    Hi Mark,

    I don't have a fuego to run out and look at, but I bet yours has an electronic ignition. Some part of it will be going open circuit when it gets hot. Maybe Leigh will jump in and tell you what to look for. Trace the wires back from the distriutor and you'll probably find an electronic gismo on your firewall. This is problematic on a lot of older cars. Start the car cold, then heat this up with a hair dryer or something to test it. If the car stops as soon as you've warmed it you've found your problem.
