Can you help?

Calibra 2.0i 8v

Runs for about 10 - 15 mins then cuts out, and wont restart,

It runs really lumpy before it cuts out, and it wont restart revs to about 3k and then stalls.

Left it for a while, and restarts and its magic again for another 10 - 15 mins

I have changed the fuel pump relay, and its still the same, any other ideas ?!?!

checked the fault codes, sounds like somthing getting a fault once its heated up, my mate had a very similar problem, was his crankshaft sensor

check your ecu codes first :)

Could be a dodgy coolant sender, might reach a certian temp then go wonky decide its -50 degrees and adds a crap load of fuel and stalls it.

Probs like these dont show up as a fault cos its still within operational tolerences.

Could be the crank sensor like Trickster said. When it does it again spray the crank sensor with an aerosol, BO spray, carb cleaner whatever, it will cool it down and see if it works fine then.

Thanks for the feedback so far!

It has had a recent coolant temperature sensor, I will check my ECU codes, when I get to work tomorrow!

Thanks once again for the feedback, and advice! :)
