My car is sputtering and dying. If I try to restart it, it will immediately go into sputtering/dying mode. If I wait a while an hour or so it will start up and drive fine.


When was the last time that the carburetor was stripped and cleaned? Also have you checked the fuel filter? Finally, the problem seems to come and go as the engine is run (and it gets hot) check that the fuel line and any electrical cables are well away from the hot engine as far as is possible.

My 1995 jeep will die just driving and sometimes will start right back up other times you have to wait about an hour. fuel pump is working fine you can hear it


The pump can be running but not pumping any fuel.
When it stops running you will need to figure out if you are loosing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors.

1996 oldsmobile 88 will start but dies out and when trying to start again it will not start only crank an hour later it will start fine and die out after half hour and will not start again


This sounds very much like a faulty crankshaft sensor as these are typical symptoms of an intermittent sensor fault that fails when the engine gets hot causing the engine to stall - but works again when the engine cools down.

You may or may not also have an engine check light showing before the engine stalls.

You can have the car scanned for error codes - Autozone will do this for free but if your car is not OBD II compliant they may or may not have the earlier OBD I reader.

You can check the crank sensor using an oscilloscope but this is a bit involved and you will need to have the equipment and knowhow. To be honest I would just change the sensor out as it is not that expensive and is the prime suspect in my view from what you describe.

Hope this helps. Please do take a minute to leave a vote for the solution.
