I have a 1992 buick century. I replaced the ignition control modular and coil pack. Could it be a sensor?

When it dies, you need to check to see if the engine is getting spark and the proper amount of fuel. Once you do that, then you can focus on a specific component.

It gets spark & fuel. It dies when it's warm. Sometimes it will start in an hour and sometimes overnight.

Sorry - no spark but fuel. Same others apply.

Okay, if it loses spark and won't restart, it is an ignition system issue. The first thing that I would start with is the crank sensor.

Will the temperature sensor or the oil pressure sensor cause it to die?

Can the crank sensor be tested on vehicle?

I believe your vehicle will shut down if the oil pressure is lost. As far as the crank sensor, I recommend remove it and have a parts store test it for you.
