I have a 1999 1.6 Suzuki esteem that cuts out especially when the car gets to hot.

G16 engines, know them like back of hand sold 3.
restored 2, total overhauled 1 engine my hands.
1996+ are all G16b (the B means 16valve heads)
all are MPI injected x4.
all are MAF based EFI. all are. and can fail for this.

to (too) hot, what does that mean? we use a thermal gun to see too hot the 17year old dash gauge is a toy. and OLD.
or means when engine reaches normal 180F temperatures, it ......
cuts out
elaborate that, please.
parked , cold engine, hot engine, (not overheated)
driving , at all speeds all gears ,hills and flat.
cuts out means nothing much.
cuts out can be a minor hesitations to a full on bog,
does car have wide open throttle power,?
cuts out can mean total 12vdc power failure, with all lamps in car showing that or groups, going dead or dim.
if yes, the EFI will lose DC power too. and cut out.

is the CEL lamp glowing running,?
Check engine lamp. in cluster.
its not a panacea that light but can glow.
the panacea if possible is scanning the PCM using any OBD2 scan tool made. see if there are DTC errors.
many do not set the CEL glowing, CEL is mostly for SMOG tests
in USA> (we invented it here)

minor hesitations,
  1. old or bad fuel
  2. MAF dirty clean it with maf cleaner (CRC) 6" afar. no close.
  3. o2 dead, unplug it see if symtoms go away. front 02.
  4. air leaks anywhere on the main air induction pipe MAF to TB will cause lean hesitations, (makes MAF lie)
  5. low fuel pressure. (a tool finds this, ask)
  6. dead maf, or ECU in limphome mode, scan it.

Aeon Mini Kolt 50cc - cuts out when engine gets hot. What is wrong?

Check the compression on your engine take that off clean the valves is not much to an engine like that the engines cut down when it gets hot so it doesn't seize up make sure he got oil added to could be the O-rings but the compression tests would tell you that is not the race I checked the valves

I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 when it gets hot it cuts off and back fires

Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.

Car wont start when hot

Mr. Nicolas I have read your problem and saw that you have problem on hot start and cuts out. I will give you two advices. 1. Have you ever cleaned the throttle body on the engine? If not You must do it as that it is the reason of cutting out. 2. Check having help when the car starts if you have strong spark or fuel is not cutting off. Last thing I personally have the filing either you have tight valves even are hydraulic.
