts has a aerosol can of cleaner for about 8$ designed to clean this part. Carefully remove it from the tube housing and spray it off with the cleaner. This cleaner will attack the plentum and tube melting it causing air leaks if you use it in the tube. On a 3800 If you have coolant leaks or seeping check the plenum it may need to be replaced if it has not already been. They have a new style that is reinforced. This should smooth out the idle and clear up stalling if it's dirty. Air leaks can also cause an unstable idle and stalling at stop signs. Anti freeze can turn corrosive and should be changed. I change mine about every 3 or 4 years. Make sure if your engine contains aluminum parts ( block or heads) that you use the correct antifreeze when refilling or adding to existing levels. Green or orange. Read the label to make shure the product is correct for your car.

98 civic, erngine light comes on, and it stalls. turns on in min

Change fuel filter to start with. It sounds like it could be partly clogged. If no change, change plugs and wires. I'm not sure what you mean by the "rumble strip" thing, unless it's shaking as a result of one cylinder not firing, and causing a shaking feeling. A dead plug or wire would also cause loss of power and stalling. Let me know what you find.

Bmw 325i 2003 stall

Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

Slipping transmission when hot

Check the fluid level and make sure it is up.If o/k then suggest a trans service which will have the filter and fluid changed. This could be your problem.

1999 olds alero stalls when put in gear

Runs fine when not put in gear? Sounds like transmission is stuck in "lock-up". Need to go to transmission or full automotive shop for repair. This is not something you want to attempt on your own unless you are experienced with removing valve bodies and solenoids from the inside of transmissions.
