Ignition module or coils may be heat failing.

Go to Autozone or one of them and get the trouble codes read. Probably something there, maybe a crank or cam position sensor code, or also could be something in the ignition system like a bad coil or the ignition control module. The ICM controls the ignition coils' circuit, both of these two items can go bad and then fail when warmed up. Backfiring, shaking, and coughing kinda sounds like a bad crank sensor, but that's just a guess. Check for trouble codes first.

My 1999 chevy tracker will not start


Well the alternator won't have anything directly to do with an engine not starting. Only if the battery is dead because the alternator is not charging it.
If the engine cranks but does not start, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or compression to proceed with testing.

Will the fuel pump prevent a 1999 chevy tracker from firing


Yes... the 'firing' is the fuel combusting in the chamber being ignited by the spark plugs.... No fuel? no fire.

Gets warm, when you cut it off it will not start back.


You are more than likely correct about the coil pack.  A lot of times, especially in warmer weather, this happens as coil packs start to go bad.  What happens, is as they start to fail, they get too hot and won't function properly so when you are waiting 20 to get the car started again it is giving it time to cool back down.  Take it to your local auto parts store and let them test it.  That should be your problem and will be an easy fix for you.  Good job with the diagnosis.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!
