I have a 1988 toyota pick up 4x4. It will drive for about an hour and then it shuts off automatically by it self. It turns off like you turn the key off. If you let it sit for an hour it will start. Any ideas at all?

I have had this happen to me before and it ended up being the ECU. It would get hot and the glue inside had a crack. The crack would expand with the heat and cause the wires inside to come apart. when it cooled back down they would come back together. Easy fix.
