My 2004 5.3 L runs fine when it’s cool and starts to stall when the temperature gauge is half ways could it be the feul pump or the crank position sensor?

SOURCE: 2004 Bonneville - Temperature Gauge is Erratic

Since there is no voltage applied with the ignition off, if the gauge is not dropping down all the way, it is the gauge that has failed.
Temperature sensors are frequent failures but they are not active when the car isn't powered up. They can be intermittant, high, low but with no power, the gauge itself should go to the minimum.

Check your coolant level. If you have air in the lines, the times when there's no coolant in the area of the sensor will make the temp go up rapidly, then it goes back down when coolant hits it again. You need to get the air out of the system, or you WILL have larger issues at hand, like a blown head gasket, cracked head, reduced piston ring sealing, or material transfer from the pistons to the cylinder walls. One other thing that could cause this is a faulty thermostat.

Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE

My 1998 lumina stalls while driving


Connect a scan tool to the car and check for DTC codes. If the car stalls likely a check engine code is set.

Your friendly auto parts stores will provide this as a complementary service.

fans came late on those car,like 212 and second fan comes on at 224,you reprogram it to come a lot sooner,,other thing is there might be gunk inside the block,and coolant has hard time to pass through,and staying longer than enough in block temp goes high,even tough the radiator is doing it's job,it is just coming out block lot hotter than it suppose to be,and gauge read the block not the radiator

I have a 2004 durango 5.7l hemi that makes loud knocking rattling noise when started but cuts off right away. No codes could be found fro OBD. Oil level is fine, just a little dirty. Don't know wha


Engine noises don't leave fault codes unless the knock is so bad the engine is misfiring. When you say it "cuts off right away" do you mean the engine stalls or the knock goes away? If the answer is the knock goes away right away then you have a crank or rod bearing that is loose from wear, the oil pressure fills the excess bearing clearance gap and the knock stops.

Every now and then it will stall out. just wait about 1/2 hour and it will start up and run good again


Sounds like the "Crank Position Sensor"...especially because it will start fine a few minutes later...tough to confirm by codes on this one...do any of your gauges go beserk when your Buick stalled? This would again point to the same intermittent starting and running problem...part is about $35. May need help to install...:)

  1. Check the ignition switch condition and operation. The electrical contacts in the run position may be worn or damaged. Try restarting the engine with all electrical accessories in the off position. Sometimes turning the key on an off will help in emergency situations, however once the switch has shown signs of failure, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Check for loose, corroded, damaged or shorted wires for the ignition system and repair or replace.
  3. Check for manifold vacuum leaks or vacuum hose leakage and repair or replace parts as necessary.
  4. Measure the fuel pump delivery volume and pressure. Low fuel pump pressure can also be noticed as a lack of power when accelerating. Make sure the fuel pump lines are not restricted. The fuel pump output is not adjustable and requires fuel pump replacement to repair.
  5. Check the engine fuel and ignition management system. Inspect the sensor wiring and electrical connectors. A dirty, loose or damaged sensor or control module wire can simulate a failed component.
  6. Check the exhaust system for internal restrictions.

Car overheated and antifreze was boiling and spewing over until engine cooled. 2004 jeep liberty 2wd. Thanks!


Need to know what caused the overheating, possible broken serpentine belt, thermostat, water pump, radiator, fan clutch, cooling fan motor. After motor has cooled down fill radiator with water till full, look make sure serpentine belt not broke, start engine run about 5 minutes, turn off, let sit 3 minutes, start engine look at temperture gauge is it over half way of gauge, Do you have a fan blade driven by water pump or electric fans?

1997 chevy lumina get warm and then stalls will not restart


Hi, It sounds like you have a bad temperature sensor. Which is a plug like sensor that screws in. You will find it on or near where you coolant hoses connect to your engine. usually near the upper hose. Which would be screwed into the neck that connects to the head or on the head itself. Also check your radiator it could be plugged into the back (facing the fan). also if you have not changed your thermostat it wouldn't be a bad idea to do that also. which you will find under the neck of where the hose connects to your engine. Usually 2 or three bolts. Make sure your engine is cooled down when doing this service to your engine because of built up pressure in the coolant system which will cause burns or worse. I hope this helped you out. It would be greatly appreciated if you could rate my answer, thanks MIKE-

2001 Hyundai Accent. Heating and stalls


If the water tends to keep going down then there has to be a leak somewhere. Try also looking at the hose coming from the overflow tank and see if the hose might be kinked. You might also be blowing antifreeze out the tailpipe. Take a look and if there is bluish white smoke then you have confirmed that theory,

Loss of power car ticks over ok


Had a similar problem before. Change the feul filter. This often fails due to sand in gas and limits gas being pumped into your turbo. If you change this and the cars runs fine, eventually you will have to change the feul pump. Do the feul filter first. It's cheap and easy.
