Why does a 1995 Chrysler lhs start and run until it gets warm then stalls and wont start again until it cools off?
sounds like you temperature sending unit is bad. very cheap part usually easy to fix however sometimes hard to find - buy an automotive book for you car or ask someone at parts store

Thanks for the feedback!
That mystery has affected various models of cars, first thing i would check is coolant levels, i have come across water leaks that when hot go into a very very fine mist under… pressure that find its way onto ignition leads and other crucial ignition parts, it may be as simple as that or an overheating ignition coil.
Answer It most likely is the air temp sensor. they are 20 dollars. I would also suggest replacing your PCV valve and your thermostat.

I can't speak for that SPECIFIC car and model but on most cars with two fans, one is driven by the engine belt and runs whenever the engine is running. The other runs el…ectrically and can turn on (usually) if the key is in the ignition. There is a relay and a controller that tells that fun if the engine needs cooling. On some cars this fan will run even if the key is not in the ignition; i.e. parked and the driver away from the vehicle. It should stop when the sensor running it decides the engine is cool enough. Answer 2: (The correct answer for the 1999 and later Chrysler LHS) Both fans are electrically driven and have two speeds. The fans operate at a lower speed until a certain temperature is reached, at which time they both switch to high speed. The two fans are always on the same setting: Off, Low or High.
%DETAILS% Answer Have your cat converter checked out.
Your '95 Neon starts and runs fine while engine is cold after engine has warmed up to normal operating temp it stalls out and will not restart until engine has been allowed to cool down again.?
Answer Check the coil pak. Known to do this. Answer I own a '95 Neon that is doing JUST THIS SAME THING! Today I decided that I would change the… ignition coil, but oddly that DID NOT solve the problem. I'm exactly sure what the problem is now....any other ideas??? Answer It is a ECT sensor problem. Im positive Answer ya, check the sensors if changing the coil pack did not work. Answer I find that ignition modules are more apt to have the problem described, coils are usually consistent. I agree. If the coil checks out OK, then the ignition module, attached to the distributor, cuts out at a higher temperature. Answer i have a 1996 neon it is doing the same thing. I got the ignition coil replaced, didnt work. a complete tune up, didnt work. recently had the throttle body cleaned, didnt work. i think
92 Chevy pick up starts fine when cold once warmed up RPM's go up and truck stahl and then can't start again until cool off What can cause that?
i had that happen and it was the EGR valve i believeAnswer I HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM AND FOUND IT TO BE THE COIL WIRE. IT WAS HEATING UP AND BREAKING CONNECTION. Fro…m txbasshound: If you figure it out, let me know. I have a 1994 Cheyenne P/U that's doing the same thing. Acts like it's still trying to choke it. Have replaced the thermostat and the coolant sensor and still is doing the same thing. Was told by a shop that the ECM thinks the engine is still cold even after it's warmed up. I'm still working on this so if I come up with anything, I'll put up a post.
Generic Issue? This is a great question: This problem seems to occur across the board from Beetles, Hondas to Fords and BMWs. Seems to be characterictic of 1980s …and later. Does anyone know if there is heat sensor involved which might shut off the fuel injection to the plugs? Maybe a computer problem?
Why does 1995 Ford Escort start and run when cold but start and stall when warm then start and run well on second or third restart?
Answer The idle speed control valve was bad.
What is wrong with 1995 Saturn SL1 1.9 L It runs cool and you can drive it for 500 km but if you shut it off while warm starter wont engage until about 30 min wait check engine light on at same time?
Answer The starter solenoid is most likely bad if it will not crank over If it cranks over most likely crank sensor is bad how can you just say most likely the cra…nk sensor? how the hell do you know it could be anything
You transplanted 4-3 vortec into 46 willys runs perfect then dies NOT FROM HEAT but wont start until it cools to 160 degree?
Answer change your temp. sencer it might have a cut off that malfunctioned
2002 Chevy S10 always starts when cold but after it warms it sometimes will not turn over until it cools about an hour then it will start again?
Answer . Remove starter and bring to an auto parts stoe that is equipped to check it for drag and amperage draw. Check battery cables for looseness and/or corrosion Loa…d test battery
Why does a 1996 Plymouth breeze start and run until it gets warm then stalls and wont start again until it cools off?
A 1996 Plymouth Breeze that starts and runs until it warms up, but then stalls might have a problem with a temperature sensor. The sensor is telling the computer that the …temperature is too high for the engine to operate safely. Check the Electronic Temperature Sensor or the Manifold Pressure Sensor (MAP).
Why does 2000 ford contour not start when cold then after gets running wants to stall until engine is warmed up?
Check the OBD computer codes. You can purchase, rent or borrow a code scanner from most auto parts retailers. There can be several potential problems which could contribute to… the problem, one being the temperature sensor, but you cannot possibly know what is wrong unless/until you check the computer. If the computer gives you no useful results, check the fuel pressure. The computer diagnostics do not typically report low fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure could be caused by a failing fuel pump or a blocked fuel filter. If the fuel pressure is ok, you may have dirty injectors. Good luck. Sorry, but the answer given has no basis. The Car is Bi-fuel, CNG / Gasoline problem happens now on Both types of fuel. It is Not a Fuel System Problem. There have never been any computer codes shown...Never! Ford doesn't know how to fix this. Multiple complaints on the internet about these cars and this type of issue. Never has Anyone posted a FIX, jut their problems. Would someone who has had this problem PLEASE write something somewhere so we can find out How to Fix this! PLEASE! Items already replaced, TPS, Idle air valve, both O2 Sensors, Plugs, wires, coil pack, alternator. Sorry, but the answer given has no basis.

In Ford Taurus
My 1993 Ford Taurus idles rough when I start it. Then it stalls when it gets hot and it will not turn over until it cools. Does anyone have an idea why Thanks?
The possible problem could be a faulty idea air control valve or a dirty throttle plate. Also, inspect the car for any vacuum leaks.
94 5.8 Ford Bronco won't start without Starting Fluid It will run ok until I cut it off and the same will have to be done again what could cause this?
It could be as simple as a leaking fuel pressure regulator that allows fuel pressure to drop when the engine is turned off, and it's not getting up to pressure when you …try to start the engine. Try this: Next time the engine sits for a while and you're ready to start it, turn the key on but don't try to start the engine. Leave the key on for about five seconds then turn it off. Repeat the process, THEN try to start the engine. It might help but then again, if it doesn't you aren't out anything.
