Hey Guys,

I have a 1990 Corvette Coupe (not the ZR1) and I have a problem I cant figure out. Whenever I start the car it turns over fine and runs until it warms up. As soon as the car warms up it shuts down like someone killed the ignition. I changed the gas, plugs, oil and it still is doing it. Any ideas!? confused

First I need to know does it show a code? You need to have your vehicle scanned for codes. If there is no codes the first thing I would check is the EGR to ensure they are not stuck in the open position. Second I would check o2 sensor. if good the I would check main fuel filter under the car on the underside on passenger side near exhaust and make sure not clogged. if not them only one thing air ildler motor on throttle body dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced.

Ignition module inside of distributor or the coil sitting on top could be the culprit.
