Check the crank sensor and cam sensor. That two sensor or one of it gets outs of specs when engine heats and temperature gets slightly warm. then it don't function as it has to. but when engine cool down it will function. again when engine heats up it don't function. check the faulty and replace the faulty sensor

SOURCE: motor shuts down

Have you checked/tested the fuel pressure? sounds like a bad pump and or plugged fuel filter, check the pressure, if it is low replace the filter, if that still doesn't help you will need a new fuel pump, it is located in the fuel tank.

SOURCE: 2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick

SOURCE: Whether I am driving or when I shut down my car

If you're HHR is a 2006 (maybe 2007), looking up at your dome lamp, there is a three position switch (OFF-ON-ON w/ DOORS), check that the position of this switch isn't ON. On later models, the dome lamp ON-OFF is controlled through the instrument panel dimmer on the center of the dash above the radio.

SOURCE: Car shuts down after 20 minutes of driving

a likely problem is a fuel pump going it gets warm, it heats up the wiring inside and they expand causing a loss of connection inside the pump...As it cools, it comes back together and works again...when it dies out turn the key off and listen closely for the pump to hum when you turn the key on...If it doesn't wait for it to cool and then when you try again listen and if you hear it and it starts, that's your problem...fuel pumps will go bad quickly if you don't keep your tank at least a quarter to half full as the gas is what keeps it cool so it don't get too hot and melt the shellac on the wiring which will eventually short out...

This usually happens when the crank or the cam sensor starts to go bad. The crank sensor will get hot and shut the spark off to the plugs. When it cools it will start up again untill it is completely no good. I would replace the crank sensor.

94 eldorado stalls

First impression is a MAP sensor. If you take the car to a service station or an auto parts store that features free diagnostic tests, I'm sure the MAP sensor fault will appear. Other cause could be the TPS which controls the idle at cold,warm, and AC operation settings. It's possible that you're stalling due to insufficient idle speed setting on the TPS.

Various sensor issues, car just won't seem to ever run quite right.

check the coolant tempature sensor it is going to be located on the block. this sensor will make it not want to start without the pedal pushed and it will make the engine shutter alittle. this sensor tells the computer what tempature the engine is at and when to idle down or up with the tempature.
