Hi Jesse:
If the car is running fine and giving you trouble when it's warm, I question a couple things. First, I would recomend that you check the EGR to make sure it is working properly and it's not plugged with carbon. If it's fine, look for a vacuum leak or an intake problem.

Let me know if this helps, or if you have any other questions.

Joe

Well I found out it dont have a EGR? Weird, I let it warm up with out giving it any gas and same thing as soon as it heats up starts to backfire and miss and if you give it the gas it sounds like the 4 of july coming out of my exhaust haha. The hotter it gets the wers it gets to the point it stalls and barely starts, I notice that it starts to drag cylinders and runs on maybe 2 or 3 and when it stalls it misses and starts to runs back wards for a few secs. Im thinking a timing problem? But ones it cools down for a few it starts right up and runs like theres nothing wrong ones it heats up agen same thing? It has a cam sensor and a crank sensor, thinking when they start to heat up they start to malfunction? What do you think? Thanks for your help I need it. Jesse
