When my car warms up it dies

Hi Andrew,there can be a number of factors associated with this problem but the first one can be your fuel pump failure. When the pump is still cold it will function perfectly but when it warms up,it will loose pumping pressure leading to your car to die out.

i suggest you check your fuel pump pressure before looking any futhure.

I hope this will be of some assistance to you

4 months ago, out of nowhere, my 2001 gmc jimmy stalled. it seemed to run when my foot was not on the gas and bog out until it stalled when I stepped on the gas. It would turn over but not start. After...

I would say it may be the distributor, I would start there first. You may want to try a tune up first to see if it helps and I would definitely get my battery checked out since winter is approaching and it has been run down a few times. hope this helps tim

Car at speed and warm need accerlation the car will bog out.

Check the catalytic converter or possibly a fuel line in the tank that maybe craked or the sock on the end may be cloged.

Toyota Cressida's 1981 - 1984 body style was the same. The 81 thru 84 was the 2nd generation. A likely match !
