Im haveing a over heating problem and i got a new water pump and thermost dont know what else to do

Are you just going by your temp gage? Is coolant boiling over? Are you losing coolant? I'd want to know, how hot does the engine gets in degrees F? Does the radiator fan work? Can you see coolant circulation in radiator? If you remove radiator cap, cool engine, then start the engine, does the coolant rise quickly? If it does, I'd look for head gasket issue.
What about coolant temp sensor? Without testing, I don't know how to help?

I have a 92 Chevy s10 starts up no problem but once it gets warmed up shuts down and won't start for several hrs. New fuel pump ignition module cap and rotor iac .codes 15 & 45 keep coming up . v6

15 is coolant temp sensor reading low temp. 45 is O2 sensor reading rich. Older GM vehicles do react to bad temp readings. I would replace it first. This can cause the rich condition for the O2 sensor.

When I turn the key, it acts like it wants to start but won't

Sounds like an engine coolant temp sensor to me. Find the ohms rating for the coolant temp sensor on your car, and test it with a volt meter. The coolant temp sensor gives the temperature of the coolant in your car to the computer to determine how much fuel to put into the motor. If the coolant sensor is bad, the computer in your car thinks its -40 degrees F and thus dumps way to much fuel into the motor causing it to be way to rich and making it very hard to start and stay running.

My engine all of a sudden runs terrible and smokes and smells like gas

I would 1st check the coolant temp sensor & connector. These are super common problems on saturns and will cause it to run really rich. Basically the computer will think it's minus 40 degrees and try to compensate for it. The ignition coil pack and/or modules also go out on these, so you can check for good spark at all the cylinders.

Fridge and freezer at 50 degrees with settings on max cold. I can hear compressor cycling and all power is on. Suggestions?

Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:

Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.

Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.

Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.

Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.

Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.

Hope this helps...

Too much gas being dumped into throttle body of 1988 plymouth voyager v6

at the risk of asking for clarification on motor size and equiptment, im going out on a limb and guessing you have one of three problems, 1)bad o2 sensor,2)map sensor, map sensor hose,or 3)if you have an egr valve, it could be leaking and tricking the o2 senson, oh yeah, did i mention the coolant temp. sensor could be telling the ecm that it is -40 degrees? check the vacuum line to map sensor for cracks, you should have a lable under the hood to show you the hhoses. also the coolant sensor is near the distributor, unplug it and chheck for corrosion on the terminals, as for the o2 sensor you are going to need a scanner or volt meter tocheck that.but check the basics first. vacuum leaks,ect.

2000 bettle 1.9L turbo will only start if you unplug coolant temp sensor

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case, I strongly suggest that you replace the coolant temp sensor. Looks like it's faulty and grounding the circuit. The car's computer can detect it that's why it won't start but once you disconnect it, it will for the coolant sensor is bypassed.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Runs great , until it warms up then starts idle plop plop plop plop plop as long as i give it gas it runs great i knock out the converter and took the muffler off , sanded the cap and checked the button

Hi, make sure you do not have an injector stuck open, as it will dump gas constantly. Also make sure your ignition coil is not arcing, causing a spark loss. last, your coolant temp sensor,(next to the thermostat), may be bad. when they go bad, or are unhooked, it can make the computer read -40 degrees, and make the engine run rich, smoke, and sputter. Good luck...Coop

Check you coolant temp sensor ,If it is bad it will be reading{ 40 degrees below zero }and this will cause a rich condition due to the computer thinking it is that could outside, which requires more fuel .:)
