Asked by Apr 17, 2011 at 09:48 PM about the 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

normally this car runs great and has for many years, however recently it just started cutting out as I am driving it down the road.  After I let it sit for about 15 min it will  start again and run for about 20 min and then it will do it again.  It acts as tho something gets hot and needs to cool off.  I tried replacing the ICM and the coils, but it still does it.  HELP!!!
