    check fluid level, make sure that the cooling fan is coming on, bad water pump and thermostat, or bad coolant temp sensor, check the sensor wire with amp meter for voltage

Check the ignition timing. If it is okay, check the ignition coil. Defective ignition coil stop functioning when hot and will be good again when it cooled down.

Did they figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when it fails to start up ? You would need to know which to proceed.

1992 chevy truck wanting to run hot and then gets rough idling like it is going to die out have to give it gas


So you attack the overheating problem first before you blow an engine.

Thermostat, fan clutch, water pump, blockage in cooling system or low coolant level are some of the possibilities.
Is the gauge showing hot when it is overheating ?

92 ford focus runs fine but won't start after


If car is parked for 45min running will it restart?
Most likely you have a fuel pump getting hot & shutting down cools off & then will restart. The fuel pump relay could also do this.

96 Stratus wont restart after it is warmed up, dealership has changed distributor, computer, crank pos sensor, coolant sensor, oxygen sensor


What about the spark control Module? Sometimes when these get hot they either run rough or die and won't restart until it cools down.

1997 f150 starts runs ruf temp spikes dies turn key off 30sec sta


Just had a similar issue with my 1995.. started with replacement of the thermostat.. that didn't help. Turns out it's apparently the fan-clutch. Essentially, when there is stress on the engine (driving), the fan actually cuts off and makes it run hot... and my F-150 doesn't like to run hot - starts running rough as well. I'd still start with the thermostat since it's a cheap part and easy to get to.

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.

Replace the Ignition Control Module located on the side of the distributor. It is just about the size of your palm. However it's a pricey little bugger...
