Engine Mechanical problem
1979 Chevy El Camino V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 0 miles

cold it would start up fine. But after driving around until needle hits normal tempeture and shut it down, it cranks along time turn it back on, I have to let it sit down, then I can crank it back up. This problem is draining my battery alot, well hopefully I hear from u guys. Thanks

Maybe hot soak condition. When it's hot shut off see if fuel is leaking from carb into engine. Do you have a 4-BBL or 2?
