Default car bogs out in warm weather only

My car has a problem with bogging out in warm weather,it runs great in cold weather.
I have replaced almost all my sensors except my crank shaft sensor and my knock sensor do any of these go hand in hand, my engine light goes on one day and off the next...also I replaced my thermostat recently but not mopar, will that make a difference? Just trying to see if I'm missing anything important.




Thanks for all your help!

I had a minivan that had that symptom turned out to be a crank sensor going bad. could be coinceidence but i thought the same thing and even rigged a switch to fan because i thought something was going crazy with that. warm days and it would die and might take a while to start back up and when it was cold days it seemed like no problems.

have you checked for codes?

From what i have read a bunch on this board that say only go with mopar parts for pt.

Good for you, someone posted an OE thermostat vs. a universal aftermarket.
IIRC, MOPAR had a rubber seal and a 'jiggler' instead of a bleed hole.

If you're getting a light, please do the keydance (on off on off on) and write down "P" codes; post.
