If it is running ragged and eventually stops, it is because the engine idle is too high. It has an idle solonoid that controls the idle speed and sometimes you need to take it out of the throtle body and clean it, If it just idles smoothly as if you didn't turn the key off, it is probably the ignition switch which is on the steering column under the dash. Not where you insert the key. that is simply the lock mechanism.
Fuel filter may be clogging up enough to not provide enough gasoline to keep the engine running, but will accumulate enough gasoline in it to re-start the vehicle.
No. The air conditioner is driven by the engine crankshaft, so it will not turn if the engine is not running. Just so you know, you are wasting a lot of gas by driving around with your A/C engaged all the time.
ECM (engine control module) This is the brain of your vehicle. It takes in information from various sensors then sends out signals to items such as fuel injectors and timing to keep the engine running at its best for performance and fuel economy.
Most of the time rough running and stalling is due to vacuum leaks. There is more of a load on the engine when it is in gear, so that lends itself to stalling out. When I look for vacuum leaks, I have the engine idling (maybe you need a friend to keep it from stalling) and then spray carburetor cleaner around the various hoses & gaskets that could be leaking. Any increase in the idle speed would be an indicator that you have a leak in that area.
look at your belt with the engine running (keep your fingers out) the pully on a little arm that bounces is your tensioner.
It could keep the engine from running, but not the valves from moving.
No. It will keep running until the engine is completely destroyed.No. It will keep running until the engine is completely destroyed.

I am not sure how much it would cost to rebuild the engine, but I just did an engine swap on my saturn. The engine cost $325 and it had 102,000 miles on it. Keep in mind that this price doesn't include the price for the oil/filter, coolant, sparkplugs/wires. All said and done my car was up and running like a new car for under $400.00. The hardest part of the whole thing was actually finding an engine for it.
Air conditioner or defroster on - normal should be running Vehicle low on coolant? Trying to keep engine in normal range Defective coolant sensor?
Its not your engine. Its the fan running to cool the engine down. They all do it and nothing is wrong with your car.
( NO ) with the engine cool
Aircraft engine manufacturers do what they do to keep the aviation industry running.
more likely to be a faulty coolant sensor or the thermostat is faulty and staying open
It is important to use the correct type of oil in a car to keep the engine running properly. For this particular car, it is recommended to use a 5w-30 oil.
If you want an oil that keeps the engine running cool, Pennzoil is a brand dedicated to making sure it helps with peak engine performance.
