Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my kia rio starts fine from a cold start however when the engine reaches running temp and I drive about five to six miles the engine shuts down. Now if I take the spark plugs out and clean them and replace them ( these are new plugs mind you) the engine starts and I drive five or six miles and the same thing happens
