If there is an Auto Zone around your area, have your Ignition control module (ICM) tested. It's common for the ICM to fail when they heat up causing the engine to stop running. The ICM is located under the rotor in the distributor, check the wire's and look for any corrosion or damaged wires to the ICM. The ICM is $40.00 and Auto Zone will have the step by step instruction for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

    Welcome, there is a vent screen on the bottom side of the distributor so it can breath preventing condensation to form. The screen is known to get plugged up by dirt and condensation forms causing corrosion to the wire and promoting the ICM to fail. keep me posted.

I have ford escape that run for and shut off after 5 minutes

Test using fuel pressure gauge and spark test to determine what is causing shut down. If fuel, filter, regulator or pump could be bad. If spark, things which might fail as they heat up include coil/module, crank/cam sensors, coolant temp sensor.

94 bravada temp.gauge not working on dash could it be temp.sensor

It could be the sensor or the wire harness it self where it connect's the the sensor. There is just one lead wire and it may be damaged due to corrosion or a broken wire. Check the wire first before replacing the sensor, remember the Bravada is 15 years old. Good luck friend and keep me posted, be glad to know you got your Olds running 100% again.

94 Bravada that stumbles and stalls.. won't start when warm..

Try checking the exhaust flow when someone else is pushing down on the gas petal.The farther the petal gos down,the more exhaust should be coming out. I replaced my catalitic convertor at 44000 miles, it was clogged. I had them install a high flow type.
