    I had a similar problem. My 90' FJ62 was running at normal operating temperature when it decided to shut down. Tried cranking it but it fuel didn't seem to get to the engine. Just had it towed. When it was dropped off, the engine started right up. Any one else.

Car overheats and a/c starts blowing hot air when at a long stop light

It sounds like your cooling fan(s) are not working. Most vehicles run the cooling fan full time when the A/C is on so that air is always being drawn through the condenser. If the A/C is not on, then there is a coolant temperature sensor that should activate the fan(s) when the temperature reaches a specific temperature. It will cool down when the vehicle is in motion because the forward motion of the vehicle forces air through the condenser and radiator assemblies. You need to check the fans and the fan circuit for problems since they don't seem to be working in for either A/C or temp sensor.

Air pockets in radiator

Air can be purged. While your engine is cool remove radiator and reservoir caps. Place funnel in radiator. Turn heat to the highest position and start vehicle. Add coolant to radiator as needed while vehicle warms up. You should see bubbles coming out of radiator. Fill reservoir to between cold and hot fill lines. Replace caps when bubbling stops but before coolant temperature reaches normal operating temperature. Never remove the radiator cap until engine has fully cooled down.

W\hen car gets hot and we turn it off it wont start again until it cools down. It takes about 13 to 20 min before it will restart.??? Please help me

{: ) The engine control module is programmed to protect the engine by disabling the starting system whenever it detects that the engine temperature is beyond safe limits. Depending on how fast the engine cools, it will resume normal starting after cooling down for a while.
A diagnostic scan tool readout can give you a quick idea about the possible causes of your engine overheating. For the meantime, as soon as you can start the vehicle after cooling down, drive the vehicle and try to turn off or minimize the loads , and avoid traffic sitting as possible, just enough time to reach home or a nearby service shop.
There are several things that need to be checked:
The coolant level and quality, and check for signs of coolant leaks.
The cooling fans,are they operating as designed? Check for fan blades damage or cracks.
The water pump could be faulty. Check also the engine belt.
The engine oil.
If the engine temperature sensor is faulty, it can also bring inaccurate signals and may affect operation of the cooling fans.
Check fuses and relays that power the cooling fans.

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.

To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

I currently have a vw golf gfi with the engine code of AWD. The car has no heat. I've also noticed the car doesn't get very hot. The temp gauge isn't in the middle where it normally is. I know my engine...

i would say no thermostat has been fitted or changed or the wrong type will cause this as well ,these vehicles have a housing at the front which is plastic and one on the side ,well the thermostat is behind one of them depending on model and the thermostat has two shut off doors so to speak and if yours only has one then this is because your mechanic thought they could get away with a different stat that they had laying around from an american vehicle ,yes it fits in the hole but it blocks one way and opens another then when engine is hot one closes and the other opens allowing the water into the rad to cool it

Car won't start. It turns over but won't start. Wait 10-15 minutes and it starts.1998 Honda Accord EX

There is a possibility of a condition called "Vapor Lock" in which on hot temperatures, air bubbles form inside the fuel line, and dont allow the fuel to reach the injectors. One the line cools down, the vapor goes away, and car starts uneventfully. Have the fuel lines checked for leaks or abnormalities. The other possibility is that the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) relay or computer unit is acting up. These units usually start to fail when hot, and work normally after the engine compartment cools down.

Wont start after it warms up

Your fuel pump relay on top of the radiator might be defective. This also runs the cooling fans.

1997 ford explorer overheating but no gurgling and cools back down when heater is turned on . not loosing any coolant. does not seem to do it at idle but as soon as you start moving it goes up and when it...

Make sure the cooling fans are working when the engine reaches above normal temp,if they are not ,turn the ac on,and see if the cooling fans come on,if so,replace the coolant temp sensor,if it has a clutch fan,then replace it,for it is not staying engaged ,and is not turning fast enough to cool the radiator.
