My car dies intermittently : 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

I put a new ignition module and crank sensor. It dies after it has run about 10-15 min. depending on how warm it is out. The warmer it is the faster it dies.

    After it warms up to operating tempter. Do a compression test of all the cylinders. Do a dry test first then a wet test. If you get a difference it could be a head gasket.

      This site has a lot of repair shops listings I would recommend to look up the closest one to you and give them a call.

        It does sound electric related. Maybe try cam sensor.

          According to oriellys this does not have a cam sensor. I have looked for one and did not find one
