I had the same problem. It probably is the distributor. Change only the magnetic part of the distributor.

Possibly ignition coil,or crank sensor, however it a process of elimination when it wont start. difficult to say online because there are many things that can cause this problem. I would start by seeing if it has a spark at the plugs. Remove plug lead, get another plug of and push it into the lead. earth the threads of the plug to the engine and crank it. if there is no spark then you have to go further down that avenue. i fyou do have spark then your looking at fuel possibly.

Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.


I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

1998 vw passat 1.8 wont start hot


In a lot of cases, this is an indication that the starter is faulty. A bad starter will often start a car when it's cold (ie first thing in the morning or after sitting a few hours). Once hot, the starter requires more and more energy to turn over. If when hot, you are able to start the car with a jump start, the starter would be the first place to investigate.

I have a 1995 4runner automatic, 3vze(?)v6 engine. About two years ago I had to have the head gasket replaced($2700.00). It was done in the spring, so I didn't use the heater until the fall and found I had...


The jiggle valve is just to assist in ensuring no air trapped behind the thermostat.It is important but only really at the bleeding air out stage.When it gets hot,throw the heater on,it should get hot and the temperature will come down or stabilise.I would recommend removing the radiator and having the top tank removed and the core tubes cleaned thoroughly. Refit it and ensure that you fill it slowly to allow air to escape.Use a good quality coolant too.Get back with your findings if fix still needed and I will endeavor to pinpoint repair needed.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the ignition coil. If the ignition coil gets hot the car may stall or may not start right away till it cools down. The ignition coil is surely faulty and replacement is surely necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
