Default 97 Sportage (Gas/Petrol) wont Idle

hi all

My 97 Sportage runs well but when it slows to idle it conks out and cant be started again for 20-30 minutes. My mechanic has checked the ignition system and all looks OK. Problem seems intermittent.
Someone suggested fuel pump but it does it on gas as well!
It is very frustrating! Any ideas??
cheers scott

Gas (propane/LPG?), your issue seems heat induced, look for issues with the CAS (Cam Angle Sensor)... Philip
