Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

In some cases on some models if the engine over heats it can cause a fault code to set which the computer can then disable engine starting to prevent any damage to the engine.If you have not had the fault codes checked at all to see what codes are set this should be done.This will need done with a scan tool/computer plugged into your vehicle that can communicate with all computers.Once this is done any codes set need diagnosed to see if there is an actual fault needing repaired or replaced and the codes cleared out to see if this corrects the fault.In some cases all that is needed is to have the codes cleared out for proper operation from there.The engine computer may be disabling the fuel causing this until the codes are either cleared out or diagnosed and repaired then cleared out with a scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicle.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
