2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after

2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after running for a few minutes, then wouldn't start until cool again. Now it won't start at all. Replaced the ECM(computer, coil, fuel pump and screen, and fuel filter. Has gas and a spark? I was told that having the timing set too high may be a cause?

89 cierra? It should be DIS ignition so you can't have the timing too high. You said it has fuel and spark. Fuel pressure and injection pulse. Does it try to start if you spray carb cleaner into it?

    2.8 engines are good for having bad injectors causing a no start hot. If the resistance of the injectors is wrong the computer will shut down and injector resistance will change when they are hot. Resistance check the injectors. They should be 11.7 to 12.3 ohms. If any of them aren't it won't start.

Car loses power for short time after normal running and cooling down for ten minutes


sounds to be symptomatic of a CTS (coolant temperature sensor). there are two, one is for the interior temp gauge, the other is for the ECU/PCM while both are basicalty the same part, often even the same P/N, they both do extremely different things.

Try getting your transmission solenoid replaced. After I got mine replaced it ran fine after that. That's the exact same thing my Lumina was doing.

Chevy 2000 Silverado 1500, the engine stalls and won't start until it has cooled off.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ?

Engine dies while idling, then car won't start for a few minutes


One possibility is a blocked fuel line or filter. It basically runs out of fuel and you have to wait for it to come through slowly. The other possibility is the ignition system is losing spark as something heats up. You have to wait until it's cooled down before it runs again.

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.
I wouldn't do a fuel pump without more information.
