Let me guess....... you are using regular 87 octane gas ? run it down to almost empty and fill it with super and see it it works you probably have about 100,000 miles on it the camshaft, lifters and valve springs, timing chain are all worn

Replaced thermostat and new coolant on 2004 suzuki forenza due to overheating problems doing driving on freeway or street as soon as i leave home. Problem stop one day then the next day i had some rough...


there are only 2 ways to overheat,
and vast causes !
1: engine making too much heat.
a: eg. cam/spark timiing way off. eg retarded timing does that.
2: Cooling system failure.

just 2. finding out which one takes tests.
I do my engine checks first.
A; compression. ok
b; timing right.
C: egr closing,
d: cat not melted closed down (huge backpressure, "guaged"

then when happy my engines happy,
I then attack the cooling system.
Thermostat new, and not put in wrong,
wax side to input side,RTM, bleed hole high (jiggle pin,etc)
I use an IR pyro gun $15 to check ALL rad tubes top and bottom
so see if one or more is clogged,, this is easy, ask.

does it over heat parked at a read light
does it never fail moving fast.
these are the top clues.
only fails A/C on?
fans all work, some have 3 on A/C cars up front.

the question is, , is the stalling caused by overheating or is only a victim. only you know that, as you are driving.
if you see bad running before the oveheat, then its just that.
is the car pinging?
engines that ping overheat and blow pistons.
engines that overheat can ping.
but in the latter, it overheats FIRST.
see?

Many older Ford products don't have anti knock sensor circuit so most likely your hearing your cylinder valve's death rattle. Higher OCTANE gas will help. Break a valve junk the car.

While drviing down freeway today the 2.5 ltr engine died and will crank but will not start. one month ago it was backfireing in intake and dieing on freeway and i thought i had bad gasoline it fixit


you need three main conponents for the engine to run,fuel,spark,compression . first have someone to crank the motor and put the spark plug lead of the plug and hold it near the block and if there is spark it will jump a inch or so, check the fuel filter , hold the fuel line clear of electirical and heat, crank engine , fuel will flow, when engine is running but running rough as a miss fire disconnect plug lead one at a time till you find missing cylinder

I have a 2003 ford focus that I have a pinging engine sound during acceleration or going uphill. The car also hesitates while driving at a steady speed on a flat road. It will also just stop (maybe 5-10...


Hello, Thomas. Check the knock sensor. This sensor is suppose to send signal to the computer if the engine start to knocking or pinging. The computer will change the setting on various other components to keep from doing this knocking or pinging. I remember in the older cars that weren't fuel injected but carbureted and had to burn high octane fuel. If one put low octane in the fuel tank the engine would knock/ping, and continue to run after the ignition was turned off. Try the knock sensor or do an diagnosis test on it. Look in your owner manual it tell how to self diagnosis test on you car. GB....stewbison

My ford escape stalled on me while driving i had just install a new alternator 1 month ago because it did the same thing


Check your coils on the spark plug, also check your EGR valve and Idle air control valve. Mine did the same thing and I had to replace the IAC, and EGR valve and replace to coils on the spark plugs

I got the code P0406 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor A Circuit High, from the emissions place. the person who started working on my car is in the hospital and i dont remember what sensor this is! it is on...


The term EGR stands for "exhaust gas recirculation." what it does is re-route all the unburned exhaust gases in the combustion chamber to the intake manifold to get reburned. Now, that being stated, you DO NOT need EGR at idle, only driving at higher speeds. Such as freeways and high ways. IT will most certainly affect the way your engine runs. It will cause sort of a miss fire condition. The solution here, in my opinion, would be to replace the EGR Solenoid and BOTH gaskets. One should be a cork gasket and the other steel. Replace the gaskets and the EGR Solenoid, should get rid of the problem. To save some money, you can try to remove the EGR Solenoid and clean it thoroughly with brake cleaner and try to reinstall it. This may only be a temporary fix though. If it does work and the light comes on again, then you know for sure you need to replace the EGR Solenoid. good luck!

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak, a problem with the wiring, or a bad PCM. Check wiring for pinched, chafed, pierced, or broken wires. Make sure vacuum supply is good, and not collapsing when the vehicle is running. Beyond that, a trip to the dealer may be in order.

Dodge Ram 2500 engine ping


Your ignition timing may have advanced too far. Or it is now where it should be and is making more cylinder pressure during combustion causing the gasoline to ignite to early causing detonation or ping.

Make sure the ignition timing is correct. If it is try better fuel meaning the octane rating.

If you can go up to the next octane level. For example if you are using 87 go to 89 and see if it goes away. 3 of my wife's last cars a 1986 Honda Prelude, 2000 Neon, and a 2003 Neon had some ping under medium to hard acceleration. She switched to 89 octane and the ping went away completely in each vehicle. Each of the vehicle had a good deal of miles on them.

The 2003 Neon has 75000 miles on it now and runs great on 89 octane. About a year ago I tried 87 Octane in her car and the ping came right back.
