Engine Mechanical problem
1976 Pontiac Firebird V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 220000 miles
my firebird runs great when first started, it warms up and all the thermal sensors work good. It will run for about 10 to 15 min and then it will die like a rock-no spit or sputter-- just quit. I can turn the switch and it starts right back up for maybe 3 min--I can keep doing this for 3 or 4 times and each time it dies faster, and after a while it won't start at all unless I let it set and cool off.
In the past 6 mo I've replaced the carb, egr valve, plugs wires --one year ago cap and rotor.
with all this I'm at a loss why it just dies when it gets hot, it doesnt over heat!
There is an electronic modul in the distributor, if this goes bad is it possible it can open and close some how to creat this problem? Thanks for your help!
have the same problem?
