Hi,
After reading this a few times and thinking about it you are saying that the engine will not even turn over when you try to start it hot... absolutely nothing happens...
If this is the case then here are the possibilities...
The switch will not make contact when hot....check for power to the starter soleniod...
The starter solenoid does not engage or "make" when hot....replace the soleniod....
if power is going from the soleniod to the starter then the starter will not engage when hot... replace the starter...

this sounds like a capasitor/resistor that is getting hot under load once it is switched off and cools down it works until it gets hot again similar to that of a cars ignition coil which will get hot and cut the vehicle out but once it cools it will start again.

I have of 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 that won't start once it gets hot


Someone will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel pressure issue to proceed.
Could be a long list of things including relays and electrical components.

I have a 2001 yard machine riding mower that cuts off when it gets warm and has no electric


Symptoms would lead me to the coil. They get hot, and die. If it doesn't re-start hot but will after cooling down then its a 99% coil issue

Also after it shuts down and u turn the key to try to start it back up is the starter engaging and trying to spin the motor or are you getting nothing.
If the starter isn't doing anything it could be the starter or relay between ignition switch and starter.
If the starter is engaging and the motor is trying to turn over it could a weak starter or it could be a build up of compression not letting the starter spin it over that a valve adjustment would help. The temp change from cold to hot is sometimes enough make the valves expand and not open enough to release compression for start up.

Car starts fine maybe a couple of cranks but nothing serious, runs really good after starting, can drive it all day.But when you shut it off, it dosnt want to start,untill 5 or ten minutes go by than it...


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the ignition coil. If the ignition coil gets hot the car may stall or may not start right away till it cools down. The ignition coil is surely faulty and replacement is surely necessary.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

After it starts it will run fine for a bit then stops suddenly. Does not run down as it would with a fuel problem. Only happens when it is hot. Then it is impossible to start.


The most likely cause is the ignition module failing once it gets hot. While not common it is not unheard of either. I suggest you replace the spark plug first and try it (<$5). If no better try this cold just to get a feel for it, then as soon as it cuts out try it again.

You may need to use a jumper wire between the threaded part of the plug and the cooling fins. You do not have to bend up the electrode.

Ignition module gap
Place a business or index card between the fly wheel and coil, rotate until the magnetic attraction pulls everything tight together. Tighten the coil screws, rotate the flywheel until the attraction eases and remove the card. Ensure nothing contacts when the flywheel is rotated.


If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
