1999 Ford Escort Question: Car stalling



kross2005, 2.0L 4 Cylinder SOHC, Douglass, KS, June 18, 2010, 18:35

My car has been having a problem, when its warm outside normally above 90 degrees it will stall out and will not restart untill it sits for a minute or two then after about 5 miles of going at a consistent speed it will stall out again. I have also noticed it will cut out a little when i get on it, i replaced the fuel filter but that did not help anything so my next guess is fuel pump or IAC valve. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    if possible when car dies check for spark, when the ignition coil is going bad they usually start acting up when they are hot, then when they cool a bit start working again, could be the fuel pump gettting tired but you'lll need a fuel pressure guage test that,
