Engine died at low speed. Could not start engine in hot weather

I own a 3.8 L 1998 Mustang. In hot weather, engine could not be started and engine also died in hot weather at slow speed (10-15 mph). When the engine died, it took about 2 hours later then the engine can start again. Electrical problem? Need to fix soon. Dealership could not duplicate problems. Thanks.

Fuel pump perhaps, in conjunction with a bad fuel filter perhaps?

How hot was it? Could have been a vapor lock.

At 116 F mine ran fine...I still say it's either fuel pump or filter or a combination of both.

+1, maybe even vapor lock.
