No engine codes?

You might have a short in the ignition wiring or a faulty crank sensor possibly due to the accident that is just now manifesting itself.

The car runs great until the components warm up...a break occurs and then letting the car cool down allows the breaks to come back together.

You need to see what goes away when the cars dies. Is it spark? Fuel? Everything?

Good luck and be careful!

When this stall or fails to start occurs have a pressure gage hooked up to the fuel injection pressure test port (top of engine in the pipe that supplies the fuel to injectors) and see if you are losing fuel pressure.
