    Question 97sltx 1050 stops running and then restarts

    I was given a 97 sltx 1050 that has been in storage for approximately 2 years. It cranks and runs ok, but will just stop running for no reason when at normal cruise speed. It restarts easily right after. I have new gas, battery and plugs. It follows no pattern. What the heck is wrong and how can i trouble shoot?

    Will it start right back up,or do you have to crank it a little bit? If it starts right back up,I'd be looking for a bad ground wire.Check and make sure the battery ground wire to the eng.is good and clean.

    It does most of the time. I will start with a good cleaning of the battery connections and cables this weekend.

    Also check the gas lines...they are old and might have weak/soft spots in them causing a colapse in the line...be sure to look for any tight bends or kinks in the lines as well.

    I would also check the fuel tank venting system.
