Help?

When my 95 Jeep Cherokee Sport gets hot it shuts off. It will start back up when it cools down to 100, otherwise it will just crank. The mechanics don't know whats wrong with it or how to fix it. I was wondering if anyone knew what is wrong with it or how to fix it?


Thank,
Sam Adams

Ok you say the pedal stops working, I assume you mean it just doesn't do anything when you step on it, it still moves normally though right? Do a visual check of your exhaust system anywhere the fuel lines and tank are near it, make sure its not leaking or routed improperly and heating up your fuel.
