I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, Ign Control Module, Coils all 3, O2 sensor, plugs and wires. The problem I am having is this the car starts and Idles great but when the cooling fan kicks on the engine shuts off by itself.

Now heres the thing when the car is COLD it runs good but when it gets to temp and the fan turns on engine dies, then you have to wait for the car to cool down then restart it and it runs good until it warms up again.

I am in Afghanistan right now and my wife is fixing this herself as she is a pretty good mechanic but this is our only car and we need your help. PLEASE !


Thanks

Hi:
I'm sorry no one has replied sooner. If the fans are disconnected, does the car shut off?

It sounds like the ecm engine temperature sensor is shorting out causing the engine shut down.
