It could actuall be a couple things. A relay could be frozen, fuel lines have moisture and need to get a bottle of isopropyl, Could be the cold start sensor on an injector, could be loose vacuum hose.

It doesnt do it when cold and starts fine it only seems to be when its been run for a bit


You left out the problem. All I know is something happens when warm or hot. All I can tell you is parts heat up and when they get old they fail to work properly. Sensors going bad will heat up and spike voltage to ECM and cause a stall. Overheating check your radiator for leaks or low coolant. Fill accordingly and run a few minutes with cap on loose to remove air. Air pockets in cooling lines causes car to overheat.

Stalling and hesitation, all 4 cylinders misfiring, once warmed car seems to run ok


More than likely , I hate to say, it is the coil packs. If the plugs were fouled it would not change to running fine after warm up. If you do change the coil packs, change the plugs while you are in there.

4 cyl Engine starts and idles ok...give it throttle and it dies


I need to get a clear mental picture of what exactly is happening.

With this said, you stated that the car "runs fine" until warmed up.

Q: When you start the car when cold it idles fine?
Q: If you allow the car to idle until "fully" warmed does the car stall?
Q: As the car begins to warm up, Does the RPM fluctuate abnormally?
Q: Does the car Only stall when you press on the gas pedal or does it stall just sitting and idling in addition to pressing the gas pedal?
Q: If you can drive it while cold does the car stall during acceleration when warm or only at Stop Signs / Lights?
Q: If you wait 20min or so, can you start the car again?
Q: How many miles are on the car?

Will not start when engine warm


Sounds more like your ignition module is getting hot and not working. I'd go there first before replacing the ECM. You can remove the ignition module and most NAPA stores have the ability to test them for you. Make sure they test it at least 5 times. This way it'll simulate starting and stopping.

Its because that the engine is very cold, try to worm it up more time before you start driving.
