A guess would be the engine temp sensor. if it was stuck thinking it was still cold when it got warmed up, the engines computer would dump too much gas in , start sputtering and kill the engine. http://www.freeautomechanic.com/ect-engine-coolant-temperature.html kickassladydragracer November 3, 2009 at 9:18 pm It could be a crank sensor and or the coil plate is bad. I had a pontiac that did the same thing and it was the coil plate and or the coil pack. Comments are closed.
