Did they figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when it fails to start up ? You would need to know which to proceed.

SOURCE: 2000 Nissan frontier, stalls and wont start after

Once you have the car started do you get rough idling or the needle of the tachometer does not stay in one spot? You may need to inspect the Idle Air Control valve if that is the case. It may need cleaning or you may have to replace it. It is located at the intake manifold.

Below is a sample picture but the prices vary.

I would recommend to have a scanner connected to the car to check if there are error saved in the computer. Some shops would let you borrow them. You may also inspect the engine for loose vacuum hoses and wires.

SOURCE: i have a 1992 gmc sonoma and it starts fine when its cold and runs good but when it warms up it dies and wont stay running and sometimes wont start till it sits for 15 20 min

sounds like a bad ignition module check for spark when it dies if you do not have spark at plugs check between coil and coil wire if still no spark most likely module it is under rear of distributer cap resembles a black wafer board with two electrical plugs

SOURCE: 1998 cherokee stall when driving and gets warm ,And wont start till it cools off ?

does your temp gage seem off does it go like up to the h because if it does you could try unpluging your upper coolent sensor because that could cause that because it is telling you computer to run in closed loop when it should be running in open loop

302 bronco stalls after it warms up and won't start till it cools down


I am guessing its your TFI or Thick Film Ignition module. Usually located on the underside of your distributor, its either grey or black in color and often when it is going bad it acts like this: Usually starts fine, runs ok for about 20 min then engine dies. cranking engine sounds normal but no start. checking spark will have no sparks. Leave hood up and allow to cool (also TFI very hot to the touch) I packed Ice around it once (in a ziplock) that made it run in about 45 min. NOTE: get ready to replace real soon because its on the way to breaking down.

Restating 2000 odyssey after warmed up


not sure what that means.
lets start over.
your saying car runs great, cold then hot.
then hard to restart a hot engine, right?
the light thing i dont understand
first off, when you stall and engine or just key ON.
the lamps all self test (read the operators guide there)
this is only a lamp test.
odd, the most important is skipped the CEL, check engine light.
is the engine stalling?
hot restarts, fails are: many.
  1. injector leaking at shut down.
  2. ECT reads to cold when hot. can be below caused
  3. Engine thermostat stuck open and restarts are over rich and floods. that hot engine must be at 180F or more,
  4. never did a 60,000 mile tuneup this decade?
  5. Fuel pressure too high.
i do tune ups first.
then check coolant temperatures, hot. 180F min, and holding or i kick the thermostat to the curb (new stat time)
if it sill dont want to hot start
out comes the scan tool
i scan it, got DTC errors.
is ECT reading 180F ? or above?

that is start on diagnosis.

Accent 2000 runs well then stalls once hot and will not start till cooled off


Check your coolant level and overflow bottle for proper fill. Or try running it With radiator cap loose to see if it still stalls. If it still stalls and coolant levels are good you need to check temp sensor. May be more than One. If you did install a new one, it may have been faulty or damaged. If all that fails then try an idle positioning sensor. The spring may be worn.

Runs fine for approx 15 mins,then stalls out and wont start again


sounds like coil problem, coils will start cold then get hot and stop. when coil cools will crank up and run till it gets hot, try to replace the ignition coil,dont think it would be a crank sensor, try a coil,thanks robert b.

2000 caravan 3.0 stall after 20 min no spark restarts few hours later


This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.

First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.

If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.

When it cools back down it starts working fine again.
