Sounds like an electrical problem, check your alternator an battery tru a shop, if the gages go crazy is a sign of the computer trying to shut down componets because the lack of power or voltage

good luck!

If you do a lot of city driving then the catalytic can fail between 150k to 170k.

if you replace module and still had no spark. then it was not the module it could be the ignition coil. you need spark no spark no run...check power to the distrbutor. check that the distrbutor is turning.

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather


Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

This sounds like a PCM overheating. I would have the truck looked at with a professional shop. I don't recommend a website diagnostic on this one or home repair either. This problem could become expensive proceed with caution if you choose to do this at home. Some part stores can program PCM's but please get a professional diagnois
