What happens when engine heats up to operating temp?

As the engine heats up the ring-cylinder mate becomes looser so that the engine will run smoother and easier…but if there is too much wear the combustion gases will begin to blow by the ring-cylinder surfaces and will cause each stroke to lose power.

Why does a car run when it’s cold?

While cold, the ring-cylinder mate is tight, keeping the combustion gasses from blowing by and allowing the engine to run.

What causes a car to stall on a cold start?

It also manages the idle under changing engine loads, like when you kick on the air conditioning, turn on the headlights, or turn up the radio. When the idle air control valve malfunctions, you may experience a rough idle or the vehicle may stall entirely. This is especially true on cold starts.

Why does my car stall at highway speeds?

The engine may start and idle fine, but run out of power or even stall at highway speeds. If the engine starts right back up after stalling, the likely cause is low fuel volume delivery because of a weak pump. If the engine is running normally one minute, but suddenly quits, loss of ignition may be the problem.

When does a shorted sensor cause an engine to stall?

A shorted sensor doesn’t always set a check engine light or MIL (malfunction indicator light). The computer is programmed to trigger a “service engine soon light” when the sensor has failed for a predetermined amount of time, say one minute, it only takes an intermittent shorting sensor one second to stop the computer system (stall engine).

What to do when your Craftsman engine stalls?

Check for a partly blocked fuel line, fuel filter, or tank vent,possibly even something inside the carburetor. Also, check if you still have spark when the unit is hot and stalls out. Sometimes an ignition coil or spark plug can work fine when cold but short after having enough time to heat up. Change the plug.

Why does my Briggs and Stratton engine stop after 10 minutes?

Letting it sit until it cools possibly allows enough time for air to seep in and equalize the pressure so it’s good for another 10 minute run. Is the engine sputtering and slowly dying or when it’s good and hot is it like you flipped a switch? If it’s running fine and then just dies it could be the ignition coil failing when it gets hot.

Why does my Ford F-100 run so hot?

You need to isolate the fuel lines from the hot intake manifold, raise them up & away from everything and install a one inch phenolic gasket/spacer between the carb and the intake manifold and that should solve your problem.
