ok...a basic knowledge of the Electronic Engine controls is helpfull, this may be a prblem common on these and has a Technical Bulletin available at the dealer... MOST LIKELY a coil/ignition module or pick-up sensor getting hot and malfunctioning... Also, a bad fuel pump that heats up with time...also...ALOT OF OTHER MORE RARE ITEMS.. so start with the cheapest...A BOOK on how to check these items, and a parts store that offers a FREE code scanner, that will STORE any codes that may help the dignosis... Good LUCK also everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the local library should have a SHOP manual available in the reference section--make copies of the right info and read'll be a pro in no time ...good luck:)
