This is a great question: This problem seems to occur across the board from Beetles, Hondas to Fords and BMWs. Seems to be characterictic of 1980s and later. Does anyone know if there is heat sensor involved which might shut off the fuel injection to the plugs? Maybe a computer problem?

I had the same problem, also it would run but when it was hot, it would not start until the engine cooled down. my alternator was putting out 12.2 with no load, drew down to 11.9 with load, not dead but poor output. Changed the alternator and the problem went away.

Why does a gass expand when heated and contract when cooled?

When a gas is heated up, the particles within the gas start to move faster, going farther apart (expansion). When a gas is cooled, the particles slow down and it starts to condense (contract), and if cooled enough, into a liquid.

What will the 1991 Chevrolet lumina do if it has a bad control module?

Could do any number of things. Not start at all. Start and run fine and take random spells of misfiring. Could start and run fine while it's cold then start running worse as it warms up. You can pull the ICM and take it down to AutoZone where they can test if for free. Have them test it several times until it gets warmed up. A lot of times these won't show being bad until they get hot.

Why does your 1986 rx7 idle up and down when you first start it?

The car is designed this way for cold starts. It should idle up to 3000 rpm then makes it's way down to around 1500 and finally down to 750 as it warms up. DO NOT drive when it is cold or If you have to do not take it over 3 grand until warmed up or you risk blowing coolant seals.
