Your ignition coil are going bad, they need to be replaced. once the car gets hot the circuit shut down the car when hot. once they cool your riding again until they get hot. thats your problem. Good Luck

    I have this same problem. Replace the coil with no difference. Replaced engine coolant heat sensor, crankshaft position sensor and clean MAF sensor. Still no difference. Any ideas on next step?

Hi Bennie, When did you last replace the fuel filter? I believe a service may be the answer to your problem. If you have carried out a service recently, try replacing the fuel filter for a better quality product. Regards John

My car starts up then runs for ten mins then dies. it will start up after that but wont stay running. then i come back an hour later then she starts right up and drives for ten mins then back to the same...


sounds like a bad cam sensor. have scanned if light on dash is on. if no scanner any auto parts store will scan for free. a bad or failing crank sensor will make vehicle stall out after a few seconds or minutes. if it is bad enough it will not start. because it controls timing.

Coolant temp sensor issue


very possible as the coolant temp sensor reports the engine temperature to the ECM so that the correct air/fuel mixture can be delivered
it it is faulty the ECM will not know if the engine is subzero temp or overheating so reports from the ambient temp and baro sensor will cause a lock up situation in the program of the ECM
now that you have run the car for a few miles , have the fault codes read again
