The crank sensor is causing the car to die. When it gets hot the resistance builds up and it will not read the crank signal. Then the car will die. When it cool the sensor will read again. You wont get spark if the crank sensor is not reading the ecm doesnt see the signal and will not allow the coil to fire.

Car stalls and will not restart while hot


Try a used computer from a salvage yard. They are cheap. Crank sensor or cam sensor may also be bad. Not sure which one that model has.

2003 Pontiac Vibe - 4 Cyl. 150k miles. Ignition coils keep going bad - every 4-6k miles. Coil 1 has been replaced 4 times, Coil 3 once. Coil 4 twice in the past year (20k miles). All spark plugs


Install new spark plugs, 4 new coils & replace the oxygen sensors

O2 Sensors are only good for 100,000 miles, then slow
down or quite

No idea why the coils do not last 5 or 6 years

Cylinder #1 is always at the front on a 4 cyl

Go to Rock Auto --Buy Wells Coils,NGK Double
Platinum Plugs & NTK O2 Sensor

Those parts are expensive because you have a Totota
Motor I guess

Replaced all 3 ingition coils, the car car ran fine for at least 60 miles now the car fires off but will not run, no wires crossed could it be the timeing?


Well I guess you have a 3.something in there, So I would suggest you have the ignition module checked. I haven't seen all three coils go out at the same time, not saying it couldn't happen, just not probable. I have replaced alot of ignition modules. These modules do alot of funny things. most common is they work when they are cold and mess up when there hot.

It is probably engine-related, seems to do this under load. How long has it been since you replaced the plug wires? Have you ever replaced the ignition coil(s)? It sounds like a classic secondary ignition issue, so I'd look at those first, depending on miles on the clock you might just be due to replace one, or both-the plug wires are not too expensive and easy to replace, throw in a set of plugs while you do the wires too and you will probably be alright.

1991 Mazda 626 DX dies suddenly after running for 10 minutes.


Hello, It sounds like an engine ignition control module gone out or a coil. They get hot and quit working after a short period of time, cool off then work again till they get hot.
Is the ignition system pointless electronic or does it have points? Are you getting any fire at all now to the cylinders? Does the tach in the vehicle show any RPM's during cranking? Do you have voltage at the positive side of the ignition coil? Does the coil meet the ohm ratings for that years vehicle ignition? Does the vehicle have oil in it so the oil pressure sensor allows the engine to run, this may not be an option on your particular vehicle? You can check most of this out with a volt/ohm meter. Check your voltages before starting the vehicle, during running and after it quits to see where the loss is. Just don't get near the center tap of the coil or you will get a rude awakening and/or serious injury. Good luck, RAC
