    Hi, Nissan is well known for having crankshaft position sensor problems.. Is the check engine light on? if so what is the code or codes set? Since it is heat related I would lean more toward an electrical event like a sensor. Let me know.

My guess would be your crankshaft position sensor could be going out. I am currently replacing mine for somewhat of the same problem. They get warm and then go off track causing it to stop reading the position of the crankshaft and then it goes into fail safe mode causing the truck to not run.

If you put gas through and got nothing, it is probably something else. Have you checked your fuses? You can get a code tester at Autozone or parts store. A cheap one cost 40-50. It would save you a lot of money. Buy a Haynes Book, shows everything you need to do it yourself and shows you the code matches. Have you tried anything yet?

I would suggest looking at the little things. Check your fuel filter, and clean your spark plugs. No Guarantee that this will work, but this is much cheaper than replacing something expensive that you don't need.

88 jeep cherokee turns over but won't start... as if its out of gas... its not!

Try spraying a little ether in the throttle body/carb and if it starts and runs for a little bit then dies then you have a fuel problem. Probably a pump or fitler. If you replace the pump also replace the filter. Note: if you are trying to start it with the ether in it and its not starting and you see a little fire keep turning it over to **** the fire into the engine, etherwise you will burn up your glaskets.

97 chevy 2500 4x4 will run good for a little wile and then shuts

You have already over replaced. Wet plugs are either too cold, too late fire or bad cylinder compression. Hook a timing light to the plug in question. If the light won't fire, the plug is too cold. Check number one at TDC to see if firing at correct time. If this is helpful, please post as such or go live and I can tell you more, faster
