Default 88 4cyl runs for a while, then will not restart.

I have a 88 4cyl camry with some unknown problem. About a week ago, It began
to not restart after about 15 minutes of driving. If would run again after
18-24 hours of sitting. Now, it doesn't seem to start at all. I do know that
it isn't a fuel problem. Someone mentioned a cold start valve. Does this
sound right, and where is it located? And any other suggestions?

Try checking the ignition coil primary and secondary windings'
resistance against specifications.
That could be your problem.
Sounds like it starts up fine when cold, so would rule out problems
with fuel at cold start.
Might also check the coolant temperature sensor (if you have fuel
injection) for proper operation.
