It sounds as if you are having an issue with the ignition switch. They're common to go bad. You will need to replace the cylinder and switch combo, and then do an ignition relearn.

1987 f 150 6 cyl starts and runs till hot then wont till cooled off


Probably a bad ignition coil or a bad TFI module (the ignition control module). Much testing could be done to find the faulty part, but I believe if you take the TFI module to a parts store, it could be tested.

2000 dodge intrepid wont stay running


Have fuel pressure tested in both situations. I've seen fuel pumps quit once they get heated up, then when they cool, pump again. Perhaps try WD40 sprayed in to throttle body inlet when no start, and that will tell you if it's a fuel delivery problem. Just remove air cleaner intake hose at front of throttle body, and open throttle and spray for a second or 2 then try to start. If it fires up and runs for a second or 2, then it's a lack of fuel issue.

Quits after warm up wont restart


sounds like you have a fuel pump problem, fuel pumps will usually get hot and then shut off allowing it to sit 30 mins lets the pump cool down allowing it to start pumping, the way you can test it is get a can of starting fluid the next time it quits raise your hood and spray some fluid down into the throttle body and if it starts and then dies it is most likely your fuel pump, hope this helps.

1995 Cadillac STS-Northstar-changed the alternator, worked for a day, now it is doing the same thing display reads out low voltage, eng hot(it is not overheating), shuts down a/c, transmission seems like...


Check all ground connections, battery to motor ground, battery to body ground connections and motor to body ground strap. These can become corroded and produce all kinds of electrical problems. They may look all right but can be corroded underneath bolt.

04 Grand AM trouble starting in the sun.


I had a Honda Civic that did the same thing, I replaced the multi-relay (which has the computer power relay and fuel pump relay in it) in the car and it never did it again. Your car should have a seperate fuel pump relay, in the black box under the hood. You might also want to have the control module tested after the car sits out in the sun and won't start. Auto Zone can test them. I would also check for fuel at the test fitting on the fuel rail when it won't start. It maybe the relay.

Its the distributor module. The module in the dist. that tells the plugs to fire. When it gets hot it shuts down till it gets cool again. Had that same problem on several cars.
