After driving for a while and shutting off the engine I have to wait for a while (about 15 Mins) before it will restart. Sometimes the engine will also stall after driving for a while and stopped at a light and also will not restart until about 15 mins.. I recently have a tire blowout on the left rear by the gas tank and i'm wondering if this might have affected the fuel cutoff switch. I've changed the IAC valve based on the dealer diagnostic but the problem still exist.
Do you

Cut out when idling or when driving the speedlimit?

Why did the iac get replaced due to dealership diagnostic, what was wrong to have it replaced? Did they have codes or something, if so post them back.

Did problem occur before the tire blew out? Or right after it was replaced, was it towed in or did you throw on a a spare and go?

It only cut out when idling and I took it to the dealer and they told me that the IAC valve was bad. It is not putting out any error code.
The problem occured a couple of weeks after the tire blew. I put on the spare and was able to continue on.

That could cause it to stall out when idling but isnt going to keep it from starting for 15 minutes.

You going to have to check for spark and fuel pressure when it will not start.

Will it start if you give it gas when cranking?

Disconnect iac moduel when vehicle wont start, it start now?
