I drive a kenworth t600 tractor. Engine shut down while driving no power glided to side of road what would cause the engine to shut down in mid stride


Check coolant level or possibly a bad coolant level sensor. If either of these are at fault, it can cause the engine to shut down or run with reduced power to keep from damaging the engine. Had this problem with a 2005 Freightliner w/ Detroit engine. (bad coolant level sensor)

Why does 2000 s40 volvo turbo runs hot and the fan stays on after shut off


fans are designed to run on after you shut engine down as engine temperature rise after switching off . running hot could be caused by the top hose having gone soft when you rev the engine the water pump sucks the hose flat stopping the coolant flow or the radiator is blocked and need flushing out

I have a 2005 Land Rover LR3 V8 and the only problem I'm having is that sometimes when I pull into park the car shut shuts off, the power is still on but the engine shuts off. I don't have a


I had a similar problem in that when the driver stopped at a set of ligjhts the engine died. ran alright every where else just when the car was stopped. The problem turned out to be a vacuum leak in the brake booster leaning out the idle when the foot was on the brakes. resulting in the engine stopping. Try parking using the hand brake and not the foot brake. It could be as simple as that.

Noise at shut down


The noise is caused by the engine running on after the ignition is shut off. It makes noise because the pistons are rattling in the cylinders from incorrect timing. This has nothing to do with the mechanical or electronic timing of the engine. The engine runs on either because of hot glowing carbon deposits in the cylinder head or because the engine was shut down when it was running too fast. Sometimes the carbon can be literally blown out by running the engine at high rpm for a short time. Put it in second gear and run it for a couple of miles on the highway. If this does not work the heads will have to be removed and the carbon cleaned out manually. The shut down when running too fast problem can be caused by the idle being set too high or by shutting the engine off before it has reached idle speed. If you can adjust the idle speed try reducing it. If not always hesitate before shutting the engine down to let it reach idle speed. Good Luck!
