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

Do you
have the same problem?

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.
