Question about 1991 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

When cool in the morning, engine keeps dying. But when it stays out in the sun (in warmer temps) it is not hard to keep running. But after it reaches just below 210, it runs better. Changed the ERG, ERG Solenoid, and fuel filter.

Have the ignition coil or coils checked. That is one component that can become temperature sensitive. Most part stores have the ability to check ignition coils. Another possibility is clogged fuel injectors. If you think that is what it could be, then you can have them professionally cleaned with a fuel injection cleaning machine. I have seen this procedure work very well in certain cases. I hope this information has been helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Cooling fan relay location for a 1992 corvet


the air con fan comes on with the air con switch. the engine cooling fan comes on when the engine temp. censer reaches operation temp. most times the air through the radiator when driving is enough to keep the censer cool and the fan not working if you stop at lights for any length of time it will come on.

My 1989 S 10 blazer starts up but it shuts off unless I press the gas


Starts runs then dies. Several things can be the problem low fuel pressure/volume . check fuel filter plugged. bad fuel pressure regulator or bad check valve in fuel pump not keeping fuel line charged with fuel. Idle air control is sticking/ dirty throttle plate. bad engine coolant temp sensor not reading true temp (sending warmer signal)

My 96 jeep grand cherokee keeps dieing when it gets hot


My first question would be, do you know if the cooling fan is coming on ? ?
The computer can shut down the engine if it reaches 250 or 260 degrees. You could also have a coil or other electrical part that is failing when hot.

My 1994 volkswagen golf has a problem with the cooling fan, it keeps running even after the car is shut off. How do i fix that?


It may be running because the engine hasn't cooled down. These fans will run until the engine reaches a specific cool temp. But if it's not running hotter than normal temp, it's within the temp switch, which reads the temp of the engine, or the relay could be bad and not know when to shut down. While you're driving look to see what the temp gauge is reading. This will lead you in different direction for the temp. switch.

The cooling fan is staying on all of the time. when trying to turn the fan it turns very hard.


your engine has a temp sensor that tells the fans to turn you may have a sensor going out or shorting out keeping the fans on constantly ,does it turn on even when you turn the key on in the morning

2004 dodge ram 1500 overheating on the freeway


The 2002- 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7 L. has a single core radiator with flat fins that become easily plugged with scale and other stuff floating around in your motors cooling system. Since these fins are so small about .040 of an inch good luck flushing out any clogged particles by doing a flush. Many of the online part stores have replacement radiators for less than $120.00 (Rock Auto, for example). Replace the radiator with a new unit. Make sure to flush the engine block and heater core before connecting back to new radiator. I completed this job over the past weekend in less than 3.0 hours start to finish. Have less than $220.00 in all hoses, Thermostat, Radiator and new coolant.
