So I just cleaned the IAC had some carbon build up, cleaned the MAF, new pcv valve & hose...... It only happened every once and a while before, I mean 3 times in 4 years on long road trips. BUT as last week it's happening all the time now. It is as if it's not getting gas on key start up when the car is hot. I can turn it off and start it right back up when it hot, I just cant let it sit for more then 5 minutes or it will not start until the temp gauge is almost all the way down. Does that make sense? It is even happening now after 10 minutes of driving.

I have had been through EVERY problem with this car but not this. UGH!
