Sounds like a clogged fuel filter in the gas line. You may have let the fuel level get too low in the tank and the deposits were pumped into the filter and clogged it!

SOURCE: car loses power when driving, stops starts and is

no what is most likely happening is a fuel filter is getting full after running a few minutes and by turning it off it backflushes and is clear enough to run again till it clogs up again

When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

1997 lexus ls 400 cranks over but will not start

A mechanic would use starting fluid to suppliment the fuel supply. Then check for fuel pressure with a gauge.
It could be the pump relay among other things.

2002 vw beetle put gas in car got a block from home it stopped running ...took gas out of car it was watered .....cleaned it as the manual said....put gas in car still wouldn't start..put on machi

If you have spark problem most likely is fuel. I would replace fuel filter. Check for fuel at engine before and after injector. Could be a blocked injector. The contaminated gas probably messed up the fuel injector

When engine is warmed up the car begins hesitating

I really think it's the TPS, (throttle positioning sensor) on the throttle body. When this sensor is defective or out of position the vehicle will idle like that and even stall. If you haven't had it scanned, you should do so, that will probably tell you the problem.
