I have a 2001 Saturn L300, when the engine gets hot but not overheating and I stop my car dies. takes about twenty minutes and will restart. I can go about ten blocks and it starts all over.


Check the electric fans and see if the are coming on. If not check fuses and relays. It goes as far as the ECM which controls the fans.

Jeep was overheating, Now leaking transmision fluid and won't start


I don't see how leaking transmission fluid would be connected to the engine overheating, unless the radiator blew up.
You'll need to figure out why it won't start to proceed.
Check for spark and fuel pressure, and of course compression.
Is the check engine light on ?

Hi,
Looks like an overheating transmission or blocked fluid filter.
Replace the transmission filter and check the fluid by looking at the color and smelling it, if it smells burned, drain the AT fluid and replenish it with new one.
Hope that helps!

MY 2003 CARAVAN RAN HOT FOR A PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE IT DIED. I GOT IT RESTARTED AND COULD DRIVE FOR A FEW MILES BEFORE IT DIED AGAIN. NOW IT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS TICKING OR KNOCKING. WHAT COULD THIS BE?


You need to have it checked by a mechanic! It sounds like the engine got so hot, which is why it died, that the engine is now damaged and needs major repairs. Running an engine while it is overheating causes irreversable engine damage. So if you car is running hot or overheating shut it off right away and seek help or repair before the damage can occur.
