More likely it is a fault with the ignition, possible crank sensor or defective ignition module. Have u tested it for trouble codes? if not go to Kragen auto or Autozone they do the test for free.

91 firebird v6 It started up drove it around block let sit for 45

my car is doing the exact same thing. these cars have a tendancy to jump time. the best way to check is to pull ur plugs and turn the motor over by hand till the #1 cylinder(front left side of engine) is up. u tell if its up by putting a screwdriver or something in the hole. then go to ur distributer and see if the rotor tip is on the #1 spot on the cap. if not the timing is off.

check you ignition components to see if they are worn or faulty, this is usually the cheapest part that can cause this problem since your tach runs off the ignition.check fuel filter before fuel pump as this could be clogged and also not as expensive as a pump or oxy sensor. a faulty oxy sensor will set a code.
