Re: HELP! Stalling as soon as the engine gets warm.

Hmmm. Well I don't know a thing about these cars but what you said is interesting. So do the fans come on at a specific temperature? Or do they come on when the motor is turned on. You mentioned "fans" so I researched and see that the GTAs have two from the factory. Also someone wrote that one fan will come on when the a/c is turned on. Well, at 110 degrees would that be hot enough to trigger the fan(s) to come on if they only come on at a specific temperature range? If the fans should be coming on but are not, would there be some sort of feature that causes the motor to be cut off so it's not damaged from overheating?
