i had this problem on a older Ford it was the module in the bottom of the distributor and the same problem in a newer car and it was the module under the coil packs The last answer is correct. Although it could also be the coil pack. If the resistance is off a little bit, it will get worse as the vehicle heats up. It will then kick the auto shut down relay and your done till it resets. Check the module and the coil pack. Depending on the kind of vehicle you have it could be either or both if it's a GM car from the 1980s or 1990s the fuel filter can get clogged to the point where the engine will stall after it's warmed up even tho the fuel pump etc etc are all okay. it does this because the filter is is mounted low and it's filling up due to gravity when the car is off. this often happens on Firebirds/Camaros and can be quite a problem. try changing the fuel filter. ps The diagnostic computer will often fail to see the problem

What would cause my 1998 buick park avenue to start then shuts off after 15 minutes and wont start again?

My 92 PA had the same problem. After it cooled down it would start again. The crank and the cam sensors were found to be bad. These were replaced and I have had no problem since.


Why when I replaced the starter in my '91 Toyota Camry it sometimes would start sometimes it wouldn't and when it wouldn't you had to wait a few hours before it would start again?

battery needs replacing, make sure you replace it with a battery of correct cranking amps


What are the signs of the cam shaft sensor going out?

When mine would go, the engine would all of sudden stop running. Like if you were trying to compression start a standard engine. Only it happen to me when I was doing 80 kph. The it would start again. For some people, once it occurred the engine will never start. Ford did eventually put out a recall on them but that was a long time ago. The I went to have things repaired had told me that there is no real indication when they will fail. In fact, they had installed a new sensor into a truck and the next day the sensor failed. So until it fails just keep driving it.


Why would a car turn over and not start but slowly lose power as if your battery was dead?

The more you turn your car over, the dead-er you battery gets. If your car doesn't start you should try to figure out why, fix it, then attempt to start it again. Continuing to attempt to start it will only kill the battery, thus making it pointless and giving you two problems.

Grand Prix ignition shuts down after starting and running a short period will start back up and run fine until you shut it off and start it again why?

Ran into this same problem on my 1991 Grand Prix. Could drive it for awhile till it got up to normal operating temp. After that it would die again and would not start until cooled off. Turns out it was ignition control module. This part can be taken off and taken to an auto parts store to be tested. Once replaced, no more problems.

If you were on the pill for 3 years went off of it for 3 weeks and now want to go back on it is it okay to start it again after not taking it for a month?

Absolutely. You can start taking it whenever. It is recommended that you start taking the pill when you start your period. So I would suggest you wait until you get your period then start again.

Why would a car start and run then out of no where stop running and wont start but after awhile start like nothing is wrong?

Could be that the coil (or coil packs) is breaking down and fails when it gets hot and then works again when it has cooled slightly after a few minutes. A good garage would check this easily and quickly especially a main dealer for the car.


Why would my gauges go crazy and your 2001 ford windstar not start?

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.
