Just had battery replaced on 1989 Cutlass Ciera, 2.5L, and now it stalls after a few minutes, and under 1/4 mile of driving.  Any idea as to why?

Throw the old battery back in it and see if it still does it, most likely does't have anything to do with the new battery.

Been having same problem. Ran car several timez this last month near empty on gas. I believe the gad filter got clogged with bottom-tank gook. It wld start up, drive, then cut out & not start right up. Battery/alternator ok. Guna change the gas filter 2 morro. Try that....might work
