1996 Dodge Stratus Question: 1996 Dodge Stratus 2.5L shuts down when it gets hot. Starts again when it cools off.

 

Question

Visitor, Chicago, IL, June 09, 2011, 11:49

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?

    Likely has ignition module heating up and stopping spark till cools.

    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.
