Hello everyone ! I have a question concerning our 92 saturn sl dohc. When you start up the car it will idle okay for 15 to 20 minutes, then shut off.When I try to restart it there is no current to the spark plugs(I checked).If you let the car sit for awhile it will restart fine. I checked the codes and came up with a map sensor fault. The map sensor was replaced but it did not alleviate the problem. The car will also shut down when your are driving it for the same amoutn of time(15-20min),just like someone turned the key off. The car just recently had the alternator and both coolant sensors replaced. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Sounds like typical symptoms for a crankshaft position sensor (CPS) failure (shuts off when hot, no spark present). I've never had it happen personally, but that's what I've seen frequently described on the board.
