Man i have this problem too! Your engines overheating. It says, High Motor Temperature too right? Its fucked up how it just stops no matter where you are. Hectic Downtown, Highways, Middle of Access roads. Just to name a few of my experiences this past week. I hate Ford for that.

You should check your coolant if you haven't had it changed. Check if the fans are running. Do you have a leak? Check the two coolant resevoirs under the hood on the bottom left. The front one is for the engine and radiator cooling, the back resevoir is for the Motor Electronics cooling. If there's fluid in there, try changin it with new coolant, 50/50 mix for both resevoirs. Don't use any Life extending additives. Make sure the fluid you get is **** yellow not orange. Once you've had that changed, and it still does it, could be a stuck thermostat.

Haven't fixed mine yet. Good luck with yours!

Engine is shutting down going down road on 2004 Columbia freighliner with Detroit engine. Only message is EnG.

The ENG is for as group of codes that logged on and turn on both the check engine and stop engine lights this alerts the operator to stop the engine before damage occurs
having that done the engine control module probably shuts the engine down in case the operator ignores the warning or doesn't see it
contact a detroit service center for an explanation of the warning and what it refers to
it may not be as I said but then to ask will save heaps of money if I am right

It's shutting off while driving the red triangle show up it tell me to to safely now and shut completely off why does it do that

I think its telling you to stop the engine as safely as you can, such as not in heavy traffic. If the engine computer sees the engine is running too hot it will shut it down to prevent damage.
Have you checked the radiator and is the cooling fan working ?

Why all of sudden the engine shut down for 2001 325ci bmw??

If your engine warning lights on, then it might be an Ignition Control Module(ICM) issue, where the signals are getting crossed and the engine ends up shutting down. When this happens usually all of the 'engine warning lights' go on. I did a quick search online and if you need to replace your ICM this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

Knock sensor for Honda 1998 Accord LX

Duplicate question.
I doubt the sensor would make the engine stop running. The computer would slow down the spark timing to prevent engine knock, but not shut it off.

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?

You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.
