4 cyl cutting out - Mechanics confused.
1998 is cutting out/shutting down about 10-15 minutes into the ride. Seems to happen after reaching high temperatures. Mechanics thought it might be distributer, plugs or wires. All replaced. Problem continues. Any ideas?
It is most likely your crank position sensor or your cam position sensor. The coil is also a possibility.
On my 97 the wiring for the crank position sensor got too close to the exhaust manifold and melted the insulation enough that a bump would cause the engine to cut out. The CPS is in the transmission bell housing on the drivers side.

Put something over the harness like what's in your engine bay. Use some zip ties and tape on the ends. Make sure the harness is properly positioned in the factory clamp to a bell housing bolt.
