Question about Toyota Cressida
In the morning she starts on the turn.but as soon as she reaches working temp she keeps cutting out,but will start on the turn again and cut out
Some part of the ignition must have failed.. I would try a known good coil, doesn't have to be a new one, a used one just to check. The igniter (ignition module) can be taken off and tested at a parts store, usually for free.
You may have to look at a wiring diagram of the ignition circuit. The ecu controls spark timing, so the sensor it gets crankshaft position from is part of the ignition system. Whether Toyota used a crank position sensor or a pick up coil inside the distributor, I don't know, depends on the year a lot of the time. But that is another electrical component that may have to be tested. Good luck.

Have someone handy to press the gas pedal for you after the engine has warmed up well; best if driven.
While you listen at the exhaust pipe, have your helper increase the revs slowly and note whether the exhaust note changes to a hiss, instead of the sound of an engine firing.
You may have a decayed catalytic convertor and when they come apart inside, they can clog mufflers and resonators (the second, smaller muffler).
I've had this happen on more than one car and when it happened on a Fiat Strada years ago, since the routing of the system was fairly straight and made of heavier gauge stainless steel, I fired two shots with a .357 magnum into the tailpipe.
Never had another problem with it.

i had that problem, its the cam position sensor. i had that same problem, my car was cutting off in traffic and i had a hard time starting it back up. you have to hold the key for a very long time to get the motor to catch.. there was a recall a long time ago that the dealer has to reprogram or replace the CAMSHAFT POISITION SENSOR. it takes no time art all and i never had the problem again. i just happened to be looking up recalls one day and saw tht on a nissan forum and when i went to the local dealer the service guy swore up n down i was just blabin my gums but i got a second guy that knew of the issuse and it was fixed within that same hour. this happened to me about oct or nov 08 i had around 138-145k miles on the car then hope that fixes your problem

HI,HANNAH,I SUSPECT YOU HAVE AN IMMOBILIZER PROBLEM.IF THERE IS A ORANGE LIGHT FLASHING ON THE CLUSTER WITH AKEY IN IT THEN IT IS THE IMMOBILIZER.THE PROBLEM WOULD MORE LIKELY BE THE DATA FROM THE KEY IS NOT GETTING TO THE IMMOBILIZER CONTROL UNIT,USUALLY A BAD CONNECTION AT THE READER COIL ON THE IGNITION.YOU MUST CLOSE THE TERMINALS SLIGHTLY AND INSULATE THE WIRING SEPERATELY.ANDY
