Possibly control module, they like to fail when they get hot, if you can find it (in or by the distributor) and take it off, some auto parts stores can test them

1987 f 150 6 cyl starts and runs till hot then wont till cooled off


Probably a bad ignition coil or a bad TFI module (the ignition control module). Much testing could be done to find the faulty part, but I believe if you take the TFI module to a parts store, it could be tested.

Bad cam shaft senser


You could have a faulty engine coolant sensor or intake air temperature sensor. Fuel injectors clogged or dirty flooding engine.
Clean fuel injectors, replace fuel filter and air filter, and see if the problem persists.
If it does ECT sensor is bad. If CMP sensor was bad, the vehicle won\'t start whether cold or hot. CKP senso and CMP sensor work together if either one fails, the vehicle won\'t start. Have the vehicle code scanned.

My Chrysler voyager 2003 - switched off while driving and the engine light just came on and and engine went of , but the engine was also hot when open the bonnet.


If it won't start now, you would need to check for spark to the plugs and fuel pressure along with trouble codes in the computer.
You'll need to know what direction to go in to proceed.
It's possible the computer shut down the engine if it was too hot, but your temp gauge should have reflected that.

I have a 86 camaro 2.8L run good till it gets warm then die's won't start again till it cools. getting fuel and spark.


I have a 1985 Camaro and if the switch for the fan is off then it overheats. There is a fan that can be installed. My switch is on the left of my steering wheel. Tune up is always good. Have your alternator checked, if it's old can be a problem maybe. New spark plugs can't go wrong. Good Luck!!!

Is there a thermostat shut off switch . car runs


The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too
