I have 94 s 10..4.3 v6. it does the same thing have replaced fuel pump and filter,ignition module,cap rotor plugs wires,coil,ground strap...driving down the road jus dies like the key got shut off....for a while when troubleshooting through the parts you could get it to restart.....now when it dies it cranks really hard when trying to restart..ive checked the timeing its fine....if i wait a few min it will usually start...sometimes it will show a check engine light sometimes not......never know when it will happen sometimes jus down the the road from the house sometimes 100miles down the road......sometimes three times in a mile sometimes not for weeks at a time..Wtf...Im ready to shoot it like a lame horse....its a shame too its a sharp lil truck thats a two owner and never spent a night outside in its life...i knew the original owner ...i bought it with 90,000 on it it only has 148,000 now and still looks like new...
check asd relay in pdc box on l/f in engine compartment, some relays look o.k., some times bad connection or burnt wire. try new one or take out and reinstall. on the lable cover it is listed as auto shut off relay. the 4th. one down in the middle.
rule of thumb for most engines 10/12 th inlet 15/17 th exhaust ,like 25th for the plugs ,4th per inch of the diameter of the piston for piston ring gap ,water cooled 20th for air cooled engines ,1342 firing order or 153624 ,cannot remember the 8 cylinder firing order
Ignition Control Module is bad. When the dielectric grease used to mount them gets hard,they overheat and cause you to shut down. Really easy to install(about 10 mins.). I had this happen on two Fords. If you let the engine sit and cool down,they will fire up and run till that part gets hot,then itll die on ya. Auto zone sells this part for around 35 bucks.
hi, this is a common problem and only points at one thing being at fault, the problem you are having is going to be with the oxygen sensor(or lambda sensor for its true name) Now the reason it points to this is that when the car is cold the oxygen sensor isnt working as it only starts working when it reaches a certain temperature and this is when your getting the problem then whilst the car is still hot it just wont start but as soon as it cools down you will find it starts as normal.
Replacing this part will solve your problem.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
