    Was this helpful with you? My truck is doing the EXACT same thing until it gets to the point where it wont start again. (Replace coil and it'll run again for a couple days not missing a beat) Really getting frustrated with mine. (1991 F250 with the 5.8 351 Windsor)

I inherited a 1990 Charade when Dad died in 2001.
Did you try a simple tune-up? Plugs, Distributor Cap, Plug Wires, Rotor Bug..?
Worse case scenario Timing Belt slipped a notch..

1991chevy lumina starts hard, runs sluggish and then dies when put into drive. already replaced computer


Having replaced the computer, best thing you could do now is a complete tune up-new spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, air and fuel filter. Change the oil and check all fluids. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Check if your catalytic converter is blocked or clogged-if bad, they will plug up and stop the car.

Put a fuel pressure gauge on it and watch it to see if when it dies you are losing fuel pressure. if you dont lose pressure then that eliminates the fuel system
