If you had any transmission repair done to the car check that they tighten the crankcase cencer down proper, some times the just start the bolt in and forget to tighten it, and you never know if it will start or not, also it will just stop running as you are driving or making a fast turn

Car starts and dies


Clean is required in the carburetor as well as this could also be due to water content in the fuel tank. Spark plug cleaning will also help.

2000 bonneville starts then dies. Check engine light on


Could be a number of things. If your car starts first thing in the morning and stalls shortly after, only to start again after it sits for an hour, it would be a classic example of a clogged catalytic converter. If it never starts back, I would check the fuel pressure, sounds to me like it could be a clogged fuel filter, faulty fuel pump relay or faulty fuel pump. If you have enough fuel pressure, check for a faulty coil, ignition module, or map sensor vacuum leaks.

Vapor locks


It could be a vapor lock but not likely. Since the introduction of fuel injection vapor lock has been eliminated.
You need to figure out if you are loosing fuel pressure or spark when it will not start back up. Could be a fuel pump relay or ignition module among other things. Even a problem with the vent for the gas tank.

The van stalls and dies when its hot outside.


try this it may work as i dont know your area, as im in uk but remove the air temp sensor on the filter box and see if that works, if it does it could just need replacing or you need a remap to the ecu as its reading the wrong signal. could even be a bad connection to the ecu so might just need a good clean on the ecu connector.

The engine on my 2000 MPV cuts out and dies when I press the accelerator. After it sits for an hour or so, I can travel for 20 min. or so before the problem starts again. HELP!


if its been a while change the fuel filter and then have the fuel pressure and volume checked.these symptoms are very common for a fuel pump problem.

It starts fine, runs good until the engine heats u...


Check to see if the radiator fan is coming on when the van gets hot.If it does not then on a 2.6 liter engine.look on the bottom part of the radiator on drivers side for a fan switch that could be bad and not letting the radiator fan to come on. On a 3.0 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the thermostat housing. And on a 3.3 liter and on a 3.8 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the front cylinder head. Anyone of these can cause the van to run hot and eventually die with no restart until the temperature has cooled down. Check the fan first with two jumper wires from the positive/negative post to the fan connector on a 2.6 liter engine (positive wire to open pin on plug,negative wire to insulated plug side. On all v6 engines hook jumper wires to motor. To the left side will be positive and negative to the right. Do not let both wires touch together while testing. If motor does not respond to direct wiring then replace it. Another thing to look at is the catalytic converter on van. Check the exhaust flow when the van is running cold and again when it gets hot. If the flow starts to slow down when the van gets hot then remove the converter(plugging up). After doing that run the van again to see if the van runs ok. Hope this will help you.
