1998 ford taurus shuts off while driving in hot weather

Asked by Apr 25, 2011 at 10:03 PM about the 1998 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

At first the car wouldn't restart for about 30 mins after driving in hot weather. Changed out plugs, wires, MAF, cam shaft position sensor, coolant sensor.  Now car is shutting off while driving in hot weather and will take about an hour or more until it will restart.  Was told by the shop that it needed a feul injector service.  Any ideas.

Ignition modgle sounds bad,the hoter temps is overheating it.doubt it is fuel related,most think when it gets hot weather,they think of vapor lock which was common on pre fuel injection cars,this is a thing of the past but some still think it still happends.
