Question about Cars & Trucks
My 1993 Pontiac Trans Am LT1 5.7 cu in. will only run for about 5 minutes, then shuts down as if to run out of fuel.
You'll have to do some investigating to find out.
First, is it a lack of spark to the plugs, or fuel to the injectors ?
Then, is it something getting hot like a relay or the coil, or something like a build up of pressure in the gas tank.

Sounds like your security system is shutting the car down. You should be able to leave the key on for 15 minutes and it will reset itself. Make sure you are using factory keys, and they are in good condition.

On some models, the Engine Control unit has a power supply relay. These relays some times get internal dry solder points. After driving for some time the the solder will get hot and separate. When it cools down it makes contact again. You will have to replace this relay or open it up and re- solder the solder joints. The relay is usually located on the main relay station in position 3. the relay station is located behind the right dash panel.[right hand drive vehicles]. You may need to refer to a manual for your specific model to find the exact location of the relay.
