Ignition modules are known for heat induced failures--replace it using a thin business card for a gap gauge. Turn the flywheel magnets so that they are under the module, allow the pre-mounted module to contact the magnets through the gauge, then tighten the screws. There should be no timing adjustments. Hope this helps!

1200 custom sportster stops running when it get warm

Sounds like it is possibly the cam sensor. It is located under the round cover on the lower right side of the engine. The cover is held on by 2 rivets. If this is indeed the problem, you will have to re-time the bike after replacing the sensor.

My 1999 FXSTC has me puzzled. It will fire up and run until it gets up to normal operating temp then dies and will not start until it cools down.I replaced ignition module, coil, wires and plugs. This is...

regulator/rectifier? Vapor lock? Stator? Wiring.
After it stops, shake all the wires and plugs(one at t aitme) and try again. This will take time but it may be an elusive problem.

When driving engine stops and car doesn't start until it cools down

You may have a failing cam sensor. This part, if it fails, has the symptom that the vehicle won't start until the engine cools down from normal operating temperature.

My Blower dies after about 15 min. Then it will

I think its the ignition module. To test the module put 2 spark testers inline with each other and see if it will jump both.
If you dont have 2 testers then use it till it dies and try to start immediately with a prime. If it wont start then module is suspect.
Most manufacturers have lifetime warranty on thier modules ( I am unsure about MTD) so double check before you just go out and buy one.

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr

Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.

2000 caravan 3.0 stall after 20 min no spark restarts few hours later

This sounds like a bad (probably cracked) ignition coil.

First, the coil gets hot when operating, and this is normal.

If it is cracked, it gets hot to the point where its resistance gets so much higher that it cannot provide enough voltage for spark.

When it cools back down it starts working fine again.
