1989 Mercury Sable wagon mileage: 109,000. I've had this car for two years, and during cold weather it runs great, but if it gets 70 degrees or higher outside, after I drive the car about ten miles or so and it will shut down. It acts like it's not getting any gas. The fuel filter has been changed and it has new plugs. After the car sets for thirty to forty five minutes. It will start again and will run until it gets hot and shuts back down. My temperature gauge shows normal when this happens. So what could my problem be?

Check the fuel pump, it is probably failing.
