Sounds like the choke is not closing. Perhaps it has become detached from the manual throttle.
A simple test you can perform is to let it cool for an hour or more, remove the air filter and cover the air intake with your hand (making your hand a manual choke). If it starts right up, then the real choke is the problem.
There are two valves that you can see from the top of the carb. The one closest to the air cleaner is the choke. The other one is the throttle. Both valves operate through 90 degrees of rotation. The choke should close all of the way with the lever in the start position and be open all of the way with the lever in any other position.

Pull the pre O2 sensors( it will be loud). If it stays running longer, replace the catalytic converters.

Would I have air trapped in my cooling system if both my fans stay continuously running?


It's possible to have air in your cooling system. To check start you vehicle and let it run til your heater is hot. Turn your heater on all the way for a couple of mins. This will help get all air out of the heater core. It also helps if you have the back end more downhill than the front since air always sits above the water. After it's warmed up shut it off and let it cool down. After it completely cooled down remove your radiator cap and check your fluid level if it's full then you have an electrical problem. Bad relay or short in the wires somewhere.

Odyssey cranks and runs fine until ot gets hot, then it shuts off and will not crack again. Then, after the car sits and cools down for a few hours, it starts again at the first try.


Sounds like a fuel pump with the information you have given me. An Independent garage will be a lot cheaper and more reliable than the Stealership. Good luck

Just a suggestion but my guess would be the engine control module. Usually when they heat up, the engine shuts down and when they cool off it works again, until it heats up again, then poof. I sincerely hope that I helped. Best wishes.

1999 Tahoe 5.0 Very hard starting, sometimes requires starting fluid to get started. once started runs fine. Has had a full tune-up, new fuel filter. Fuel pressure has been checked and is ok. 2 different...


The most common cause of this condition is the check valve in the fuel pump failing, to check this hook up a fuel test guage to the fuel rail test port, run the engine for a moment and shut it down, after shout down the pressure should stay within 5 PSI of the pressure at shut down after sitting overnight, if it doesn't then the fuel pump must be replaced, the reason is the fuel drains back to the tank if the valve is defective, so you get air and no real pressure on cold start, A check of pressure on a hot running engine will not show this fault, also make sure you are usine the correct Octane of fuel, Prem fuel in a regular fuel engine will cause cold start and stalling issues in cold weather.

Heater kicks out


Honeywell heaters like HZ3650 have a screen on the air inlet at the back side of the heater. This screen can be partially blocked off by an accumulation of lint, etc. The lint blocks some of the air flow which may cause heat increase within the heater to the point that the safety shutoff thermostat shuts off the power. Operation is returned after a cool down period only to repeat the shut down cycle after a short period of operation. If this is the cause of the problem the screen must be cleaned.
