Its starting to get hot outside and if my car runs for more than 30 mins then is forced to idle for a while the car will sometimes surge or die but will start right back up.I thought it was the thermostat sticking because the temp gauge was always reading half way to the left and not in then middle when the car would get warm and would shoot up past half way if I was stopped for any longer than a min or so. I replaced it during winter and thought I fixed it but now summers here and im forced to use the ac but the ac starts to malfunction when I accelerate or if I use it extensively when it is working right and come to a stop the car goes silent and dies.I wont even know its dead till I hit the gas and look down and realize all the gauges are at zero. Also the car has two engine fans and I have noticed that the passenger side does not come on. The rpm speedometer was also sticking and fluctuating while the car would surge when I would accelerate but seems to have gone away with the recent oil change. I have also recently replaced the spark plugs, wires, battery, thermostat, pcv valve, evap control valve solenoid, fuel filter, air filter, gas treatment, added coolant, and check the refrigerant. To fix the stalling would I need to replace the air idle sensor or the engine coolant sensor or a combination of both. And any other ideas would help. Im just so fustrated.
have the same problem?
