You may have a failing cam sensor. This part, if it fails, has the symptom that the vehicle won't start until the engine cools down from normal operating temperature.

Sounds like your overheating and the Temp Gauge or the Engine Temp sensor isn't working correctly. If it is an overheating issue it could be the Thermostat or the water pump or your low on Radiator fluid. Remove the thermostat and make sure the radiator is full and see if that resolves the problem. If it doesn't that only leaves the Water Pump or Temp sensor causing the problem.

Start very well in the morning and when engine is cold once I drive it and stop it won't start it will just crank and I have to wait until the engine is cold then it will start smoothy


All signs point strongly to a failing fuel pump
They often go out when they get hot, and begin to work again when they cool down. Telltale sign.

Oil pressure drops and truck shuts off


I have to ask if you are sure the oil pressure drops first, or the engine stops first. The engine would stop if the oil pressure dropped below 5psi but only because the fuel pump would shut off. And it should start back up if that were the reason.
If something such as a relay or the ignition module is getting hot and killing the engine, it might have to cool down before it restarts. And the engine would stop then the oil pressure would drop to zero.

I have a 94 mustang with an electric fan. The fan works perfectly when i start the car and its cold. when the temp of the water gets up to about 185 the fan kicks on . it can idle all day and the fan works...


is the car running hot? some cooling fans never come on going down the road because the air comjng through the front of the vehicle keeps the car cool enough that it doesn't need to come on. but if it is overheating then you may want to check the cooling fan relay.

Car starts but after running awhile will stop in the road while driving?


This could be almost anything. Does the engine turn but not start when it stops? If so, can you determine if the engine is getting gas?

If you leave it for a while, does it then start and run for a while? If so, a very common problem is the electronic ignition pickup coil. This is the part that replaced points in the distributor. They develop an open when they get hot and when they cool down the connection is made again. This makes the car run until it gets hot and runs again when it cools down.

The good news is the pick up is not very expensive or difficult to change.

Best of luck, Jim

I need to replace my thermostat and i can't find where it is I have a 93 Tercel. The car heats up while it's sitting but when I start driving down the road it cools down and doe's not heat up until I stop...


I think ur THERMOSTAT is fine! The prblem of heating up would be the RADiATOR FAN MOTOR, 'cause engine cool down when ur speeding u, means theres a cold RAM AiR flowing in front of ur car and its cooling down the radiator!
You have to go to ur garage mechanic and have them check wuts wrong w/ ur RADiATOR FAM MOTOR!
Nice to help somebody!
