1999 ford taurus stops running at over 85 -90 degrees. will crank, but not start

(1999 Ford Taurus)
in Salt Lake City, UT on February 12, 2018
Running along my ford taurus will suddenly stop running, when temperature gets over about 85 degrees. it will crank over but not start until it cools down or something. suddenly, after about 30 min. it will start like nothing was ever wrong. Runs good when cool out. I have replaced the ignition module twice, useing a ford product the last time.

Are you getting a check engine light? Have you replaced your crank sensor yet?

No eng. light and I have not replaced the crank sensor (didn't know there is one) The outside temperature seems to make all the difference, but the engine is probably running hotter because of it.

If its say 60 degrees out or anything cooler than 85, can you drive around all day with no issue? Or is it more related to engine temperature?

Outside temp. but the engine is probably running some what hotter because of the outside temp.
