      I have seen problems with the transmission solenoid failing and causing this to happen. When the car warms up the solenoid sticks causing the torque converter to not detach and engine stalls and dies. Are there any codes store in the PCM? Could be a fuel problem also, there may be enough fuel to idle but not enough to pull a load.

      The short answer - probably

      This is based on the detail you supplied. To further confirm this, if the click you hear when you go to start it is a singke rather heavy click that sounds like its coming from the starter motoir, then yes

      Have you checked your Idle Air Control Valve (IAC)? It may not be sensing correctly and not able to meter your fuel delivery correctly. If this was faulty it wouldn't trigger the check engine light. Sometimes cleaning them does the trick. You can use CRC throttle body and air intake cleaner. It's like 7 bucks at Autozone.

      The english here is confusing me. Could you get help with translation and I will try to assist you? "panel beaters"? Check engine light? Can you plug ion a code reader and read fault codes? Can you detail the white smoke further? How does the engine run?

    In replacing "Flex pipe" what piece causes the loudness?
    car is very loud, runs great.

      The catalytic converter incorporates a "flex pipe" into it. So not sure what you are asking for exactly. You would purchase a complete new catalytic converter ass'y. If you go online and look it up you will see a flex pipe in it. The flex often cracks and makes noise. But you have to confirm what it is that you need.

      It gets ear piercing noise from the flex pipe breaking off at connection to the exhaust pipe

      Replace both upstream O2 sensors and if that does not solve it then you have a clogged catalytic converter on that bank.

    Blowing Fuses on am 2 circuit
    Why is it blowing fuses on the AM 2 circuit, but won't blow it with mass air flow sensor disconnected

      Ohm check your mass air flow sensor. You shouldn't have low ohms anywhere in the plug. I would say its shorted inside but I would check it first. Those are kind of spendy
