Hi there my mazda etude 160i wont start at normal operating temp must leave for few minutes then will start again


When you shut off a fully warmed up engine, the temp rises as all water circulation has stopped. This extra high temp can cause electronic parts to fail which then work again as they cool. Somewhat rare, but possible coil/module or crank/cam sensor issue. Also may have leaky injectors which bleed down when you stop and flood the engine. Sitting lets excess fuel evap and then will start again. Just my thoughts.

Why does my heat blow warm air then it turns cold


its VERY likely that your heater core is getting stopped up.

The heater in your car works by circulating hot water from the engine into a copper or aluminum pipe coiled up in the dashboard. The heater/airconditioner's fan blows across it and the hot air comes out of the vents. This is why the heater doesn't work right away when you first start the car. It usually won't work until the hot/cold needle in the gauges is starting to rise up.

If your mechanic recently replaced the thermostat, its possible that there is air in the system which will result in less antifreeze in the car than it should be. If this is not the case, the heater core is probably stopping up and will require expensive replacement if it cannot be flushed clean.

Check to make sure the car is full of antifreeze IN THE RADIATOR, AND THE OVERFLOW JUG. Please be very sure there is NO AIR in the cooling system as well.

I have trouble starting my 2007 HHR upon initial start-up. it sputters but after a few seconds of that it starts to run fine. I can stop somewhere turn it off and crank it again and it starts fine seems...


this could be a bad fuel pump that has a problem from sitting over night or when it cools down enough.the armature in the pump may be worn and when its cold it has a hard time turning the pump because of it being worn and when it gets warmed up enough the clearance is closer than when cold and works fine.

My 1992 lexus es 300 overheats after i get off the freeway. the temp gauge sits in the normal position until i get off the freeway. i run the heat on hot and at full blast regardless of the temp outside...


Sounds like you could be low on coolant, even more so because the air starts to cool down, check coolant level with engine cold, never open a radiator when hot.

My car still stop all of a sudden without any warning and then it will have a little bit of a hard time starting.


If it starts fine when cold or will restart after it cools down and run until the engine warms up, have your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) replaced. I have seen quite a few lately that will "warm" up and cause the car/truck to gradually run rougher as the engine compartment heats up and once it sits and cools off will restart and run again. You can go to auto zone, advance auto, etc and have them run a free diagnostic test on your car and tell you for sure if any TPS trouble codes are stored

Heater fan works, anti freeze full. heater does not generate hot air. plenty of warm air, just not hot air, no matter what the temp setting is.


it sounds like the thermastat needs replacing .it might be worn .so it is not closing .check the heater hoses .if they both are hot the heater core is blocked

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?
