Back on topic, I really couldnt tell ya what is wrong. My dad had a 85 Chevy van that did that when it got too hot. It was odd and we never found the problem.
I know, bad going to Jiffy Lube...but they treat me well and its addicting lol. Trans fluid really needed to be changed too...it was hellavula dirty....

It sounds like it'* ignition related... only thing throwing me off is the pumping the gas and it'll try to start...gotta sleep on it.
the "pumping the gas" trick doesn't always work...as i found out today.
I attempted to drive the car down to my parent'* house [~20miles] and it died about halfway once the engine got a lil' over 200*. I let it sit again for 30mins...and made it a few more miles, but it doesn't last long when there'* a lot of stop and go.
First time it happened it didn't cut right out - but "jumped" [possible misfire?] and the SES light came on. It kept "jumping" after that and then died. Once it cooled, and I started it again - the light was gone.
We're gonna go with the ICM [Ignition Control Module?] idea as it sounds about right at this point. I asked a mechanic i know and he suggested the same as they'll shut things off when they get hot.
As a quick fix [and to test the theory] we're gonna switch the modules from my dad'* old '93 [SLE?] to my '92 [SSEi] and see what that does...
