What would the problem be when the car starts when cool but when ran for a few minutes it won't restart? We have replaced the ignition control module, and the crank sensor, cut off exhaust.

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car will start when cool, but when running for a few minutes and turn it off it will not
restart until it's completely cooled off. We have replaced the ignition control module,
crank sensor, and took off exhaust. The car is a 1988 Buick LaSabre. If anyone has a
suggestion please email me at deanna_campos68@yahoo.com

When the car dies spray some starting fluid in the air intake. If it then starts and runs a few seconds it's a fuel problem. If the starting fluid has no effect it's an ignition problem. HTH. -Jim
