Is the check engine light on? A bad speed sensor or possibly another sensor could keep the vehicle from up shifting or limiting speed to bring it home in "limp in mode" Possible bad catalytic converter.

I have one cause in mind, because it's often so obscure and difficult to diagnose, yet easy to fix. It's afflicted several cars I own. There are numerous possible causes, of course, like a coil that isn't feeding enough energy to the spark plugs, a choke that's stuck, a fuel pump that's not pumping, an electrical malfunction. But the one that comes to mind is a bad "sock' in the fuel tank. This "sock" is a toothpaste-tube-like fine screen in the fuel tank that is supposed to prevent small particles of junk from entering the fuel lines and the fuel pump. Over time, the pores of this thing can become absolutely restricted--I don't know whether it's a reaction to the gasoline, or whether it's a natural result of the material aging, or what. Result: Hardly enough fuel gets to the engine for it to run. And, of course, the faster you go, the more fuel you need, and the more noticable the restriction is. I've had this happen to two of my Fords, one of my Chevies, and a Buick that a friend had--though, at the time he had his problem, I didn't realize what it was, so we went through the usual routine of replacing fuel filters and fuel pumps. I'd say it happened to my Lincoln, too, but the sock in that car actually disintegrated and wound up being jammed to the carburetor's filter by the fuel pump. Yet in the case of the Lincoln, I couldn't get past 20 mph until the problem was solved by removing the tank, flushing it, reinstalling it, and installing an in-line filter between the tank and the fuel pump. In your case, if a sock is really the problem, I'd remove the fuel sending unit in the tank, chop the sock off, and install an in-line filter. Take this course if you've determined that the car is starving for fuel and you're sure the fuel pump isn't bad. One other possible symptom of this sock problem is observed when the car runs decently in cooler weather and starves for fuel in warmer weather.

2000 contour, rplaced fuel pump(3 times) car starts will go to 10-15mph then stalls to idle. any ideas


How many miles are on the car. It sounds like it is going into limp home mode in the computer. If that is the problem you may have a catalytic converter that is plugged or nearly plugged. If the cat gets plugged if won't allow fuel to be pulled into the engine and causes it to stall. Have you ran a scanner on the car to check for trouble codes.

General advice:After warming up track the problem:sparkplugs (even new can have the ceramic parts broken/cracked /wiring (after warming up the isolation get's soft,can loose spark power)/ignition coil(s) (gets hot,stop runnig),running reach,fuel pump/fuel pump relay.Best guess:fuel pump mallfunction (low pressure) related,fuel filter cloged/water in the fuel/fuel line cloged/chipped. Cheers,hope u figure it out,let the people know.

What would make a 1999 Lincoln over heat I've


First the fuel pump would have nothing to do with the overheating.

Those cars I believe have electric cooling fans.. Make sure they are turning on when the engine is hot. If not check fuses and connections to the fan/fans.

Runs for about 20 miles and then cuts off. let it set for about 1 hr then startsup again please help. 88 ford bronco 2.


Ignition module on the distributor is bad....
you can check it by starting the truck and letting it run while you heat the ingnition module on the distributor up with a hair dryer... duplicating the time running x 20....
If this turns the truck off... replace the module... and carry an extra along in the glove box if you take any long trips...

I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan. When the gas gauge is just above the E it will stall out. It doesn't matter if I am on the freeway or driving around town. We put fuel injecter fluid in and it didn't help.The...


Your gauge is reading high ... I think you are out of gas. You should calculate your actual Miles Per Gallon - find out what the capacity of your tank is and fill accordingly. For esample, you actually get 15 miles per gallon, your tank is 20 gallons - you should be able to drive about 300 miles between fillups. At 250 miles, start looking for a station.

Recommended maintenence for 1999 cadillac such as throtle body, power steering, transmission, coolant, etc.


there is no maint required for the throttle body per say, just clean it if you develope a problem like stalling at idle, same goes for power steering, but a flush of the fluid every 30,000 miles is helpfull to extend life of pump and steering rack, the transmission needs to be given a fluid and filter change at least every 60,000 miles, the filters replaced for fuel and air every 30,000 miles and the spark plugs replaced at 100,000 miles.
