Sounds like the ignition control module is heating up and needs to be replaced. Check the spark when it doesn't start, replace it


i just put on a new ignition control module that did not solve the problem i can start it let it run or drive it then if i shut it off won't start till the engine is cold i put new plugs and wires i'm toledo-lee confused i don't know what it could be iv worked on this car since i first bought it in 94 at 16 this one is stumping me


Time to take the old volt meter out and start checking for signals. Verify there's no spark, if no soark, check to see if ur getting 12 volts to the module to make sure it's a spark problem
