If the problem you are having after the engine warms up and you put the transmission in gear and it quits, unplug the torgue converter (overdrive). If the engine runs fine after this, then change your transmission fluid and hook the torgue converter back up and she will run like a champ. I had the same problem.

1989 S-10 started running rough, now it's not running at all.


WOW ! believe it or not you did good ! what else could it be ? does this engine have a MAS, mass air flow sensor ? sell your scanner or take it back for refund, buy a new MAS, if your engine has one, and replace your air cleaner if you haven't. this part is a major player, if you have one, make sure its an OEM replacement part, not after market ! have you checked all your VACUUM LINES, is this an automatic ? anther thing, now that I'm thinking, what kind of COIL do you have ? I would suspect your coil and all that relates to the coil ! DO THIS FIRST ! before anything else. then more on, but I have a idea that this is it, go for it, when coils get too hot they tend to go bad, how are your spark plug wires ?

2.8 engine Would start when cool, but stall after


89 cierra? It should be DIS ignition so you can't have the timing too high. You said it has fuel and spark. Fuel pressure and injection pulse. Does it try to start if you spray carb cleaner into it?

1992 Pontiac Grand PrixPower loss,erratic idle


spark plug gaps are very critical on computerised cars!! [some wont even start!]
distributor module may be breeaking down as temp rises they fail!
otherwise do compression check as it may have valve problems
also check plug leads & injectors aswell as the fuel pump pressure [ could bestarving for fuel]

Engine starts up and after 1-5 minutes the engine will stall


the ECM is located under the hood on the passenger side under the coolant resevrior. i think you should get some professional advise before replacing all those parts.
