Look on the distributor. There is a module on it that, when too hot, will cause miss/stall/no re-start situations.

Why does my 1994 ED ford Falcon run for 20mins or more then just stop i Have put a new fuel pump in and another TFI module what else could it be?


when it stops check to see if there is spark. easy way is to spray starting fluid into intake, engine side of air cleaner if possible. Easy does it,1-2 seconds. try to start, and if of nothing, coil or coil packs is the place to start. They commonly work when cold and quit when the get hot until they quit altogether.

My car still stop all of a sudden without any warning and then it will have a little bit of a hard time starting.


If it starts fine when cold or will restart after it cools down and run until the engine warms up, have your TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) replaced. I have seen quite a few lately that will "warm" up and cause the car/truck to gradually run rougher as the engine compartment heats up and once it sits and cools off will restart and run again. You can go to auto zone, advance auto, etc and have them run a free diagnostic test on your car and tell you for sure if any TPS trouble codes are stored

Cold starts ok warms up shakes and stalls


check engine coolant temperature when it gets warmer, or at operating temperature, and verify that the temperature gauge is showing warmed up to operating temperature. If the coolant temperature sensor tells the computer the engine is cold it will over fuel and miss and the engine will die. When cooled down it will run fine until it warms up. Also could be coil if it starts missing after warmed up.

2004 ford f350diesle hard starting depress throtle nothing there


Dear dsmalley427,
I think it sounds like a fuel injection problem. You get fuel for a while until the injector backs up and then all of a sudden NO FUEL. The engine quits and the pressure drops and flow returns enough for you to restart. If I were you I would get to a good mechanic and check the fuel injectors.
OR--try adding a fuel additive that would clean the injectors.--Signed jwr

98 honda shutts off and will not start until cooled off


you say the engine shuts down when it gets hot if it runs rough before doing so it could be the coolant temperature sensor allowing the engine to  overfuel  if the engine cuts out in a couple of seconds but sounds smooth it could be the fuel pump , if it cuts out instantly its electrical.

98 Escort Hard starting when hot


sounds like a dodgy mis reading of a sensor caused by electrical resistance which is turning choke on and flooding engine.know the fault but without car in front of me its difficult to diagnose,could be auto choke sensor which is on right hand side of cylinder head ,but not sure.best is probally dealer have you tried spark plug gaps ??25th although this would cause problems with cold starting not hot starting but its worth a look
