If you don't have any lights indicating overheating, check your gas cap. It might not be venting and creating a vapor lock. Its commonly over looked. Also in he same type of category the vent tube to the gas tank may be faulty. This would cause no exchange of air to replace the gas taken in by the motor and create a condition similar to vapor lock.
