Laser 2000 LXi stopping in hot weather.

My sedan has just over 100,000 kms on the clock (I'm in Australia, that equals about 60,000 miles )
In the last couple of years it has been stopping after about twenty minutes driving in town or about an hour on the highway, only during hot weather conditions.

The temperature gauge shows normal and the radiator is not overheating.
Once it stops it won't start until it has cooled down a bit.

I've had a couple of mechanics look at it and they couldn't come up with anything, one ran it for a long time without any problems.

I think it may happen more with the airconditioning on.

Has anyone experienced similar issues, or have any advice/thoughts?

Re: Laser 2000 LXi stopping in hot weather.

Is it tossing a code or giving you a CEL?

Re: Laser 2000 LXi stopping in hot weather.

If it has a crank sensor , could be that .Ignition module / ignitor are also common failures after running for a short time and once heating up .

Where is your ignition module located in your ford laser?

The module is in the distributor. You have to dismantle the distributor to replace. The module is conected to a small coil by push in clips. The coil sits around the center spindle and the module is held by 2 screws. White heat sink grease is supplied with the new mod. and is applied to the back before screwing down. The wires then clip on to the module. Usually when gone, the car stops and can be re-started after a while.
