Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has the 302 V8 and it runs good until it get hot and you stop at a store and try to
start it and it just turn over, just fine but won't start until you let it cool down. What
do you think it could be?  Gave it a tune up and change the fuel filter and things like
that.

Ignition module defective. Fuel pump relay melting and distorting connector. Next time it stops, have someone cycle key while listening with fuel cap off. check for spark while someone turns key. Rarely is it the ECM but, it's possible.
