sounds like the fuel pump or gas filter

check the ignition system, my LT1 would start up/ run just fine till it heated up then it would run like sh*t although i dont think it ever killed it... check the computer for codes...

I am having the exact same problem. I have a 1990 camaro rs that is doing the same thing, it will start then as I am driving it the car dies. I have been reading the blogs on this topic and the two points I can find is the distributer and the fuel pump. Go figure gas and spark. Anyway trying to trouble shoot it I have found that when I put it in gear to relearn the system it will die immediately. Saves me from having to tow it home all the time. I am just getting into this issue, I am not a big blogger but I will check back in if I learn something. Tom_moody@sbcglobal.net
