It sounds like a coil problem or its vapor locking when it quits again pour cold water on the fuel line and the fuel pump to cool both if your car starts you have found the problem if it won't start try replacing the coil
there is a drain for the condensation. it outside on the firewall on the pass side, probably pretty low. its got a little rubber hose looking thing stickin out shove some wire up there and clean it out. it get plugged up and it fills the hvac box up with water and the cox is not water tite
Start by flushing your coolant system, then refill with a quality coolant.
Run up to temperature and check again for level (when cool again)
Check that the radiator is getting really hot quite suddenly when running from cold, as this is the best way of checking thermostat operation.
When over a set temperature (check your manual) the fan should come on.
If it never does - troubleshoot the fan (temperature switch or sensor first, then fan on direct feed to see if it powers up ok)
I have a feeling its your water pump not pumping coolant. Water pump is run by the crankshaft. So in essence, the water pump pumps coolant faster while the engine or crankshaft is running which is why the temp would go up while still. It may not be cranking now maybe because the water pump pulley may be bad not allowing the belt to move. So have your cooling system checked.
CHECK COOLANT LEVEL.CHECK THERMOSTAT.IF TOP RADIATOR HOSE DONT GET HOT IN 10 MINUTES AFTER FIRST STARTING CAR IN MORNING .AND JUST THE BOTTOM HOSE.THERMOSTAT STICKING CLOSE.IF THERMOSTAT FINE.PROBLEM COULD BE CLOGGED RADIATOR OR ENGINE BLOCK CLOGGED OR FAULTY WATER PUMP.
Possibly a crank sensor on or around the harmonic balancer, acts as a magnet like on an old buick. When you get the truck to fire up run it until she gets hot shut it and try to restart if no start continues try spraying starter fluid on the crank sensor itself. What happens is the sensor overheats and wont register that your cranking the engine. Spraying the starting fluid on the sensor will cool it dramaticlly enough for you to restart.
