Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car turns over fine when first starting it, then after running about 10-15 mins it dies. Once the car dies I have to wait about 20 mins and then it will start up again. Recently had the starter changed and have changed the crankshaft sensor.

Is it an automatic? When it dies, can you restart the car in park and or get it into neutral and it stays running?

Check your electronic spark control your coil pack towers for dirt & rust etc. & check your spark plugs, whens the last time it was tuned up?
