Welcome to Fixya
Try to check the crankshaft sensor. Crankshaft sensor monitors the relationship between valves and pistons in the engine to maintain the variable valve timing. It is also measures the engine's speed by calculating revolutions per minute. When a crankshaft sensor has failed or is failing, certain timing problems will arise in engine function. The engine may start normally in some cases, but will cut off after a few minutes (or seconds) of operation. More than likely the engine will be unable to start at all. Since the crankshaft sensor is responsible for engine timing, the driver may experience engine backfire or irregular rpm function, if the vehicle starts at all.

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

How to bleed cooling system on 1995 windstar with 3.8


Use a floor jack and raise the car up as high as possible, fill the coolant recovery tank as full as possible and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal temperature, shut it down and run cols water war over the radiator, the air will self bleed and coolant will be pulled into the radiator as it cools to fill the void. The radiator cap is left on during this procedure.

Car runs great until it get about 180 degrees andthen shuts off let it cool off a lil bit its starts back up until it shuts off again why


I am thinking that perhaps the temperature sensor is reading wrong and therefore sending a message to the computer that the car is running too hot. This can happen, my VW presently reads 20 hotter on the guage than a heat gun records at the temp sensor location on the head. If you have access to a heat gun it might be a good idea to check out the actual temperature, but it probably won't hurt to change the sensor.

The other problem that occurs to me is the oil sending sensor. While a temperature sensor won't shut an engine down, the oil sender can. If it is reading a large drop in oil pressure it will shut the engine off. Since oil gets thinner as it gets hot, perhaps a defective sending unit is reading it as too low. Once the oil cools off, it would restart until the temperature gets too high again. I would think that upgrading to a heavier oil might cure the problem. I don't know what you are currently usung but certainly you could go to 10W30 or 10W40 without too much trouble, at least for a test. Hope this helps.

You probably need to bleed the cooling system properly.

Open the cooling system bleeder screws.

Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 coolant mixture until coolant runs freely out of bleeder screws.
Close the cooling system bleeder screws
Install the coolant pressure cap
Start the engine.
Run the engine at 2,000 - 2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature. (midway on gauge)
Allow the engine to idle for 3 minutes.
Shut the engine off.
Allow the engine to completely cool.
Top off the coolant as necessary.
Run engine again at 2000 - 2500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature.
Allow engine to idle until cooling fans come on. It should come on with the gauge about 3/4 of the way to red. - if it gets to where is touches the red, shut down immediately.
When the fan comes on, put your hand behind the fan and observe the temperature of the air coming from the fan. It should feel hot. If it is blowing cold air, the coolant is not circulating through the radiator like it should. This could be caused by lots of things including an improper/defective thermostat, corroded water pump impeller, or a blown head gasket.

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.
