These cars are carburated motors and need around 10 minutes to warm up because they operate at higher temperatures.

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.


a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,

When it is cold car starts well if you let run for about 10 min.


I WOULD HAVE A TECH RUN A SCAN OF YOUR ENGINE COMPUTER TO SEE IF IT HAS ANY FAULT CODES STORED IN IT.
Sounds like the cold enrichment strategy in the computer is not working. Just a guess.
