Have to wait for car to warm up for transmission to engage. Once warm it runs good, except the cruise control will activate by itself.

I push on the gas petal and i swear i could push the car faster then it goes and in a 1/4 mile it would normally get up to 60 less then halfway through a 1/4 mile and now i am lucky to 45 now in a 1/4 mile. (The 1/4 mile is from my diveway to the stop sign at the end of my road.) Then one day went to auto zone to get a cooling fan relay (Just the high fan) put the new one in and that is when it started not getting up and going) But once you get up to speed, well basically once your in 3rd gear or higher, no poblems, i can step on the gas and it gets up and goes like it should runs beautiful, but come to a stop and it take for ever to get up to speed. Before it had overheating issues because we didn't know it at the time that the cooling fans didn't work and it was super hot this past summer and there is a small crack in the radiator. Could it have something to do with the vacuum system, ive checked the lines and they are good, and connected they are only about 6 months old. (It is the 3.8Litter V6 and the tranny was rebuilt about a year ago because it was slipping. ) It would be awesome if you could answer this question. Thank you

its kinda like it locks up but if you put back in park it will start right back up

Drove about 10 miles the car would stall while driving about every 2 miles. I noticed it stalled while just ideling after about 3 minutes. Each time it starts to shutter like its starved right before it dies. It usually starts back up right away. No check engine light. Fluids are good. When I reached my destination the car sat for about 2 hrs. On the drive back home it ran normal (good). Just bought the car last week from a used car lot. 1994 with only 84,000 miles.
What could it be?

could i just buy the headers would it be something i could put in myself i'm not a machanic but i have a freind who is. but i need to get from here las vegas to kelso washington asap do you think its possible for s to fix in one day and do u think it would get us there with no problems

No problems with engine starting, ideling, rpm, or stalling. Trans shifts correctly, reverse gear ok. After starting and placeing trans in D virtuly no acceleration movement unless the accelerator pedal is depressed almost comlpetely and then speed is slow untill pedal is completely depressed and then it takes off rapidly. Engine service soon light illuminates, crankshaft sensor and start control moduel replaced. No take off speed initially, I am baffeled.

car is slow to shift speedometer/odometer not working

I am thinking thermostat, just seem funny the colder out it is the less heat I get, want to get it done before winter

engine stalls while driving/sometimes will not start

can you reused a anti theft device from another car

where are the blower resisters located

I have a 3800 v6 we have done a compression test all cylinders are at 150 psi. cooling system pressure check holds 18lb. no oil in coolent or coolent in oil. engine runs smooth, and starts easy. Runs well and not overheating running at normal temp. cooling fans working. How ever the exhaust manifolds get very hot. much hotter then the engine and when you hold the gas to about 2000rpm they turn cherry red. starts close to the heads and moves down the exhaust. Any one ever have this problem?

my car will not start becauce the security system locked my keys out

alternator will not charge,battery alternator checked,good what could it be pcm replaced

I just started getting the 'service engine soon' light and had it scanned with 10 code failures and cleared those codes. The next day after driving 10 miles, it came on again and went to the shop to have it scanned and had 12 code failures and only 2 were repeated from the first scan. Does this sound like the computer control module is gone, or should I try to eliminate the codes by trial and error?
