After my truck gets up to normal running temp my motor will quit. I've had it happen with the truck parked and while driving down the road. It will not start again till the truck cools down. I've replaced the ignition coil.

    First thing someone that does auto repair thinks of here is a failing crank sensor,, however a lot more possibilities exist! Your best bet is let a mechanic keep the truck, let it run and check it out when it stalls and will not restart! Light on?? Ever see a funny message in odometer like "no bus"..?
