Does anyone know if the crankshaft sensor will cause a no start condition when engine is warmed up 20/30 minutes. The problem I'm having it will run fine as long as you don't shut it off . Restart is possible if you restart with in a couple minutes after that you have to wait 20 minutes to start.
P0171 code was thrown while cranking. Checked for vacuum leaks an changed
the maf sensor from a my other car. No joy.
The engine will start an run well after cooled and the process will start all over again.
Checked ground connections an even added a extra one.
Any thoughts?

When you have a no start /hot, put a cold wet cloth on the sensor. If it then starts you have a heat soak issue.... Philip

Where is that heat soak,built into the sensor?
If so would replacing the sensor help or is there more to it?
I will check into this tomorrow if it stops raining.

May have worked , applied wet rag and it started . Change sensor an still working.
This sensor is Real Real pita to access. I suggest a person with very small hands and a lot of patience. ( Almost time for the BIG hammer )

Philip thanks for input. > chief

Chief, you are welcome, that is a sure fire diagnostic step for any heat soak issue (cool it).. Philip
