Question about Cars & Trucks
I suspect that the start/run capacitor has failed and the motor is overheating and the thermal overload is kicking in until it cools down and then allows it to restart
have an electrician check it out because if it is that ( $20>$ 40 to replace plus time ) is way cheaper than new motor

the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.

Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)
Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)
