Visitor, 2.4L 4 Cylinder, Douglasville, GA, April 01, 2010, 10:35

HELP... MY PROBLEM STARTS WHEN DRIVING. I SEEMS THAT WHEN THE CAR GETS HOT IT WILL JUST SHUT OFF. WHEN THIS IS HAPPENING THE TACHOMETER WILL SPIKE TO AROUND 3-4000 RPM THE CAR WILL SLOW TO AROUND 30-40 MPH AND THEN JUST DIE. THIS WILL ALSO HAPPEN WHEN IT IS IN PARK GEAR AND JUST AT LOW IDEL.THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AND IT HAS SHOT CODES FOR INPUT&OUTPUT SENSORS, CRANK SHAFT&CAM SHAFT SENSORS. ALL HAVE BEEN REPLACED AS WELL AS GEN MANT. AIR FILLTER,SPARK PLUGS,OIL, TRANS.FILLTER AND FLUID. I ALSO NOTE THAT IN THE WINTER I NEVER HAD HEAT. I CHANGED THE THERMOSTAT. NOW THE TEMP GAUGE ON THE DASH WILL ONLY RISE JUST ABOVE COLD WHEN DRIVING,STILL NO HEAT. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER. TWO MECH. WORKING ON IT TOLD ME THAT THE COMPUTOR WAS SHOWING A CRANK SHAFT CODE. THEY THEN SAID THAT THE SENSOR WAS GOOD BUT WHEN THEY PUT AN OHMS METER ON THE WIRE HARNESS IT SHOWED CONTINUITY IN THE GROUND AND ANOTHER WIRE. THEY SPLIT THE HARNESS AND MOVED THE WIRES. ABOUT THIRTY MIN. LATER ONE OF THE MECH. CAME OVER TO ME AND SAID THAT HE WAS WRONG AND THAT NOW MY PCM WAS BAD. HE STATED THAT IT WAS GETTING TO HOT AND LOSSING CONNECTION AND CAUSING IT TO STALL. HE ALSO SAID THAT THE COMPUTER WAS NOT GETING ENOUGH AIR TO COOL IT DOWN. BACK TO THE TEMP.PROBLEM. I DID NOTICE THAT THE RAD. FANS ARE NOT COMING ON OFTEN AND STAYING ON LONG. DO YOU THINK THIS COULD BE MY PROBLEM. I AM FIXIN TO REPLACE THE TEMP. COOLING SENSOR AND ALSO THE HIGH&LOW RELAY'S. PLEASE HELP....
