I have replaced the crank sensor, catalytic converter, both O2 sensors, thermostat, and fuel filter and pump are only 3 months old. When engine is cold its starts. but when it gets near operating temp she sputters then dies and wont start for another 3-4 hours if i am lucky. its has the 5.2L 318 engine with a standard trans. I NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!

    Try testing to see how functional your coolant temp sensor is, also the air intake sensor, worth a try, and would be a cheap fix., to me sounds like an environmental reaction, "temperature". Let me know how you make out!

    The first step is to identify what is missing when the engine stalls. Spark? Fuel? Both? Is there sufficient fuel pressure?
