Check the ground wires at battery to car body, battery to engine and the ground interconnect between the engine and the car body.

If you can get a fuel pressure gauge, check and see if the pressure is 16 to 24 lbs after the engine has warmed up.
I would connect the pressure gauge when the engine is cold, make sure it does not leak or touch anything hot, place the gauge between the hood and the windshield and drive the vehicle until it is at the temperature you feel it "starts hard". Shut the engine off and try to repeat the no start or hard start and make sure the pressure is correct.
Also, when you shut the engine off, watch the pressure and make sure it holds and does not drop to (0 LBS) of pressure.
One last question, has the fuel filter been changed in the past 30K.
Let me know.
Regards,

Hello Taz..might check the converter to make sure the exhaust system does not have excessive backpressure. Also make sure the electronic cooling fans are cycling...they should kick in and out. They are tied into the A/C system circuit with a relay.
The 3.1L and 3.4L V-6 Engine (VINs J, E - RPOs LG8, LA1) were known to have intake gasket failure. This was due to a bad gasket that was designed by GM...it had nylon in it...Over 400,000 of these were sold in Canada alone. The gasket has since been redesigned and torque specs recalculated. If you replace the manifold gaskets follow these guidelines.

Install a new design intake manifold gasket. The material used in the gasket has been changed in order to improve the sealing qualities of the gasket. When replacing the gasket, the intake manifold bolts must also be replaced and torqued to a revised specification. The new bolts will come with a pre-applied threadlocker on them.

Notice

An oil leak may result if the vertical bolts are not tightened before the diagonal bolts.


Diagonal bolts may require a crows foot to tighten.

Tighten

1. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).

2. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 7 N.m (62 lb in).

3. Tighten the vertical lower intake manifold bolts (1) to 13 N.m (115 lb in).

4. Tighten the diagonal lower intake manifold bolts (2) to 25 N.m (18 lb ft).

Good luck...i hope this helps.

SOURCE: 97 transport 3.4 engine- New radiator,

Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.

SOURCE: 92 dodge 3.0L overheating with or without

i have a 3 liter that over heats and boils aver aswell. The first time this happened i could not figure it out. i changed the thermostat and tested the fan. the fan always cut in. i even took it off and hooked it strait to 12volts. i drove it around for a couple of minutes and it got hot agian. well it was hot i turned the a/c on witch should automaticly turn the fan on and it didn't turn on. after more testing i found that for some reason that the fan would work most of the time but not always. it seemed when it missed a cycle for some reason it never caught back up until the engine cooled down from being turned off. i changed the fan and it worked great. for about a month. i changed the fan and it worked again for about another month. my suggestion is head for a post. worked good for me. hhah

1998 ford explorer only starts with gas pedal to the floor and stalls when put in gear


Had this issue with a 2000 V-6 explorer. Check engine light was not on but I thought I would see what was going on as I kept feathering the engine running, hooked up the scanner and ran live data stream. When I got to engine coolant temp. it was reading 8 degree Fahrenheit and only went up to 16 degrees. Since you have to remove the upper intake to get to the engine coolant temperature sensor, I replaced the sensor and the sender. Truck has been running great.....

Reinstalling the distributor can be tricky due to the worm gear. Did you verify that the rotor points to the #1 terminal when piston #1 is at tdc? Can you check the timing with a light?

Changing head gaskets


If you are referring to the intake manifold, be very certain that you have removed all of the bolts from the upper and the lower intake manifolds. Here are some diagrams that might be useful to you.

If you are certain that all of the bolts are removed from the manifolds, then you can break the seal holding the intake manifold by using a large screwdriver, wedge it between the intake manifold and the cylinder head and you should then be able to pry up the intake manifold and get it to break loose.

You did not specify what engine you had so these diagrams are for a 1998 3.8 litre V-6 engine. I hope that they will be of any use to you.8d58a40.gif97f8120.gifc0dadb4.gif332b28c.gif0f0a8e9.gif

You have to adjust the distributor to get get rid of the cam/crank correlation code. but you need a scanner to do this right. You have to run the engine at 2000 rpm and turn the distributor so it reads 0 degrees of cam offset on the scanner
