Mcdevito75 here, Could be the coils or the ignition module. Have your shop check it out.

1986 chevy truck with 350 4 barrel carb runs great for awhile then dies


If you have no spark at the plugs when it quits running, you need to test the remainder of ignition parts, such as the coil and ignition module.
For that you will need a repair book for the procedures.

sounds like it could be a coil issue after its been sitting for awhile it starts again correct? when its running the coil will warm up and if there is a small crack in it anywhere it will seperate and loose its contact therefore interupting the spark for the engine and it will die. or it could be a bad fuel pump or even cheeper yet check the fuel filter.

Engine dies while idling, then car won't start for a few minutes


One possibility is a blocked fuel line or filter. It basically runs out of fuel and you have to wait for it to come through slowly. The other possibility is the ignition system is losing spark as something heats up. You have to wait until it's cooled down before it runs again.

95 vilager 3.0 die when its hot out. when i let it cool it wiil run for awhile, any time its 86 degrees or hotter i have this problems not sure (ignition mod, coolent sensor, weak fulpump, vaperlock)


When it dies you need to figure out what is missing, ie fuel pressure, spark, tour are probly losing spark when it occurs pull of on of the plug wires at the coil and have someone crank the engine while you hold that wire 1/4 inch away from being plugged in not touching but close, see if the spark jumps this gap, of not you have either a failing coil pack, or a bad crankshaft position sensor, I would start with the coil, please rate or leave feedback good luck

Van dies after 10 min drive when pulling into


Try removing the idle speed motor on side of throttle body, and spray it clean, as well as the port it came out of, with throttle body spray cleaner. Don't pull and extend shaft of idle motor, just leave it in position it's in, and make sure you don't lose small "O" ring on idle motor. Re-install and try it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace the idle speed motor.

My 1997 buick lesabre runs for awhile then dies. let it set for awhile and it will start back up.


While it is acting up check for spark at the spark plugs.You want to do this after it dies and will not start.If spark is good then check fuel pressure.The fuel pressure should be 48-55 psi with the key on and engine off.Let me know what you find Good luck.

1999 chevy tahoe...got spark and fuel but will not start. new coil,new crank sensor, new plugs. still won't start. all fuses are good. randomly it will run for a few days and then it will die. HELP. have...


Well, since it runs for a few days, we'll assume that compression is not an issue. When it dies, it has to be losing either spark, fuel, or air. It must be found out which one before you can find ot why.

These V6's are notorious for bad distrbutors. They get hot and a circuit opens and the engine loses spark. Buy a new or one with a warranty. Used ones have the same problem....
