My husband replaced the thermostat and the housing broke so he replaced that. My only problem before that was no heat but now it is stalling out. any clues to what he has done. The car was running before this repair. She was purring like a kitten-no stalling at all. The air bag light began flashing a couple days ago and i think she may need a little oil(couldnt get top off). I went to start her this morning and she wouldnt turn all the way over. I started her again again she ran for a few seconds and shut off. She did the same things a couple more times. She finally she idled for me so i let her warm up for about 10 minutes. I went back and put her in reverse and she stalled again…and again..I couldnt get her out of the driveway. I did smell like antifreeze and she sounded like she was reving up and down in idle. Last weekMy husband had mentioned that he thought that the altenator might be going but we hadnt had any problem, so i asked he he knew how to test it.

Response:

you understand one has nothing to do with the other unless something was disconnected at the time of the repair.
if you would tell me other symtoms i will try to answer your issue?
how far or how long before it stalls and is there anything else going on at the time?
this is one  thing i would check the battery voltage and make sure your altenator is operating correctly.
Check your vaccuum lines for connections and cracks. There’s a diagram on the fan schroud to follow and they are colored.
Fix:
Thank you. We have fixed the prob…the hoses were not connected. Shes running well. Thanks alot for your help. Goodnight and blessings to you and yours.
