Q: Car popping and dying.

asked by on

My car starts fine and runs great for about 15 minutes, before popping and dying, and not starting again until completely cooled off. The Check Engine light comes off when it dies, but then goes off again once the engine has cooled. I replaced all three coils and it is still doing this.
