The car starts up. After 10-15 minutes of running ithe engine stops running. It seems to me that some sensor or something gets hot and the engine gives out. I have had a distributor, water pump, timing chain recently installed. Can you help me. Thanks.

Hi larry1951,

Thank you for the donation.

After the engine stalls, were you able to restart?

Does opening the throttle keep the engine running?

Is the MIL showing?

The car does restart after it stalls.

Nothing seems to keep the engine running for long after it stalls.

Get a scan done to check for trouble codes.

After it stopped running, were you able to restart?
Was it easy?
Did you test what was missing then?
