It may be your cold start switch or maybe an coolant temp sensor but sounds just like the cold start

Car wanting to die out on stop n go

Try changing the temperature sending unit. This regulates the cold start mode and it appears it's still in cold start mode and still feeding it too much fuel, causing a flooding condition and making it die at stops. When you depress throttle to go, it's still getting too much fuel and wants to bog and die on take-off.

I came to a stop sign and my car just died ! The motor turns over but it seems not to be getting gas. What should i do ?

I had this same problem at a library, was told by passerby's that I needed a new alternator but I actually had to buy a new fuel pump which is located in the gas tank about $350 later (parts and labor). My car sounded like it wanted to start but then would die...hope this helps.

1990 ford tempo starts but will die after about 10 minutes. the power from the battery is drained and we just bought a brand new battery for it.

Try to start again, then when the engine is start, remove the negative or positive battery cable, and if the engine die, the alternator is failed., and if not dying, alternator still good. But for me the way you said, I'm 100% your alternator is died. Need to replace a new one. And if you know how to solder, just remove and replace the brusses( carbon) by soldering. ok

did it stay running when connected to the car giving the boost? if so then the alternator is not charging the electrical system, get it serviced or replaced.

All the lights on my 2004 s10 blazer are strobing or blinking

Its most likely the voltage regulator which is most often attached or inside the alternator its a replacable item. Normaly the sighns of an alternator gone are a dying battery.
