Question about 1988 Ford F 150
Runs good in cold weather dies in hot weather
Lost of things. Catalytic Convertor plugged, mass airflow sensor bad. timing chain jumped. Does it pop through the tower when running? Do have a diagnostic tester at your grasp? Sometimes this is the only way to test and fix. High milesge leads me to believe timing chain or plugged cat. Check the fuel filter also. Itr may be plugged. Your fuel pump could be bad also, but I doubt it, otherwise it wouldn't make it ten minutes.

You have a faulty sensor. The engine will run on predetermined sensor perimeters loaded on the computer when the engine is cold. Once the engine reaches operational temperatures, the computer then takes readings from the various sensors on the vehicle. If one is not operating correctly, it throws out bad readings and makes the vehicle run poorly.
The only way to have and idea of what sensor is causing the issue is to have your codes read. Take it to a parts store such as Autozone or Advance Auto and they will read your codes for free. You can then determine what is likely the problem.
If I had to guess, and assuming it's a sensor, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the O2 sensor or the ECT sensor. It's difficult to guess with such limited information.
