Question about 1991 Chevrolet Corsica

1991 Chevy Corsica Starts up and Dies 5 minutes later

I have a 1991 Chevy Corsica. I start up it and it dies when I put it into gear. Do this three times and it stays running for 5-10 minutes then dies and won't start. After 1 hour it will start up and do the same thing. What could be causing this?? I have replaced the spark plugs in it. One other thing is that the temp gauge goes to half way and if i turn the heat on it goes back down to where it is supposed to be. I replaced the thermostat. What could be causing this?? I need HELP. PLEASE??

Sounds like a faulty sensor. Have you changed your fuel filter? Checked all vacuum lines? Any check engine light on?

1991 Corsica dies after being put in gear.


Hi

You need to get two things checked. Ignition and Fuel.

Ignition: typically in this order ... Start off from sparking plugs ,,, move to leads (get them changed) and on to the ignition coil if there is no spark coming out of it. In case of fuel, the carb needs a clean and a good carb cleaner or fuel treatment (added to the fuel tank) wont do any harm. You should open up the carb filter. Remove it and change it if its dirty. Start the engine rev it up and while its revved up (throttle flap open) spray the carb cleaner or in this will clean the carb cleaner from inside. If the power gradually increases its a clear sign that you need to open up the carb and get the jets cleaned. properly.

Hope that this fixya will get you on the roads soon :)

Regards :)
