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

    I have this same problem. Replace the coil with no difference. Replaced engine coolant heat sensor, crankshaft position sensor and clean MAF sensor. Still no difference. Any ideas on next step?

Hi Bennie, When did you last replace the fuel filter? I believe a service may be the answer to your problem. If you have carried out a service recently, try replacing the fuel filter for a better quality product. Regards John

Car will start right up when cold go down road dies starts back up once hot shut off starts back up let it set ten min. wont start has spark has fuel pressure put new fuel pump in old pump did same thing...


Could be a relay or other electrical issue.
You say it has fuel pressure and spark, if that were true it should run.
So it either does not have enough spark to fire the plugs under compression, or not enough fuel pressure going thru the injectors, or not at the right time.
You might want to check for trouble codes in the computer.
There has to be something missing from the equation when it won't start. You may have to check all of the plugs for fire and try some carb cleaner sprayed into the intake to boost fuel supply to find the issue.

My 2000 grandprix gtp will start for a min then shut right off? before this stared happening it ran great any ideas? I have changed the fuel pump and fuel filter.


could be your anti theft system needs to be reset. turn your key to the on position for ten min, turn it off and then back to the on position for ten more min it should reset your key. anti theft cuts off your fuel supply so it can't be stolen

Car starts but turns off after a 10 min or so.


This definitely sounds like a fuel pump/filter issue. Good news if it's the filter, it's only about 10 dollars to buy a new one and about 5 minutes labor, including jacking up your car.

Fuel pumps cant be a pain in the arse at times, others are fairly easy. Best way to determine if it's the fuel pump, run over to Canadian tire and pick up an ohms meter. Test the fuel pump that way.
