Car has low milliage.should run great.please help.

(1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera)
in Nevada, MO on January 16, 2011
My car runs great when first started. When it idles down however,it idles slow and rough and then suddenly dies.Then it refuses to start until it sits for a period of time. It is a nice car to look at, but that all I can do for now until I pin point the problem.From my experience,it seems to be a sensor. It cuts off suddenly.Please help.

I think first of fuel problems. If the fuel filter has not been replaced in recent memory, replace it as a matter of course. What pours out of an old fuel filter is often revealing, providing good info for a diagnosis.
If that doesn't solve your problem, have the fuel pressure checked. The fuel pump could be failing. You didn't say whether the check engine light is on or not. If it's on, there are trouble codes stored in the computer which would help a technician diagnose your problem.
