Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

SOURCE: Dies after running about 2 minutes

It's got all the symptoms of a leak in the fuel line. You may want to start backward at the tank and work your way all the way to the carb to find it but it would be surprising if it was something else. All the best.

1996 mustang dies and then will restart in a few minutes


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

94 VW Golf. Starts and runs sitting, drive it about 10 mins and it just dies and won't restart. Have changed Coil, wires, plugs, cranck shaft sensor. Fuel Pump/Filter?


a)When you go to restart it does it die right after restart?
b)Does it die after you put it in gear after restart?
c)Doesn't restart at all?
Not sure if you changed fuel pump? If you did eliminate it from cast of characters.
