Starting point is some checks and tests.First,scan the car for diagnostic trouble codes.If a manfunction is occuring,it is highly likely that the vehicle computer has recorded and stored a trouble code or two.The trouble code will point to the system or subsytem or sensor that is malfunctioning.Every trouble code has a diagnostic route to resolve the problem.If you suspect a fuel problem,a pressure gauge should be hooked to the fuel injection rail to verify proper fuel pressure.Also look for vacuum lines that are cracked,deteriorated,or sucking air.Good luck.

Check all of your connections at the coil pack. Ensure that the coil packs do not have any corrosion under them were they connect into the base module or any of the connections, even plug wires. I had this same problem with my 2.2 in a 99' s-10. Pulled the coil apart, cleaned it up and and put di-electric grease on it, all better.

The amount that it gets hot is a clue but theres no shut off switch. It's possible that the car is over heating and the temp gauge does'nt have enought water over it to report the problem. once the cooling system is cleared as it's full circulating and the fan will come on when it's hot ( disconnect the temp. switch on the therostate cover on the top of the transmission, ( the stat is in the lower hose ) with it disconnected and the key on the fan should be on and connected f till it's real hot. The crank senser or distrubutor module can can too hot and shut down too

Hi there, have you checked the colour of the oil in the motor, if not clear or normal and have a milky look, it sounds like the head gasket is on the way, it will still drive but the symptoms sound like the head gasket, Check the oil. Hope this will be of some help to solve the problem
