have the cooling fans checked to see if they turn on at the set temperature. A faulty cooling fan can cause a vapor lock within the fuel line
Please read below

Modern cars, on the other hand, typically have electric cooling fans. These fans are linked to a sensor that detects the engine's temperature, and tells the fan whether to speed up or slow down. As a result, the internal combustion engines in modern cars are less likely to overheat than those in older models, making vapor lock much less common than it used to be.
All of the problems that cause vapor lock are easily corrected, even on older cars. Older cars can often be retrofitted with the newer technology that reduces the likelihood of the fuel lines overheating. For instance, even on a carbureted engine, a low-pressure electric fuel pump can be installed near the fuel tank, which will keep the fuel moving along the lines even if it starts to heat up in the engine compartment.
Another easy remedy for vapor lock in older cars is to install an electric fan in the engine compartment. Many auto parts stores carry aftermarket cooling fans, which can be installed on any car. Some cooling fans can be connected to the existing engine temperature sensor, mimicking the behavior of the cooling fans in modern cars.
Finally, vapor lock can be prevented in any car by protecting the fuel lines from the heat of the engine. There are two ways to do this. One way is to install heat shields between the engine and the fuel lines, which will divert most of the heat away from the lines. Fuel lines can also be insulated to prevent the fuel from getting to the temperatures at which vapor lock occurs.

Sounds like your truck is in need of a tuneup where spark plugs and wires may be replaced. It may help if you tell us the mileage in the truck and the weather conditions when this happens. thank you!

Hi, you will need both of the numbers. The vin and serial number, Write them down.

Locate your VIN number at the base of the front window, driver side. If you can't read your VIN off the window, you will have it on your proof of insurance and title as well. Write it down.

Locate your manufacture's toll free Customer Service number and call them. I called Mitsubishi at 1-888-MITSU2009 to get my code and they were very helpful and easy to work with. Some other manufacture's 800 numbers include:

Acura 1-800-382-2238, Audi 1-800-367-2837, BMW 1-800-831-1117, GMC 1-800-462-8782, Honda 1-800-999-1009, Isuzu 1-800-255-6727, Mazda 1-800-222-5500, Nissan 1-800-647-7263, Saab 1-800-582-7222, Saturn 1-800-553-6000, Toyota 1-800-311-4331, Volvo 1-800-458-1552.

Drill a small hole at the bottom of the lens. This will at least let the water drain.

Not sure if this will work but if you have a battery replaced in your car you usually need to reprogram your radio code. try disconnecting your battery for a bit, connecting it & then see if it asked you for the code when you turn it on. Then put the right code in. I hope that works. it would be worth a try anyway. hope this helps and good luck.

Did your alternator kill the battery? It could be that or it could be a bad wire in the battery wires.

P0420 is a catalytic converter inefficiency code for bank 1. It has nothing to do with the EGR valve. It usually means that the catalytic converter is no longer functioning as intended and usually needs to be replaced in order to solve the problem.

What year, make, model, and engine size and what is the current mileage? Emissions warranties are much longer than vehicle warranties.

Hello there
!t is fairly easy but it is better with 2 people and here is why
you need to have a meter set on the lowest ohms scale
1 person hold the meter and touch both leads to the posts of the sensor
then while reading the meter you need to wave your hand about 1 inch from the sensor this is why 2 people are needed ok ? and you should get a fairly high reading if it is good.
If you get no reading swap the 2 meter leads and try again
if still no high reading the sensor is bad and must be replaced but if it is good it should be 4 to like 15 or so ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards mike
