What is the problem

Car will not continue to run, shuts off repeatedly .


It seems you have a heat related issue. If your CEL is on, I would have the error codes scanned. If no check engine light, I would suspect a bad throttle position sensor or crank sensor. But before spending any big money on parts, I would first spend some money on a can of throttle body cleaner. If you know your way around a car, remove your throttle body and clean it as much as possible. Remove and clean your Idle Air Control valve as well. Remove your EGR valve and spray that down. You can get on Youtube and check out the "how to" videos if you need help. If after cleaning you still have the issue, I would say that it's time to start replacing the sensors I mentioned above. Keep us posted.....
