You need to drive it, and when it stalls and won't start, then is when you need to check to see what you are loosing. Spark? fuel pump? or injector signal?
Spark, you will need to hook up a spark tester to one of the plug wires and have someone turn it over.
fuel pump, leave the key off for a minute, and then turn it to "run" and see if you hear the pump. (listen at the gas cap, as it should cycle for a second or two)
Injector signal, for this you need a "noid" tester that plugs in where your harness meets the injector, and have someone turn over the engine with the key, and you should see a blinking light, meaning that your computer is telling the injectors to fire.

Drivability problems after driving 20 - 30 miles


Try changing or switching out the distributor. Most likely getting hot and shuts down. Does it crank but no start whenever it stops? May only start when it cools down again.

My car shuts off and stalls sometimes when i am


Could be fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter, coil, spark plugs, plugged catalitic converter, injectors or a host of other things. Start with the simple things like air filter, see if its dirty, then fuel filter especially if it has not been changed for many miles. Check battery connections, ground wires from body to motor and ground wire from battery to motor and body

I HAVE SEVEN EMISSION CODES THAT NEED SOLVING I CAN DRIVE THE CAR BUT AFTER A FEW MILES IT STARTS STALLING AND WILL SHUT OFF ON ME. IF I WAIT A HALF HOUR OR SO I CAN GET IT TO START A GAIN . ITS LIKE WHEN...


First things first. 1. Get the codes from the system. 2. ahve the fuel pressure tested. 3. check the fuel filter(replace as necessary). This sounds like you have a bad MAF(mass air flow sensor). Check these items and let me know.

Wont keep idle, car stalls out


I had this same problem on my 2005 monte carlo, took mechanic a while to figure out it was the idle air control valve. They also replace the idle air control motor.

Will start up run for awhile then stall and wont restart


Hello, I would start with a general tune up. Spark plugs and wires, Fuel Filter, Oil Change and Filter Change, Air Filter Change, Some injector cleaner would not hurt eirther. Be sure to lubricate your high mileage car and also use a farily good oil for your motor as well. The run for awhile problem sounds like bad spark plugs. I would change your spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotarty button.
