You cooling system is vapor locked, is there a small 5/16 hex head screw or bolt at thermostat housing, most newer cas have this to bleed the air out of block and hoses.Its building pressure do to not enough water in block. System seams to be full but is not. Hope this helps!
I would check mass air flow sensor, If you or anyone else has removed the wiring clip to it, you need to recheck the connection. The otter pin in the harnnes clip likes to kick sideways and not make connection when put back on, and yes the darn thing will connect back in without forcing, I prommiss. I would have diagnostics tested, but this is where i would start. My good freind had this problem with the clip, but only after replacing mass air sensor. The original was bad and givivg your symptons. Let me know what ya find and good luck!
My alternator was getting weak, but before i could change it, i went to go to work, and after starting and turning on head lights i saw alternator gage fall. put it back in garage and changed alternator and battery and now refuses to charge. checked all connections and seems to fine. HAD NEW ALTERNATOR TESTED BEFOR INSTALL, DUE TO THE FUN JOB OF WORKING ON A VAN. could it be something from the small wire clip and where do these wires run to and what for. THANKS FOR ANYONES HELP, Sinserly Rich
