Change out your Engine Coolant Temp sensor. Post back if that doesn't cure the issue.

It did not work. If it set for about 2 hours it will start right up,but after it run for a while it may die and if you shut it off it wont start for about 2 hours,you can hold the peddle down and it will start but it flood and just die.

Have you tried swapping out the distributor? The older distributors have a couple of pickups in the bottom. When they become hot, the vehicle shuts down. See the module?


i will let you know,if it work thank
