No, there are a lot of people here with decades of experience, who enjoy being able to help other people.

When you see lousy posts, it is usually because the person asked a lousy question that they should have looked up themselves.

I didnt ask about a car or truck,i was asking about the damn thermostat and YADAYADA DOESNT KNOW **** about the thermostats. NO,NOT HELPFUL AND YOUR SITE SUCKS!

yadayada has a lot of useful information to impart but it makes it difficult for all of us when you post your question in the wrong catagory ( cars and trucks ) and then expect us to know what you are on about
it is not the site that sucks but the quality of the information supplied along with your question.
and yes cars and trucks use thermostats as well

Ran it out of gas, now runs fine cold, as soon as its warm starts hard, and stalls when put in drive

Is the \'Service Engine Soon\' light on? Only from what you described, it sounds like the engine\'s running in \'open loop\' (fast idle, cold) okay, then when it\'s supposed to go into \'closed loop\', you have a malfunction. Checking the trouble codes will pinpoint the problem; your truck is pre-\'95 so it\'s the older OBD-I and you could get the trouble codes by grounding the proper terminal in the ALDL, counting the blinks of the SES light and using it to determine what electronic control device is malfunctioning. If no SES light/trouble codes and since you ran out of gas (?), it might be time to replace the fuel filter and possibly check the fuel pressure and/or fuel pump.

Repair ecm

why start with the most expensive part that is never bad.?
I5 engine. 4 cylinders. high MPG or high liters/100km

instead, why not check:
  1. CEL lamp glows running? oops. PCM is unhappy.
  2. no matter scan it. scan it with a obd2 scan tool (USA CAR?)
  3. first make sure the engine thermostat reaches 180F. more.
  4. then see if EFI holds closed loop mode,status at hot idle.
  5. If not we fix that 1st.
  6. Then we drive. and make sure at light flat cruise, closed loop holes. if not we fix that.
not guessing, just statistics.
1: fuel pressure i too high, , fuel reg stuck.
2: leaking injectors.
3: ECU stuck in limp home mode, and sucking fuel and has bad sensors.
4: exhaust pipe newer front oxygen sensor cracked, (sucks fuel now)
no cracks allows, or a bad oxy sensor here.
bank1 sensor 1 , replace at 100k miles for best L/km.
5: thermostat bad. runs cold .
6: FAILED to to the 100km tune up. bad. deal there.

there are simple tests in each case.

2005 LeSabre closed loop temperature?

Most cars go into closed loop around 160.. Maybe a little higher.. You could go online to a racing site to buy a lower temp thermostat.. Good luck.

My Pilot's Check Engine Light is on and it gives a P2279 code when I check it. I have replaced the intake manifold gaskets and the injector base gaskets, but that hasn't worked. What else can I do?

Got 100k miles on it? ever run crappy fuel additives that can wreck a good 02 sensor?
LOTS ! if motivated. (are you asking for wild guessing?)
what engine size?
first off read the FSM , for your car and year. it covers this DTC.
P2279 intake leaks or PCV. it stated on 0bd2 scan code pages.
but in the FSM , there is far more, why not read that..???
it tells you the conditions before the test, and what it measure.
both are big clues to why?
the freeze frame , you didth post that,, it tells you all conditions
related to 2279, at the instant of failure.
1: speed, rpm,. and load.
2: in closed loop:
3: sensor reading an the one that was wrong.
you dont have a real scan tool or just useless code reader?

with the freeze frame in hand, id drive and log data.
my scan tool ( and palmer software) $200? investment. (paid back zillion times?)
i can log scan, driving and see all condition during the drive
before and after the 2279 (im assuming you reset it and it repeats per OBD2 protocols.)

my first test are like this.
1: engine warms fast to over 180F and holds. ECT reading, PIDS.
PIDS are live data from sensors. in full view
2: as it warms, parked, at idle my engine goes to closed loop real fast (by virtue of 02 heaters )
3: my engine is now 100% hot and fully warm and it idle
its in closed loop and the LTFT is at -4%
not -40 nor +40
the natural engine tune is 4%rich closed loop sucks out -4% to reach STOICH) if not a new 02 sensor at 100k miles. all this is whistling in the dark, if the 02 fibs and reads rich for STOICH
then it goes lean, or in your case, the O2 Fibs(old or poised)
the 02 reads lean and had to add tons of fuel to correct it.
i dont have a 2005 fFS to see 2279.
it will flat say something like, +35% LTFT (lean) trips 2279s.
my guess, is that 2279 is what I call the LTFT (rail fail)
all newer OBD2 cars have this RAIL fail trips
the EFI can control +(-) 40% more more, but over a lower number range it trips too rich or too lean , as an early warning.

I watch CLOSED loop like hawk , idling hot and med. speed driving hot engine, no hills. steady right foot , be darn sure
that CLOSE LOOP holds there?
if not fix idle CL bad first.
if not fix cruise CL bad next.

IMO , at 100k why not put in $20 O2 sensor, (ask for sources)
or splurge and buy the PNP BOSCH, at any store, just front sensor, not rear. (pnp is plug-n-play) just plugs in , no wiring as in my $20 cheap skate ways.

a bad PCV can be blocked, or stuck wide open.
or the PCV hose cracked sucking in lots of oxygen (illegal oxy btw on the vac side)
the PCV meters , (checkvalve and orifice) piston ring gasses (bypassed from the rings , products of combustion) so no air leaks or bad valve is allowed or idle air mix can be wrong.)
PCV can fail 3 ways, jammed check valve. stuck open, or air leaks. (all have bad consensuses, jammed causes oil leaks.)

many times, we get lean at idle, and can not find the air leak.
(shows a +30% LTFT)( long term fuel trim (trend))
and out comes the smoke machine, (great skills need to use it.
as some leaks are normal and others not, very hard)

i hope this helps. you. and others,

Lift gate suction stopped working, any ideas?

It can be faulty switch or its issue with lift gate latch. Its got stuck up hard or cracked inside. It has to be inspected. -----------
