2003 chevy tracker base model 5 speed 2 door shuts off after driving for about 25 minutes. Engine is really hot, but after cooling for about 15 minutes, engine starts again and car is good to go but just for another 30 minutes or so. I changed fuel filter so far. Radiator is good. Thoughts?

Hot cam position sensor, place a damp towel on the sensor to cool it & it will start right up. Then drive until it's hot again. See if you can improve air circulation.

Service the cooling system before you destroy your engine.
