Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My kia rio 2005 cuts out at 88 degress?  It starts ok, runs ok, but as soon as it reaches 88 degress it suddenly dies?  It wont start again until it has cooled down, and then when it hits 88 degrees it dies again?  Does anyone know hat is wrong?

try the crank angle sensor if its a coil break down the most of the time ypu will have a miss fire concern
