Not starting when warm

Will drive my car for 15 minutes or more, shut the motor off and it will not start. It turns over great but will not fire up. I must leave it for 15 to 20 minutes before it will start again.

Is the check engine light on? do you have the A/C going when it happens? Is the car running hot? Possible places to look would be the intake air temp sensor, or the idle air controller. (if applicable). I have heard that some cars will kill the motor if the fan switch has died.

99' f-150, 5.4 triton V8, 340,000 miles. Runs great unless I drive 15 plus miles and shut off. If I try to start right away, it turns over but won't start. I wait from 10 to 40 minutes until starts.


Could be vapor-lock. When you shut it down fully warm, heat can cause the fuel in the lines to boil, making it hard to start. Low fuel pressure can make the symptoms worse, as full pressure will condense the vapor, and get your fuel flowing.

I would check fuel pressure while running, and again, during the time when it doesn't start.

if light on dash is on, then it sounds like a bad crank sensor. shuts off while driving down road, then will not start for about 15 minutes. heres more causes:: car shuts off when tempurature gets to normal-- low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, failed radiator fan, it takes 10 to 15 minutes for a car to warm up. check or replace coolant temp. sensor if above is ok. have a good day !

Sounds like the coil. A bad coil will lose internal connection when it gets hot.
