Have them check the ignition !!!

I had a 1990 Cutlass that did the same thing. It would turn over but not start when it got hot too or just cut out on me right on the road. I had it in the shop 2x's , thought it was fixed and got it out of the shop only to have it die later that night in the pitch dark. I had it towed back to the shop , they let it run , hoping it would cut out and it did. It was the ignition.. when it would overheat it would just shut off the car ... you couldn't start it peroid! Like you said 20 to 30 minutes later when it cooled down the car would start back up just fine ... then you'd drive it , it would heat back up, the car wouldn't start again for another 20 to 30 minutes !

hope that helps !

1998 land rover discovery 1 dies in water and wont start.

From what you describe the pump itself is probably OK or it would not run at all.
You obviously still have a water problem in the pump wiring or in the pump itself. Get under the vehicle and trace the wires all the way back to the engine bay, starting at the pump. Dry everything you can reach with a hairdryer (not a heat gun - too much heat). Once you figure it is all dry, spray every connection with electrical parts cleaner.
If this doesn't fix the problem you may have to consider replacing the wires - not as difficult as it sounds.

Fixer uper 89 lx 5.0 trouble when hot

That could be coming from a couple of places. first thing I would do if it is an automatic tranny, replace the tranny filter and flush the fluid. If that is not it, check the intake/exhaust manifold gaskets. One of these could have rotten out from old age. Finally, if once the engine heats up, if the oil pressure drops dramatically once the engine is warmed up, rod bearings and main bearings have gone out on it.
