1989 mustang: that dies when it gets hot, what could that be

I have a 1989 mustang 5.0 that dies when it gets hot, what could that be?

Hello Sir or Madam. Welcome to justanswer!


Its usually the distributor and ignition module. In some cases the red wire at the coil has a fuse link in it on its way to the ignition switch. If it has power at all times then replace the distributor and igntion module. If the wire has low power then run a new one as a jumper tot he igntion switch.
