I know we're here for the 8, but my 2004 8 is running perfectly so far. But my winter beater ( which still gets driven on lousy days) keeps shutting down. Can someone direct me to a forum that discusses 626 issues. I'll outline the problem if someone has an idea. Runs fine on cool days. When temperatures are high it will run fine then all of a sudden quit. Let it cool for 15 minutes, it will run fine for another 10 and so on. It isn't getting spark. It's a 93 626 2.0L. Please don't yell at me.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks VERY much for the link. Didn't know it existed. I was leaning toward distributor but replaced cap and rotor first thinking heat would affect small arc tracks and possibly ground out. I appreciate the opinion- will search out a used one.
And thanks for not yelling.
snap-on, my money is on it being the distributor also: FSO1-18-200 is the one.It's a hard one to find since it was only available in the 93 626, MX-6 and Probe 4cyl (also 5speed 94 models).
By the way, what's a CMP sensor? Is it the same as the ignitor because that's generally what fails with these.
Best of luck Rick/Kimberly.
