If car shuts off while driving it could be a bad crank sensor. a bad crank sensor will shut car off while driving, then it will not start for about 10 minutes, when it starts it runs fine until it goofs up again. the popping could be the sensor for it controls timing along with the cam sensor.

Likely to be a solenoid or alternator problem. It's running off the battery then dies when the battery is dead.

Start with the throttle body. I use brake clean and a toothbrush. Clean the plate and were it sits. Wouldn't hurt to spray down the MAF sensor, if it has one. Once you do it, it will take a few seconds to start. Once started, rev it up and spray inside the throttle. Keep it running. Most times this is a $4 fix.

I just bought a 1983 GMC high sierra the guy i bought it from said it had been sitting for a couple of years but he came out at least once a month and cranked it anyways i drove the truck before i bought...


It could be bad gas or a clogged fuel filter and maybe a clogged fuel jet in the carburettor.

Start with checking the fuel filter first. If it has dirty fuel in it, it probably clogged the filter and then the jets. That's common in cars and trucks who are left with gas in them and sit for long periods of time.

Hope this helps?

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

Main relay. Done hundreds of the especially if the vehicle has over 200K on them. Which by the way for this car its just getting broken in. main relay is under dash driver side . A little bit of a pain to reach but all in all an easy fix.

Overheating-shuts off on the slightest grade


Thermostat should help but make sure fuel line isn't too close to heat source (engine or exhaust). This can perk your gas.
