Look on the distributor. There is a module on it that, when too hot, will cause miss/stall/no re-start situations.

Why does my 1994 ED ford Falcon run for 20mins or more then just stop i Have put a new fuel pump in and another TFI module what else could it be?


when it stops check to see if there is spark. easy way is to spray starting fluid into intake, engine side of air cleaner if possible. Easy does it,1-2 seconds. try to start, and if of nothing, coil or coil packs is the place to start. They commonly work when cold and quit when the get hot until they quit altogether.

Car star when is cold but if I stop the engine after is hot it will not start until cool of again


If you mean that it starts fine when cold, but if you stop & turn off the engine (to to pop into a shop for example) then try to restart and get absolutely no turning over, then you need to replace your battery. It has a short or crack which is expanding when hot creating your problem.

I have a 97 grand am 3100 v6. when engine is cold it starts and runs fine until i shut it off then it wont start until it cools off. the fuel pump wont work until engine cools off. then it will start and...


I know this sounds silly but Replace the crankshaft position sensor. My guess is it will start shutting itself off soon and restarting when it cools off. I think its just giving you a warning lol.

I have a 01 ford escort zx2 and it is making a whining noise from under the hood i have replaced the water pump and it still whines and the heater will start off blowing hot air but when you go several...


Remove the serpentine belt and run the engine to see if the whine still exists. If the whine is gone, try moving the pullies by hand to feel what pully is rough or has a lot of play. Your issue with the heat is likely separate from the whine. You have air in the cooling system. With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap. Fill the radiator to the top and run the engine until it gets to operating temp. The level in the radiator will drop, this is when you add more coolant and replace the cap. Make sure your overflow/resivoir bottle is half full with coolant.

My car still stop all of a sudden without any warning and then it will have a little bit of a hard time starting.


If it starts fine when cold or will restart after it cools down and run until the engine warms up, have your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) replaced. I have seen quite a few lately that will "warm" up and cause the car/truck to gradually run rougher as the engine compartment heats up and once it sits and cools off will restart and run again. You can go to auto zone, advance auto, etc and have them run a free diagnostic test on your car and tell you for sure if any TPS trouble codes are stored

2004 ford f350diesle hard starting depress throtle nothing there


Dear dsmalley427,
I think it sounds like a fuel injection problem. You get fuel for a while until the injector backs up and then all of a sudden NO FUEL. The engine quits and the pressure drops and flow returns enough for you to restart. If I were you I would get to a good mechanic and check the fuel injectors.
OR--try adding a fuel additive that would clean the injectors.--Signed jwr

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.
