The car will turn off when the engine gets warm and won't even try to start until the engine gets completely cold. A least an hour later. I am not getting spark. I have xonfirmed that there is voltage to the ignition coil, replaced the coil, replaced cap and rotor, conformed it is getting gas. I do not know what else could cause this. When the engine gets cold it fires right up

Most likely the cause is a bad crankshaft sensor.

Was it properly set? Are you getting power to the crank sensor? It could be a problem with the computer itself.
