Question 99 Taurus se 3.0 will not start after warm

I have a 99 taurus with a 3.0 v6 (not the dohc) it starts great and runs great I can drive it for a while and then shut it off and it will not restart... if it sits for 15 mins or so it will start and run again kinda stumped here could it be crank or cam sensor oh by the way no ceck engine light on... Any help would be great !

Re: 99 Taurus se 3.0 will not start after warm

A crank sensor is a possibility. If you haven't had a tune up done in the last while I'd get new plugs installed and the timing checked. Also get the cooling system checked out. An engine that runs too hot can cause the engine to go into what's known as a 'safe mode' so it doesn't cause damage to itself from overheating.
