CAR WONT START AFTER WARM UP

1993 Isuzu Amigo

Engine Performance problem
1993 Isuzu Amigo 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 188k miles

I drove my car around and got it warmed up and came home and then tryed to start it agian but it would want to start then just sputter and die.I got it started again after it cooled and drove it around and as I was pulling in to the drive way and all the indicator lights on the dash came on. I checked fuel and spark both are there. It starts fine after it cools down but once it gets to operating temp it acts like it wants to start and then sputters and dies. Please some one help.

Next time it dies out don't wait for nothing do below immediately to determine if its fuel or spark related problem.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it
