1987 corvette starts and runs smooth. 5 to 10 seconds later it shuts down like the key was turned off. Alt. tested and was bad. Replaced alt. Battery tested. Failed test and replaced it. Still quits...


This sounds like you may have an ignition module failing. Run it and when it dies, have some one crank it while you check for spark. If no spark is found, replace the ignition module. This piece runs about $75. Not too bad relatively. Let me know what you find.

2001 pontiac bonneville SSEi 3.8 l supercharged. The car runs smooth for 15-30 min then stalls out. And when you attempt to restart it starts and idles up and down. And dies after 30 sec. With no check...


I have a 2000 Bonneville - I had a problem with the car stalling out - then it did not want to start back up. (When it did it would idle up and down and then die) I changed out the mass air flow sensor - now I have not had a problem. Good luck with it.
