Mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the familiar vapor lock, this is where the fuel lines are too clost to the exhaust manifolds, thus causeing the fuel to vaporize before it reaches the cylinders, you may have lost the cover for the exhaust manifold if your car has one to prevent this vapor lock. Have your local shop check out your car.

1987 Ford f150 shuts off and wont start until engine is cooled off


To clarify, you said it runs for 20 min then quits, and it won't start again until it cools off. Have you checked for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure right after it quits running ?
These models have an ignition module attached to the side of the distributor that has a history of failing when hot. The coil and the pickup inside the distributor can fail too. Could also be a relay.

1986 Toyota 4wd pickup: problem starting


in my experience alot of times what happens when ignition systems get hot from running for a period of time the ignition coil breaks down and weakens when old and worn out then let it cool down for awhile then starts right back up. so look into checking into the coil break down for loss of spark

1999 SATURN SL RECENTLY STARTED STALLING INTERMITTENTLY. IT STALLS AFTER DRIVING SHORT DISTANCES. AT FIRST IT WAS ONCE DURING A REGULAR DRIVING DAY. STALLS ON REGULAR ROADS AND THRUWAY DRIVING. IF YOU...


did your mechaniic check the fuel injectors, it very possibly could be 1 of them acting up, also have your mechanic to give your vehicle a fuel pressure test, this will tell if the pressure is within the specs for the year and engine size that you have. also have him to check the coil, or coils, 1 of them could be heating up, and breaking down, and after cooled for a while, they have been known to work again, untill they heat up again. also have him to check the fuel pump relay to see if it is getting bad, he might have to tempoarily replace it with another one just to see if it is acting up.

Its cuts off completly after runnninng 20 min,but will crank back up only to cut off again and again and over until car has cooled down.


Check behind the distributor cap and see if the cam cover seal is leaking. When that seal leaks the car will drive fine til engine heats up the oil and it starts fouling out the distributor cap and rotor. When it cools down the oil hardens again and car run fine. I would start by looking there.
