My car will start run for 10 minutes when it gets warm it shuts off then it won't start for about 2 hours. When it shuts off I have no spark.

Hello,
This could be a problem with either your Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP), or, more likely, your vehicle's Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP). They are both located in your vehicle's distributor housing. So I have also included the instructions for the removal, overhaul, and installation of the distributor. Please go through these guides and get back to us with what you are able to find out.

Thanks,
Alex

I can pick up a new distributor for like $80.00 do you suggest I do that or do you think I got to overhaul my other distributor? What would you do? Thank you so much for responding.

I wrote In about my cars running for 10 minutes and then stalling and I have no spark. You mailed me back that it probably a crankshaft sensor or the camshaft sensor to. Both of them were inside the distributor housing instead of tearing the whole thing apart and replacing both of the sensors do you think it would be all right if I just bought a new distributor? I can get one for $60.00 brand new. There would be new sensors in the distributor correct?

Hello my name is Dave.

It does look like replacing the distributor should resolve your problem as it will replace the cam sensor.

Hello,

Please follow the installation directions that were sent in the first reply to you question. This should ensure that the distributor is aligned properly. Please get back to us with how it turns out.
