There are 2 sensors that fix this problem, about 50.00 per at the part store... Husband fixed problem in about 20 minutes (most of the time was spent looking for the sensor)

After driving the car and turning off, it will not turn back on without resting for 20 or 30 minutes.

Sometimes starts. Sometimes doesn't. Sometimes starts and runs really rough and then cuts off. Heard it's the oil that drips in the distributor and shorts the optical sensor.

Engine crank but wont start
Car ran for a few minutes then died would not re-start, it just turns over. Next morning it started and ran again but only a few feet and died. wont re-start, just turns over. Its getting fuel, I suspect the distributor or a relay (but which one) may be bad.

Distributor leaked oil into the body of the distributor causing engine tobarely run. Replaced with a rebuilt distributor and problem was solved.
Service engine light is on. When I drive for a while and then turn off the car, it will not start back up unless it has been sitting for 20-30 minutes. After sitting it will start and run just fine. I took the vehicle to the dealer and they said that the engine code was a crankshaft sensor, but could not tell me if that is the reason why the car won't start unless it has been sitting for a while.
