Engine stalls after about 30 minutes of running. Seems like when engine and componets are warmed up that is when it stalls. It will not restart for about 45 to 60 minutes later
Do you
have the same problem?

When it won't start, have you checked to see if the engine is getting spark and fuel?

Can you hear the fuel pump running for a second or so when you first turn the key?

Yes I can hear the fuel pump and know there is no spark when this happens. I actually removed the coil pack to cool it down just in case it might be it but as far as it getting hot and not working, this is not it. If it has no spark should I still check for fuel

No, if there is no spark, that is why it won't start. Chances are it is a bad crank sensor, but has the check engine light come on? Also, are you sure the fuel pump is turning on? The EEC relay will sometimes shut everything down, but if you hear the fuel pump, that isn't the problem.

Let me know.

The only time the check engine light comes on is when the engine stalls as all the other lights as well. When I turn the key I can hear a consistant sound that sounds like a pump

They cool off and will work again. However, the fuel pump shouldn't be running consistantly. When you first turn the key, you should hear it for about a second or two.

It is near the front harmonic balancer on the end of the crank shaft.

Ok when the engine stalled I took normal water and cooled the crankshaft sensor for 5 minutes. I did this six times to make sure it did it every time the same. All 6 times the engine restarted after 5 minutes. Since the water was sprayed there and some may have hit other area would there be anything else that you can think of when I cooled that area down that would have the same affect
