It could be the fuel pressure regulator, the regulator is vacuum operated. When the diaphram ruptures gas is allowed to go directly into the intake manifold, through the regulator. So, when you shut the engine off, there is still pressure in the fuel system, with a ruptured diaphram the gas can leak through the vacuum line into the manifold. Thus, flooding the engine. If you pull the vacuum line off the regulator and it's wet with gas that's the problem. The part is about $100 from Napa Auto Parts.

I HAVE A 1997 PLYMOUTH VOYAGER 3.0L ENGINE TURNS WHEN HOT AFTER 100 MILES THE ENGINE STALLS, IF I LEAVE THE REST RESTART IT BUT 30 MINUTES 15 MINUTES LATER HE HOLD AGAIN


Not clear on the issue. If the engine is stopping when hot, you will need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.

I have a 92 Acura Legend L V6 engine. My acura had been running hot until I put a brand new radiator on it, I drove the car for appro 40 miles one way and back, still didn't run hot. The car heater...


Thermostat improperly installed. (backwards) Or possibly you could have a blown head gasket and a bad thermostat at the same time. The head gasket could be letting exhaust gasses into the cooling system. A bad (stuck open) thermostat could "mask" this problem by allowing the coolant to circulate through the radiator when it is not supposed to. Thus, installing a new thermostat would trap the exhaust gasses in the cylinder head and cause the overheating.

The fan on my 96 acura tl comes after i cut the car off and runs loudly


The fan on a 1996 Acura RL will normally run for a short period after the engine is shut off if the temperature sensor determines the engine is too hot. However, if it is running constantly and not shutting off after you shut off your engine, then you will need to replace the fan relay. It is most likely stuck in a closed position. If your fan does shut off after running for a period of time when you shut off the engine but you have a noisy fan, then most likey the fan bearings are wearing out and it is more cost-effective to replace the whole fan. Thanks for using Fixya.

My 1994 Acura Legend keeps running hot. Gauge


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.
