I can drive it around for a while but if its hot out it will start to sputter and die if I can get it started again right away it sputters and when I give it gas it bogs out and dies I have to let it sit for about 20 min. And then it starts and runs normal. I know the temp. Sensor works and my temp gauge does not go past half way when this happens, and as a side note I seem to smell gas when this happens and there seems to be an amazing amount of heat coming from under the car.

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable mil codes? You may be able to check for codes by cycling the ignition switch. You turn the key just till the dash lites come on, no further, cycle the key. On--off, on--off, on, then the mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Let us know what you find?

Check your fuel pressure.

Another thought might be check your coolant temp sensor.
