1991 Buick Regal Question: why does my car keep dying?

 

Question

Visitor, 3.1L V6, Linden, MI, July 16, 2010, 09:54

my car would run just fine for a few minutes then start to die out, then would die completely. id have to sit there for awhile befor i could even start it again.this happened for a few weeks and now the car wont even stay on for more then a few seconds. i was thinking that it could be the ignition temperature sensor but i dont know where it is to replace it.if anyone has any idea what could be wrong or know where that sensor is it would be very much appreciated!

    mine has the same problem. drives for a little while and then overheats and shuts off. Took it o a garage for diagnosis, i am fixing it myself, and found out that one of the 2 temperature sensors are out. I would go ahead and assume the same for you as well. safe bet is to go ahead and replace both because they are not awfully expensive
