Default '01 Camry shuts down.

Hello all,
I have a question about an '01 Camry 4 cyl.
This car is used as a taxi here in Cairns, Australia. It has approx 567,000
klms on the clock and has given no trouble till just lately.
We have changed the computer, fuel pump, fuel filter, plugs and leads.
The car still cuts out and won't restart for about 15 minutes, when it does
start it runs as good as new.
We have come to our wits end as what is causing this problem, any help would
be greatly appreciated.
John.

Get a repair shop to measure if the ignition system is OK. It could be
a rotor or distribution cap that is faulty...

Sounds like an electronic part is getting overcome by heat. This might be
the ignition unit or the induction pickup(s). Also, considering the high
mileage and use, the ignition switch itself may be suspect. DO unplug,
clean, and reconnect everything having to do with the starting/running
circuitry under the hood.

I had a coil do that and on another motor a 2 stroke an ignition module.
It could be several things. When it happens start to trace everything
back starting with spark at the plugs, or voltage at the distributor.

On my 01 now when it rains or is humid it starts in the morning and
after it is warm it cuts out till I let it sit for 30 minutes till the
coil dries, I need a coil and I suspect the last mechanic to change the
cap reused the old Cap gasket and it does not seal.
Is that car original motor and trans, You have alot of km on it ,nice to
hear they run that long

I think Philip is on target here. Very often a failing ignition module
will react that way when hot.

I would like to thank you all for you advice.
The problem has been solved, it was a faulty New fuel pump.
Guess because it is new it doesn't mean it is right.
Many thanks.
John.
