I have the same issue. The manual points to issues with the EVAP canister, hoses, etc. The canister is under the car in the middle, about where the rear seats would start.

There has to be some type of sensor around where the cap goes on that is either dirty or faulty.

I have a 02 olds aurora 3.5 it kill and want start back in time

More info would help, but things such as a bad gas cap vent, bad ignition module, bad coil or even bad fuel pump or dirty filter could cause this. Run diagnostic test to see if fuel pressure is dropping, if spark is going away, or other.

I just bought an 2001 aurora and it was sitting for a year and at this time we have started it three times it runs for about three minutes then it stalls out and ideas ??

It could have bad gas or plugged injectors in it. Try a bottle of water remover and octane booster in the tank to keep it running, the next time you fill it up put in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner. I would also change the fuel filter, as any water that it caught has probably started to rust it from the inside. The other thing to try would be to loosen the gas cap after it stalls. Does it **** in air? if so mice have made a nest on top of the gas tank and plugged up the tank vent. You will have to drop the tank to fix this.

Not every day, but occasionally , maybe twice a week when I try to start the car nothing happens. After a few tries it will start and not do this for maybe 10 to 20 starts. Has been like this for...

Try cleaning your battery cables - especially the bottom ends. The bottom side of cables are ignored or overlooked because they're a pain to get to. But they're exposed to grease, road grime, etc... When cold cables contract and if there's grease & dirt in there it creates resistance. You attempt to start a couple times, cables get hot and expand make contact, Clean cables with a good wire brush
