My 1996 Dodge Stratus with a 2.5L V-6 runs fine and then sometimes when it is hot it will just shut off with a no spark condition. Let it cool off and it runs fine. Just did it to me yesterday on a hot day with the AC going. Very annoying. Anyone else seen this problem?

Experience. Hard to diagnose unless it actually failing when testing.

Just wanted to give an update. I drove the car the last couple of days which were much cooler and it ran fine. Put about 180 miles on it.
