    the head gaskets are blown and likely the engine cylinders scored, find the cause of the overheating and replace the engine.

Windstar runs then dies then starts back up


At best, this would really be hard to find, since you can drive it hours before it happens. You could start by pulling all the fuses one at a time check them and put them back in. This gets rid of corrosion contact problems. You can also do the to all the plugs. Sounds like you have a heat up problem. Some thing in the electrical system is getting hot and loosing contact. Things that would kill the engine would be , the ignition switch, the map sensor, the mass air flow sensor, And the engine control module. Parts inside of these can heat up enough to loose contact. Your's is going to be a hard one to find. Until the part completely dies.

Why does my 93 Honda Accord run fine and then dies going down the road and will start again and die again?


There is a black fuel relay way up under the top left driver side dash that breaks its main wire solder connections on the circuit board under over-heat conditions. Resolder that relay. Starting fluid will show that you have lost fuel delivery under no start conditions. You can use the breather hose from the valve cover for this test.

Car dies starts back up runs then dies again


check your ignition coil for cracks. i had the same problem. when the coil heats up it expands thus causig a break in the windings. it cost me $300 to find this out.

Dies when the car heats up


Check for blockage in the radiator. Flushing the cooling system will not fix a partially plugged radiator. Replace radiator with new to repair problem.
