Question about Toyota Mark
Cannot restart the engine once stop at normally high temperature (working temp.)
Do the dash lights come on? You might want to check the security system because at times it could be setting the anti theft kill switch, and after waiting a bit it will reset itself.... It could also be a bad ignition switch. Good luck!

There are only a couple things you can check. First, I would make sure the gauge is reading properly by checking the fluid temperature manually. Newer model cars have temperature sensors that can malfunction but they will usually set your check engine light off it that is the case. Check your radiator fluid. While the engine is cold!! See if it looks dirty. Rub it between your fingers and see how viscous it feels. Make sure the radiator is full. You may just need to get your radiator flushed. A lack of flow will cause an overheating condition. When your back in motion the engine has more pressure to circulate the fluid. When the car is moving there is airflow that also aids in the cooling process as well. Other than that you have a thermostat which could be sticking and causing it to overheat. Or the water pump is bad. A flush and fill and replacing the thermostat are fairly cheap and usually a lot easier to do than replacing the water pump. Especially on a Honda. Usually you will hear a squealing noise if your water pump is going out and there is, I think it is called a weep hole on the pump itself that will start to leak when the pump is going bad.

John, this sounds like a valve hanging up in the valve body. The car shifts when the govenor pressure overcomes throttle valve pressure in this valve body.
What is the condition of the fluid? Is it at all dark or grey, does it smell burnt? It should be a nice light pink. If not, have the fluild and filter for the trans changed. This may take care of the problem.
If the oil is really burnt, you are at the end of the life of the clutches and you are looking at a complete trans rebuild. If the oil is ok, a trans shop should be able to take just the valve body down, clean it and eliminate the problem without overhauling the entire transmission

i have had the same problem.the solution is the fuel pump! i know you got pressure and it runs so how can it be the fuel pump? the pump is losing its prime you are getting pressure just no volume thats why its crank off crank off the system is priming itself again kinda like a weedeater or similar motor fuel is there just not enough of it to the injector To check this hook a pressure gauge turn on key turn off key release fuel should be plenty but if tis just a few drops thats it hope this helps
