That old of a car it could be anything, from fuel to distributor parts, if it dies again try squirting carb cleaner in the throttle body see if it starts, if not its ign prob, replace dist parts

looking to see if its cali or not it should have an AIR system. An AIR pump, and 4 tubes comming out of the exhaust manifold to a valve

Well if your going to take out the tank to replace the screen you might as well change the pump, get a GM pump and screen, aftermarket you have to change wiring also so dont do that

a cap and wire set probally 100.00 bucks, dealer about 175.00 bucks

other parts in distributor are the pole peice or pick up coil you need to ck it with an ohm meter, see if it has continuity through it, it hooks up to your control module, green and yellow wires, hook your ohm meter in thoes 2 wires and pull and tug slightly on them see if the continuity brakes up if it does you have to pull the dist to replace it
