My 1994 Dodge Dakota with V8 engine does not start when it heats up. Appears all electrical power gone, no spark or fuel. Starter turns motor over but will not fire up. After it sits for afew hour, it will start up normally.
Vapor lock, comes to mind, where is so hot the gasoline begins to boil, and your throttle and injectors do not know what to do with the fumes~
insulate or shield your fuel lines to stop the gas from boiling would be the course of action~
Check your codes first, and come back here with the results. Something could be triggering the auto shut down.
like a crank sensor!
Crank sensor or cam sensor.
