Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe
After driving it , and turn off engine won't restart after it sets a couple hrs it will start and run fine for a couple months before it does it again , this last time it kept wanting to die when i would stop at a traffic light as i would start to take off when light turned green ,as i would push on gas pedal it would start to cut out ,and it finally died as i was pulling from light . pushed it into parking lot , let it set for a few hrs and it started right up . may not do it again for a couple months
Please check for any loose wire under hood or connectors , Or any electrical fault in the car please get it checked for any error code in the car and let me know....

In the instruction booklet for the ignition box there is a section
under trouble shooting there is a section called testing for spark.
Unfortunately you need to run the motor till it will not fire to do the
test. I would highly recommend checking any crimps extensions etc on
the wires going to the box. Make sure we did not do a bad job and
miss-crimp a wire end or something. The time it died for a half hour
would indicate an intermittent problem in one of the components, box
coil distributor, but the shutting of and starting right back up
normally points at a connection or something. Make sure that the ground
to the unit is ok, that the ground from the battery to the block is in
good shape etc. But really look at the harness on the box to coil, box
to distributor and box top battery.
hope this may help;
