    The same thing is happening to my daughter's Taurus it will not do it when I drive it so I do not know what all happens when it dies except she says it is running fine and then it just shuts off and will not start any where from between 30 minutes to over night.

Air runs until car runs a distance and engine is shut down. when restart air is not cool?


Well of course not. When you shut the car down, all water circulation stops so engine heat goes way up. This means the radiator gets hot too, and therefore so does the AC condensor. It takes time for all these things to cool back down when you start it back up.

Why did my blazer get hot while i was driving and when i step on the gas it does not want to go very good


Sounds like the thermostat has failed in the cooling system or coolant is very low, causing overheating and when overheating the engine fires early (pre-detonation) causing the engine to buck and loose power. the cooling system needs to be checked as soon as possible as either condition can cause serious engine damage to total engine failure.
the check engine light should also be on.

Why won't 1999 vw beetle restart when hot


More detail is needed. Does the engine crank but will not start? How long will it take to cool down and restart after the engine has been warm and shut off? Does it attempt to fire but not stay running, or just crank without any sign of ignition (engine attempting to start)?

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox. During the day after it's been sitting, when you first crank it the a/c blows hot. But once you get rolling at a good speed it cools down. BUT, when you stop at a red...


This sounds like your cooling fan is not running. If you were to stop too long with with the engine idling it would overheat the engine. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this is a very serious issue. I can have a number of causes, like bad cooling motor, bad wiring or conectors, bad relay, open fuse, etc. Please have it diagnosed and repared before it overheats the engine and possibly damages the engine. If you are stopped in trafic you can place the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. When trafic restarts you can restart the engine and place the transmission in drive again and continue. I hope this helps.

Have a 1993 toyota paseo it keeps running hot change out radiator and house it does not have a tremostate could that be making it run hot


An explanation of the cooling system.
You start your car, it is cold at first. The thermostat is shut. Car warms up and raises the temperature of the coolant in the engine block. Thermostat opens up. Water from the radiator (cool) is exchanged for water from the engine block (hot) The cool water causes the thermostat to shut. This traps the hot water in the radiator so that it can be cooled down. The cool water that was exchanged for the hot water, now becomes the hot water because it is in the engine block. It heats up until it's temperature causes the thermostat to open again, exchanging cool water for hot water. If you have no thermostat, then you will never hold water inside your radiator. You have to hold it there to allow it to cool off, then it becomes useful to cool your engine. So, yes put a thermostat back in it, and please vote as to whether this was helpful or not.

Radiator coolant


first question is after you changed your hose and refilled while the car was running with the radiator cap locked but loose with the heater on high and set on hot run the car till the thermostat opens shut the car down once it does anti freeze level will drop and air will rise and (extreme caution taken with drain pan below ) start the car use two people run it shut it down let air escape threw cap start again run a couple of minutes shutdown again let cool down take cap off restart car with cap off watch radiator level will somone lightly increases gas peddle refill level to top reinstall cap completely tight then let idle down some vehicles have a small bleeder mounted in the thermostat houseing or in line with the radiator circulation system
