396 rebuilt motor in 2010 engine starts right away and then when engine gets hot it stalls what causes this have to wait till cooled down before restarting


Sounds like vapor-lock. Fuel line is too close to something hot, and the fuel is vaporizing, causing no fuel to carb. Move fuel line, insulate it, or get stronger fuel pump. Replace fuel filter, too. Possibly move fuel filter.

Why does motor try to choke out after it gets hot?


Hi, change your engine oil as it has most likely become contaminated with fuel. To avoid it happening again fit an inline fuel tap. Basically the fuel vapour in the oil gets hot and gets drawn into the air cleaner base via the crankcase breather leading to a choked engine. Regards Phil.

My 1985 mazda rx 7 1.1 gets glowing hot where exhust comes out of the motor , replaced exhust pipe and muffler but didn't help have any suggestions


Hi,
Check the ignition timing.
Make sure the fuel you are using is specified for engine use.
Last one will be to check the catalytic converter if it still open.

Hope that helps!

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.


first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer

Nitro car wont start?


Motor could be damaged from getting too hot. I would try to reset carb settings back to neutral from the factory. The manual that came with the car should tell you how many turns out they should be. Also check the fuel lines to make sure they did not get damaged. Nitro motors normally run best at 210 - 240 degrees. Much more than 240 degrees can damage the motor. It is always better to run a little rich than lean.

How to test fuel pressure


I have been working on a simular problem on my daughter's vehicle. with the following additional symptoms. It only fails while hot. Runing fuel preassure checks, I noticed that the preassure rises from 30 psi while running to 40 psi after turning off the hot engine. This is caused by the expansion of the fuel in the rail. I believe that this hgh preassure is causing the regulator to stick closed preventing the fuel to get to the rail during a restart, (as the preassure drops to 0 while the fuel pump does whirrrr during the startup proceedure). It seems to free up after it has cooled then works normally. We ordered a new regulator but haven't received it yet to see if this fixes the problem. There is a possibility that the problem is a weak pump that cannot overcome the stuck regulator but since all the checks are in spec, I'm leaning toward the regulator at the moment.

Fuel pump getting hot


Not a good sign at all make sure that the pump has a good ground but i will exchange the pump from where i got it, the fuel that runs into the pump should be cooling the motor but in your case the pump is heating the fuel not a very good sign please replace the pump.
