After it cools for about an hour, it will run fine again. Replaced ignition module, coil and fuel filter. Could it be the CCRM?

    I'm going through this same sort of issue with my 2002.The most likely culprit is the fuel pump.

    Have you checked for any fault codes? All you mentionedis possible. Could become a costly repair job. I recommend taking it to your local auto repair facility. With the new handsets they can tell exactly which system is at fault. Goodluck

    Well they can't always tell "exactly"-that's the rub,there is always a bit of interpretation and codes that simply say "misfire"etc,that can be misleading..A bad fuel pump may present with a "bad crank sensor code",for example.The sensor was replaced-the problem remained.A fuel pump is about a 700 dollar job.My car has been checked-different ideas from two experienced guys,and I hesitate to keep throwing money at this car.
