So the car runs normally, then just shuts down, you wait for the engine to cool down and it just starts again as nothing happened.
Have you checked the codes both with the engine hot but running and with the engine stopped? If not then this is the first thing you should do.
To me all this looks like the engine temp sensor is dead: when cold the mixture must be richer than normal for the engine to work normally.; as the engine heats up the ECM still thinks the engine stays cool so the mixture becomes richer and richer, up to the point the data from the O2 sensor  can't force the ECM to compensate no more so the engine simply stops.
Replace the sensor.

This is generally caused by a problem with idle/choke/mixture control. On a fuel injected engine, the ECM/ECU may need to be replaced/reprogrammed.

Other possible causes could include:
-fouling spark plugs (replace them or at least clean them).
-fuel filter problem (replace it).
check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.Get the fuel pressure checked. If its less then its quite possible that fuel pump needs to be replaced and fuel filter is got clogged.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXI Coupe 3.0 mitsu

A great tool to have that can save you some money to read computer error codes and clear them after work has been done can be had for under $100 from Actron. This is what I have been using and its a life saver but it's also good to have the vehicles repair manual as well.

The computer on this car is OBDII like many other vehicles out there these days so you'll need a tool that can plug in and read the outlet located above the shin of your right leg under the dashboard or steering wheel. Here is a link to a bunch of their products on amazon Actron and other OBDII Computer diagnostic code reader tools.

1996 ford contour when drivig for a while the car shuts down the engine shutrs down


Hi!!

This type of car tends to do that when the fuel pump is quitting. When the pump cools down it starts and runs fine again for about 20 min. (depending on the weather), then quits again.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!!

Jeep starts but wont stay running. changed fuel filter O2 sensor and cleaned injectors. When running it runs great. after it warms up if you can get it to run that long it runs great.


Possible electrical problem. If the module in the distibutor gets hot it will shut the vehicle down, let it cool down for about 10 min. and it starts again ?

Usually the ignition module heats up to a point and faults out, after it cools back down the component will work again until it heats back up to a certain temp.

Starving for gas when the weather is hot


hmmm sounds like ignition module under distributor rotor button is opening up when it gets hot.after cool down will restart suggest you replace it , it's fairly inexpensive and they are very prone to heat related failure.

Sounds like the cpi injector assembly. The fuel pressure regulator may be leaking. Or the poppet valves on the injectors may be sticking or shot. I replaced almost every part on my truck and that is what it ended up being the whole time. It's a common problem on these models. Hope this helped
