my 95 Chevy Ilumina does same thing. I have tried many things changing fuel filter and spark plugs has helped in the past also I have replaced my fuel pump many times. I am experiencing this problem again.
what year?era is specific.
Start it up again.
If it's a 3.1 Liter engine ...... check the wire behind the engine for the crank positioning senser ... it might be chaffed or the plastic worn off and touching the frame of the car.
TRy checking the fuel filter
Wait a second, then start it again.
It cold be either a plugged fuel filter or an electronic ignition component that is failing from heat stress.
TCC Solenoid needs to be replaced. Usually the cost is around the $150 area +/- $25. my lumina euro just died at a stoplight one day, started right back up, but died as soon as I put it into gear. My transmission sensor needed replaced
If it will re-start after a few minutes and then stall again, the problem is probably a fuel restriction - check the fuel filter or look for an obstruction somewhere in the fuel line (kinks, etc). If it stalls because it is flooding, check and/or replace the air filter and/or the spark plug.
Take it to auto zone and have the codes read for free.
There is a common problem with Chevy. You have just described it. I have had this problem with a couple of them. a 1988 Pontiac 6000 2.4L and a 1995 Chevy Lumina 3.0L. The 6000 had a bad Ignition Control Module and the Lumina had a bad fuel pump. The Lumina started up fine, I drove for about 4 minutes and then it would cut off. The 6000 was going down the highway. I got off at an exit and it died. The next day I went to the car and it started right up. I drove it until it warmed up and then it would cut out again. I would start by taking the Ignition Control Module out and having it tester at an auto parts store. Most of them do bench tests while you wait usually for free. Good Luck.
If the loss of power is sudden in only a few minutes, turn it off. If it starts back up and runs fine for a few minutes the loses power, it could be fuel starvation, check the fuel system for pressure, and change the fuel filter. If it starts up with the loss of power, and the engine has to cool down before it runs fine again it could be something electrical that is overheating and breaking down. Check the ignition coils.
mite be fuel filter. either old or clogged up.
Check for fuel pump pressure; you may have a fuel pump that is going out.
There is most likely something in the gas tank. When the car starts the fuel pump starts sucking in fuel and when the trash gets to it the gas will not be able to flow through the clogged pump so the car stalls. When it stalls the fuel pump stops suction and the trash comes out allowing it to start again.
It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.
I had a similar experience with my 1987 Chevy Celebrity. In my car's case I replaced the ignition module and the crankshaft position sensor. Between the two the problem seems to be fixed.
Turn the radio off. Push the set button until the : blinks. Push scan to change the hours and the seek to change the minutes. When complete, push the set button again and your done.
My guess would be the master cylinder failed.
Horse stalls should be of a size that can allow the horse to freely turn around in, be able to lie down and easily get up again. Sizes are of such a wide range now that they are a variety of sizes.
I would start off by checking any vaccum hoses for leaks.
what could cause a car to run for 20 minutes and dye and waiting about 5 minutes it will start back up and run for a couple of minutes and then have to wait and it will start back up and go for about 5 minutes and dye again. Chevy cavalier 2004
