Most likely a ground problem. Battery to body, battery to engine, engine to body. There are also grounds inside the car that needs checked.

SOURCE: 95 saturn won't start when hot

Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

Try changing the fuel filter and checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. The readings should be 60 to 65psi with the fuel line pressurized with the engine not running, once the engine is running. It should drop by 5psi. Start with the simple things first. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

2003 Buick 3800 engine 82,000 actual miles on it multiple/random misfire code How it started.. Car was running fine. Check engine light started flashing and engine started missing. What...


You can't rule anything out yet. It could be a plug or injector among other things, but probably not low fuel pressure. If you have a code 300 and nothing else, you may have to wait until the problem gets bad enough to set additional codes. And if any of the sensors fail, such as the cam or crank sensors, you'll get a code for those to be tested.
Have the plugs been checked or replaced in the past 30,000 miles ?

Where is my auto shut down relay switch on a 99 cadillac deville


No, this is not a SHUT DOWN RELAY.. The Emergency Fuel Shut off is one on... It is ON until you reset.

you are having a Heating system Electrical and you are getting Feedback into your System and it will continue until you address the root of the problem.

When car gets to normal operating temp it shuts down will not restart until cools off


Not necessarily. There was a re-call on the cooling system a few years ago. Check with your mechanic about that. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Engine shuts down


The only way to know for sure is to hook a gauge to the rail and check the fuel pressure when it won't start.
Sitting for a few minutes and restarting is normally a sign of a relay or coil cooling off.
There should be a EEC relay that powers the dist module and ECM.
I know you said you have spark, but it could be something else
related.
Also, if you have spark at the right time and no fuel pressure, you should be able to use starting fluid to substitute.
I don't suppose you have dual tanks and the switching valve is the problem ?

If no evidence of anything wrong with the codes your being told to check. It might be your ECM is bad, I had a friend had similar problems and they put a new ECM in it and it ran great again.

may be a bad crank sensor or on its way out. evidently when it gets hot it shuts engine down. a bad crank sensor will stop engine while driving, and will not restart for about 15 to 20 minutes later. it will keep repeating this until it is fixed. usually it sets a problem code. but other sensors have gone bad and no codes or light is not on.

It could be something as simple as a bad or loose ground wire but the hard part is finding it.
