can drive 3-4 miles when cold no prob. but any farther it starts to spudder and dies, will restart and drive a little ways and do all over again but if left an hour or two works fine for 3-4 miles again. no service light coming on, so can't get a code reading

    Sounds like a failing fuel pump to me. You need to test the fuel pressure. I'd recommend a qualified mechanic to do this safely and diagnosis should be easy if the pump is failing. It's old enough..http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=3942
