sounds like when you drive for a while the car gets to op. temp then shuts down? sounds like the crank position sensor. the sensor will get hot and break connection in side of the sensor when it cools the connection is made then the car will start. If your an do it yourself guy you can check the connection your self you need to remove the sensor.And using a volt/ohm meter set on ohms connect the leads to the sensor wires you should have a reading then heat the sensor with a heat gun hair drier may not get hot enough watching the the ohm meter when the meter goes to zero or open the sensor will not start the car let cool with meter still connected watch if reading comes back if so you need to replace the sensor hope this helps

2001 cadillac eldorado dies shortly after a cold start. Will always restart, happens when parked, and while driving. I am mechanically inclined but could use some expert advice on this one, thank you

best advice is to have the fault codes read first
It is possible that a fault with an ambient temp sensor will show, fault MAF/VAF sensor or BARO sensor
get the codes first then read the workshop manual on how to test and where they can be found
because it starts and then restarts after stopping , the fault is indicated in that area

Dies while driving. No spark could it be crank sensor?

Yes. When it dies and will not start again watch the tachometer and see if it moves as you crank the engine.

1997 Plymouth Voyager 3.3 dies at idle hesitates during acceleration

It should show up with a P code as it misfires. If it doesn't, check the engine temperature sensor and O2 sensor.

99 Oldsmobile dies when slowing down or taking off; no codes show

First clean the mass air flow sensor with a non-chlronated brake cleaner then let it dry for 10 minutes then re-install and reset the computer.If the problem still exist then check the fuel pressure it should be 48-55 psi with the key on an engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump.

Mine has 217,000 miles. Has run great up until some time ago, when it started driving roughly only in wet weather. Now in dry weather, it starts fine, but drives roughly after warmed up (15-20 min) and...

The knock sensor NEVER causes a drivability problem. DO NOT change it. Instead, clean the MAF, Mass Air Flow sesnor that's on the air intake tube near air cleaner. It is coated with varnish. Spray with carb cleaner several times and gently, gently brush the wires. Theya re glass coated. Be careful.

Then disconnect battery for 2 hours and then reconnect and drive for 0 miles for computer to relearn engine contrils.

My car randomly dies while driving or idling and will not restart until it cools all the way down. it then fires right up and drives fine for awhile until it does it again

To determine the fault take it to a mechanic wo has a code reader, they can check and reset the codes telling you the faults, My suspision is a coolant problem and this shutdown is a safety feature to prevent serious damage. I wish you good luck {nice cars}

Replacing plugs and wires is the correct soultion for a p0341 on an S-car. However the trans shifting hard is another common problem that the s-cars have which is your valve body on your transmission and the Input shaft nut will eventually need to be replaced as the problem will get worse. as far as the Ignition module. It is actually called an Ignition Control Module. Maybe they were saying controller and referring to that. I hope this helps.
