1993 C900 2.1 Runs, heats up, dies, cools, re-starts

Hi. My '93 2.1 starts and seems to run fine - till it warms up a bit. Then whether idling or driving, it will stall. It will not restart until it cools off. Then it repeats the same thing. Max runs for about 20 minutes.

I replaces the mass airflow sensor cuz it is so easy. Have gone no further yet. Appreciate the help.

This is a common symptom of a failing crank position sensor. I would check that first.
