I have had battery and alternator checked, both are good. Battery was dead, jumped car, started and ran fine. Drove 30 minutes, shut off and sat for 2 hours. Started fine again, just went to gas station...

Most likely you have a bad battery. The second option is that you have a faulty wiring and there is a constant load that takes a lot of power, but it does not make a short circuit. Check the electrical relays, maybe it's in them.

Drivability problems after driving 20 - 30 miles

Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Starting probles

have them check the ignition !!!

I had a 1990 Cutlass that did the same thing. It would turn over but not start when it got hot too or just cut out on me right on the road. I had it in the shop 2x's , thought it was fixed and got it out of the shop only to have it die later that night in the pitch dark. I had it towed back to the shop , they let it run , hoping it would cut out and it did. It was the ignition.. when it would overheat it would just shut off the car ... you couldn't start it peroid! Like you said 20 to 30 minutes later when it cooled down the car would start back up just fine ... then you'd drive it , it would heat back up, the car wouldn't start again for another 20 to 30 minutes !

hope that helps !
