Impossible to accurately answer without any knowledge of the car's service history and the climate you're currently in.

But given that it seems to cope OK with the first cold start of the day, and then has trouble it suggests that an ignition coil is failing due to overheating. But this is not a definite given the lack of detail inherent in your question.

Your vehicle model is unknown to me as we don't have them in Europe, but it will either have a traditional single ignition coil or will have individual coil packs which are mounted directly to the spark plugs. If you have plug wires (HT leads) then you have the traditional setup, if not then you have coil packs.

Probably best to get the vehicle to a diagnostics machine to narrow down the fault.

Try the crankshaft (or camshaft) position sensor. It should come up as a reading on a computer diagnostic

Hi, It's me again, the 97 Crown Vic. I understand exactly what you're saying and will have someone look under my car ASAP. The one thing that I just don't get is.... even when it's not...


Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the engine.as it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.

Car will shut down at random times. There is no pattern to it either. It will shut down at a traffic light, on the highway, or on city streets. I have power everywhere else: lights, radio, and everything...


It could be an electrical problem or a fuel problem somewhere, but I suspect the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) is going bad. When this starts going out, the car will shut off at anytime, but it will sometimes start right back up and sometimes a couple of hours. But I will say, if this is the problem it will leave you stranded. Good Luck.

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.
