Did you replace the Ignition Control Module? It's the candy bar sized box on the side of the distributor. It's know to fail and a common symptom is your car shutting down while hot, but them once it cools down you can start it again.


Yesthat has been changed also

check to make sure that your getting fuel. Also theres an inertia switch in the trunk that cuts off the fuel supply once its tripped.

Sorry not to have seen this one earlier. Sounds like my problem; changed/checked everything. Then after mechanic noted that pulling on the crank position sensor wire at the connector at the top right of the engine it started. Noted that the connector had play in it (bad seal?) and maybe corrosion. I shuffled the two halves back and forth to try to scrape through any corrosion, added di-electric grease, and chicken-banded the two halves of the connecter together tightly. Starts every time now.
