Random shut off

I have a 1996 GMC Sonoma and randomly shuts off once and a great while. It then takes at least 5 minutes to start back up again. What could be the problem?

Check to see if there are tire inflation sensors in the valve stems in the wheels. If it has these, they could be the problem.

ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT THE WIRING AND THE HORN ITSELF TO SEE IF EVERYTHING LOOKS OK THERE.

i had the same problem with my 96 sonoma, just died anywhere at anytime, even happened to shop mechanics. They checked fuel and spark, there was none. Ended up putting a new computer on it and it has not happened again. The computer was not communicating with anything, just be sure that you get new comp. programmed to your vehicle. Had to send mine out and get done

1991 gmc sonoma random loss of power


could be the crankshaft sensor causing the timing to be off if it has a coilpack type distributor or if it has a gear driven distributor then it could be either the distributor itself or possibly just cap and rotor
