A 'hot' fault is usually associated with an electrical failure of the crank and or the cam sensor. The crank sensor sits near the starter motor on the edge of the flywheel housing. The cam sensor is near the end of the cam shaft on the front (end nearest cooling fan) of the engine. Fundamentally when either the crank or cam sensors fail the engine loses track of when to spark and when to inject fuel respectively. I would change the cam sensor first as a) it the easiest and b) is most often related to hot start failure. his will cost about $30 and take about 20 minutes. If this does not solve the problem move on to the crank sensor. This is about the same sort of cost but will entail a bit more getting at and so budget about 90 minutes. When working on either sensor make sure the engine is cool, getting scalded is no fun.

1991 Dodge Shadow. When its warmed up and im driving it around, the engine just shuts off. I pull over, try to start it again and it wont turn over. So i wait 5 minutes and it'll start but 5 minutes later...


this is a typical Coolant Temp Sensor issue. the part is about $20 and can be done in a few minutes. I can further help if i knew which engine was in the car.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9L, Automatic Transmission, 171,000 miles. Vehicle will stop running, just shut off, after about 10 minutes of driving. Then after 5 minutes of waiting it will start again...


the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.

Sounds like a coil problem, I don't know how the ignition systems work in the hemi's but your coil could be overheating.
