I bought the car a few months ago and it's in great shape. I soon learned though that, if I drive for an hour or more, or if it's a very hot day, something gets hot. The care hasn't shut-off on me, but if I turn-off engine, and start it back up right away, it won't start. It gives a little rumble as if it will start, but it won't start. When I let it cool down for twenty minutes or so, it starts like there is no problem.

I took it to Airport/Marina Ford in Culver City, CA., and they couldn't figure out the problem. I took it a very reputable mechanic the other day and he kept it and drove it for four days, and the problem wouldn't even occur for him. I NEED HELP!!!!!!
