If it will start by using starting fluid sprayed into the intake, you have a fuel problem. If it won't, you may have a spark problem.
Something that fails when it gets hot could be a relay or other electrical component. Could also be a dist cap or rotor issue.

Sounds like you are losing fuel pressure or the ignition module is shutting down when it gets hot. Check for spark when the car is in the no start condition. If spark is ok then install a fuel pressure tester and let car run. When it dies the pressure should be less than 15 psi. You may need a mechanic for this. Best possibility is that you will need a new fuel pump or ignition module.

1991 mazda mx6 start ,runs for 15 minutes then shuts off and wont start for a hour later i changed ignition coil ,cap n rotor but no luck


This Sounds Axactly Like A INTERMITTEN IGNITION CONTROL MODULE Problem.
Check for SPARK While The NO START CONDITION is IN EFFECT and if NO SPARK
Replace IGNITION CANTROL MODULE
BUT If you DO Have SPARK then Go to the Fuel System and Start at the FUEL PUMP and EUS a PRESSURE GAGE to Check for PROPER FUEL PRESSURE, Also Fuel FILTER Could be A Candidate NOT VERY LIKELYBut Still Still May at Liest CONTRIBUTE to this Condition. But My Experience POINTS at The Ignition Control Module

Starts and dies on acceleration then will not run


crank shaft position sensor is most likely cause. Do check ignition and fuel pump relays with an ohmmeter to make sure they are not faulty. Check power to ignition module. You can also check crank sensor with the ohmmeter. Check all vacuum hose and also check throttle position sensor.

I have 1990 Celica GT 2200. no spark to plugs/power to fuel pump


need to change rotor and cap , and might as well change wires and spark plugs if its due for a tuneup! yeah have your ignition control module check if it doesn't start after replacing every thing else.

No spark?


well more questions then answers but a step closer.. good fuel pressure? check the throttle body when someone turns it over. did you try starter fluid ( put on the air cleaner for it, so it dont back fire) anyway if it runs on starting fluid then its fuel delivery system. . Basics three things to run. air, fuel, spark. you have all of these? in good supply? then look to compression and condition of dist. cap and rotor.
