1986 Ford F-250 Base 8 Cyl 5.0L


Why does my vehicle not run after it gets to running temp?

It will start easy and fine until it reaches a certian temperature and then it dies. After a little time of cooling down it will restart.

For me to give you real pinpointed targeted help, I need to know whether the spark is present when the vehicle will not start. Pull a wire off a spark plug and hold it a 1/4" away from any metal on the engine and crank the engine over. Look for spark. It is there or it is not. I also need to know if it has battery voltage to the fuel injectors with the key on (just check one) and if it has injector pulse if you know how to check for that. There are a world of causes but if I have that info it narrows it down.
