On hot days when I stop for gas, I shut the car

Example: On hot days when I stop for gas, I shut the car off, fill the tank, get back in the car and it won't start. When the engine cools off, it starts right up. Last night it left me sit at Best Buy. I went by this morning and it started right up.

Fuel pump worn out and is weak, when the fuel is warm the pump expands and the fuel pressure is good. When the colder gas is added or when the gas has cooled down the fuel pump.
The pump can not create enough pressure to run the fuel injector due to the piston and sleeve in the pump are worn out, you might get another year if you lucky by replacing your fuel filer.
Start with the simple and replace your fuel filter and check your fuel pressure readings at the shredder valve on your fuel injector rails. You should have i think 56 PSI to run them properly.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

How do I bleed the cooling system on a 1992 Isuzu Rodeo?

engine cooling not A/C cooling of humans...
fill it slowly at rad.
with the hightest hose removed at one end.
not put it back. (hose)
repeat with rad cap off. filling,,, AF. (antifreeze is AF)
get the rad full of 50% AF
cap off, start engine and stop it when the coolant starts to overflow.
if the coolant drops add some now. running.
if it overfills. good, that normal (hot AF expands pure physics)
then cap the rad.
drive around block.
come back park .
let it cool, and check cap level at rad neck
add AF to fill
then drive around block again. and check cold again.
is it now stable, its ready to rock. (drive)
if it is not , there is a problem.

if now good, put the correct level in side overfill tank.
make sure all hoses there are good.

this is an art form , no engine stated, here, just Rodeo
there are 4 engine here, in uSA. for one car.

but my answer above covers most engines.
but there are some exceptions on some...
the thermostat must have the bleed (jiggle pin,etc) on the up hill side. on all engines. or it will be hard to bleed.

just dont drive a long ways until, the cold rad proves (cap off)
that it is really full.
then get the side tank working, with the hoses good so it
can suck back AF when cold, or it will drop each day. driven.

I have a 97 nissan sentra ive ran out of gas 3 times this month and the last time i ran out of gad i filled it and drove it for a while that day then it shut off and wont start no more

more like fuel pump damaged. gasoline keeps fuel pump cool and lubricated if fuel tank run empty fuel pump will over heat which will destroy it. never run out of gas.fuel filter will get plugged with debris from fuel tank when tank runs empty all sediment botton tank will break up stop up fuel filter.

Where is the radiator cap to add stop leak

Lift the hood. In the upper right hand corner is the overflow fill tank. If you want to put it in fast reach down the right side of the radiator(when it's cool) unscrew the small plastic petcock and drain a gallon or two of antifreeze into clean pan. Replace petcock. Open the cap on tank and add stop leak. Fill back up with antifreeze. Now would be a good time to change it. Go to Napa and buy the original antifreeze the car came with Zerex G5. Mix 50/50 with distilled water.Fill to just above cold line and start engine keep adding mixture till it won't go down any more. Replace cap and watch level for two or three days of driving add mixture after engine is cold12_2_2011_3_42_50_pm.gif

Put unleaded in a diesel car

as long as you didnt put in more than 30% of the tank capacity,just fill to the top with diesel.then fill again when 1/2 empty.
you will have a hot start problem so try to let the engine cool before restarting and do not use it for stop/start trips until empty.also DO NOT use full throttle or climb steep hills in too high a gear.
just to clarify.....the us/canadian army use gas in the diesel tanks in arctic conditions to stop the fuel from freezing......there engines cost 1/2 $million ......

What is the coolant fill procedure for a 2007 Pontiac G6 3.5

I assume you are gearing for a overhaul of the coolant... in that case here goes.
Once you get to the point were you will be filling it, fill it to the cold line first and first make sure you have enough mixed new antifreeze on-hand to fill it to spec. Keep the tank cap off. Turn the heat on full HOT (low fan) and start the car. Keep an eye on the coolant level and add while the car is running to keep it somewhat near the cold line. Once you determine that you are not adding anymore coolant, shut down the engine and be prepared to add more coolant because it may drop when the car engine stops. If after a series of engine start/stops there is no more coolant needed and it's at the correct fill mark, screw the tank cap back on nice and snug and open the throttle a little more. Make sure heat is coming from vents to indicate circulation and a purge of air in the heater core and make sure the level doesn't drop too much. Drive a few miles and back and then shut the car off and allow to cool for several hours. Check the level once more and top off if needed(put cap back on).This should do it.

Car problems.

Ok first you must stop allowing the fuel to get low keeit at least 1/2 tank at all times because the fuel covering the fuel pump in the tank cools it and makes it last longer remember this: its much easier to fill up the top half of the fas tank than the bottom half and cheaper too here in Wa state gas is still 4$ for reg and $4.80 for premium anyway
The fast that it starts right back up makes this problem much more broad as to what it can be. Because if it were a electronic module it would have to cool a bit before it would start. Does it Idle excessivly low now as compared to the way it used to? Theck for vacuum hoses adn caps (small plugs on the drivers side rear of the top of the engine make sure none are missing or cracked to a point where there is a hole.
Also check the air intake hose for any cracks or holes rake it off and clex it and inspect closly make sure its on completely and the clamps are tight
Does this problem happen if the fuel is half or more full if tou don't know fill it up and see and keep it more than half all the time
