Sounds like ignition module or coil.check for weak spark to the spark plugs when engine is warm. it should jump at least a 1/4 inch gap.

Check the distributor cap and rotor for one. GM has issues with moisture inside the distributor and corrosion in the wiring going into and out of the distributor.

Car died while stooped at light

if it won't run on starting fluid then you have a no spark issue. i'd check spark out of the coil to the distributor. you could have a bad ignition control module or coil

My car will run fine till it gets hot it will stall then it want start till it sits for thirty minutes then it will start then

Replace hall effect pick up plate in distributor. Remove distributor cap, and rotor. Black round plate under rotor is the pick up. Remove it, unplug wiring, align it same as old one and install new, plug it in, replace rotor and cap. It was a common problem for those.motor1258_16.jpg

Car stalls

Hello and thank your for choosing I suggest changing the fuel filter and air filter to begin with. If that doesn't fix it, you may have a couple of plugged fuel injectors, or you may need to replace the coil pack and modular or distirbutor cap and rotor (whichever is equipped); either one, it is a good idea to also change the spark plugs and wires. Coil packs can be tested to determine whether they're good or not. Distributor caps and rotors will have obvious damage that will indicate the need for replacement. Modulars may have a melted, or bubbled look to the material on top of them (coil pack(s) ) removed. If the modular is bubbled, replace it, keeping the original coil pack(s) and try that - also, if equipped with a distributor; before replacing cap and rotor, make sure that the coil wire is secure at both end. (it will be the center wire in the distributor cap) and runs to the coil.
Please let me know if you need further information or have any other questions or comments. Thank you again for choosing
