This is a difficult one to answer without more info.
however, if you have a check engine light , have codes read first by AutoZone, etc..
proceed from there..
it could be anything from a bad ignition switch, dirty key, to a sensor to the control module..
it will possibly need to be checked out by a professional no doubt..

No power to fuel pump intermittently when hot (summer). After waiting approximately 15 minutes, fuel pump will hum & engine will start when ignition is turned on.


Check the wiring between the fuel pump and the wiring harness, this sounds like a short or wire melting to something hot.

Usually with heat issues, electrical components are affected. It may be fuel pump relay, found in the relay box under the hood. CHeck also if you have spark when this happens during start. If there is no spark your ignition system may be faulty. Inspect first the hi tension wire for loose connections. A bad distributor means no or intermittent signal will be detected by the computer from it and in turn it will not activate the fuel pump. It could be either one of the said issues or both may be the cause.

Wont start after it warms up


Your fuel pump relay on top of the radiator might be defective. This also runs the cooling fans.
