    Same problem. Replacing the cam sensor and relay switch fixed it for me.

    I am having the same problem. Car was purchased 2nd hand and every conceivable repair has been made to it. I have spent approx. $2,000 in repairs but car still runs for about 20 - 25 minutes, cuts out and must cool down for 15 minutes or so before it will crank again. I noted the 3 answers and will follow up. Any other ideas about what could possibly be wrong. We have not replaced about all we can.
