Have your alternator tested.Your car will not stay running if the alternator is not producing enough power to keep the battery charged.Also have your battery tested and fully charged.Make sure your cables are in good shape.

1990 6 cly chevy lumina starter


Assuming it will start again once it is warmed up, it is likely the battery is in poor condition/will not hold a charge. Unhook the battery once the car is running; if it continues to run, your charging system is probably OK, and the problem is likely to be the battery. If the problem continues after replacing the battery, you probably have a slow drain or short somewhere in the wiring harness. Best of luck on that one.
