If the cleaning and tightening of connections doesn't help (it very well could; this is a common problem) then the starter or starter solenoid are probably at fault.
BTW, when removing battery cables, always remove the negative (ground) terminal first.
Doing this then reduces the chance of striking a grounded point when removing the positive clamp of hitting ground with a wrench and damaging the tool and battery.
If you are removing the negative and hit any grounded point nothing happens then the battery's path is interrupted for the removal of the positive clamp.
You should also not fail to follow the positive cable down and find the connection at the other end which will terminate at either a separate solenoid or an integrated one mounted on the starter and remove the cable to clean those terminals too since either end of the chain of connections could cause problems.
Doing this will alos let you see where the starter is mounted. They are nestled with the engine with their working end hidden in the transmission bell housing which is easy to recognize. With the transverse drive train of your car, the starter is most likely located between the engine and front of the car although it could be sandwiched between the firewall and engine; much less 'fun' to remove. The starter will be held by a maximum of three bolts which may be of different lengths so try to keep them in some kind of order otherwise remounting the starter could be annoying. Once out of the car, clean the bolt threads to make the reassembly easier and I usually use a dot of clean oil on the threads which keeps them free of rust and easier to remove in the future. Bolts should never bind to produce a tight fit, they act as springs and stretch slightly when properly torqued.
If you plan on doing your own light maintenance (that would include starter or other auxilliary items), I suggest you invest in an aftermarket service manual such as those published by Haynes or Chilton which will be invaluable in answering many questions you might have in the future and cna be had on line or at any auto parts store. They cost from ~$20-$30 US and are detailed enough to allow you to tackle about anything you can do without having a shop available.
You might want to consider buying a 'remanufactured' starter through an chain auto parts store, one that offers a 'lifetime' warranty on them. This could save you 1/3-2/3 of the cost of new and when done properly, will be as durable as new.

SOURCE: car shuts off when it gets hot
your ignition coil are going bad, they need to be replaced. once the car gets hot the circuit shut down the car when hot. once they cool your riding again until they get hot. thats your problem. Good Luck
