Quits when hot

My car quits while I;m driving and after it cools down it will start back up. I can only drive it for about 10 mns then it quits. I've replaced the fuel pump & control module. Any suggestions?

Passat losing power when driving, all lights on dash come on, then the lights go back off. If I turn car off won't start acts like battery is dieing, what 30 min or so than car turns on. Drive a few miles...


This could also be a faulty fuel pump relay. I had a Honda Prelude that would not restart when hot, but if I let the engine bay cool down for 10 minutes, it would start no problem.

The hot air from the vents begins to cool down when the vehicle is stopped or slows down.


sounds like a possible plugged heater core, restricting the flow of coolant. those require a special tool to remove, quick disconnect, just remove both hose from the heater core and back flush the heater core with a garden hose, NOTICE DO NOT DO THIS WHILE HOT IT WILL BURN YOU, this can make a mess, flush it both ways untill it flows clean and with even pressure, then refill the coolant and road test the vehicle to see if is changed.

Good chance fuel pump is getting hot and has to cool down before pumping back up to required pressure. I had to test fuel pressure when cool, then when hot to catch drop in pressure. Are you having any problems with how far you can drive before it quits, or starts to get sluggish?

Car runs hot. Its 2005 grand prix


Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)

Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)

Hi;I have a chevy s10 pickup 1996 no heat the radiator and heater core has been flushed twice.Also has a new thermostat and it wooked acouple days and now back to luke warm air any ideals?Thanks Randy


It is possible you have air bubbles in the cooling system. Loosen radiator cap or resivor cap and let idle for about 15 minutes. Tighten cap and drive and see if that helps. REMEMBER TO START THIS PROCEDURE WITH A COOL MOTOR AS THINGS WILL BE QUITE DANGEROUS DUE TO COOLING SYSTEM PRESSURE WHEN HOT.

My car shuts down while driving but starts back up in 10 minutes


sounds like you may have a bad crank sensor, ignition coil or cam sensor.electronic components usually fail when their hot. and when they cool down they work fine again.
