What should happen when you turn the key to run is the fuel pump relay should enable to pressurize the fuel system. And then if you do not start the car immediately it will shut off once it has pressuriezed the system. Once you start the engine the pump should kick back in to supply fuel to run the car. If everything has worked so far and once you start the car and it dies right after it starts running check the oil pressure sender. If that sensor does not detect oil pressure it will not allow the fuel pump to keep running and the engine is supposed to die. This is great if you ramp a railroad crossing and take the sump of the oil pan but not any other time. Get that sensor replaced and all should be well

If you suspect that there is no ignition spark, have the ICM tested, it's a little device that's inside the distributor and causes the coil to send a spark to the plugs. However!!! Don't replace parts without having them tested first!

What probly is going on is that your ignition module is failing. You can take this part off and have it tested, but the test will more than likely be false because, like you said, it only fails when warm. Start with replacing it with a junkyard part. This way, if it doesnt solve the problem, your not out the 100 bucks that the parts stores want for it.

Does it it start sometime and not others? Does it click when you turn the ignition to start but doesnt start? Then its probably bad. Make sure your battery is fully charged first.

Why does my car start after jump starting but then dies?

Probably the alternator is bad. Once the jumper cables are removed, there is no source for ignition if the alternator is bad. Have it tested and replaced if necessary.
