    97 Trans Am Shutting Down

    I Have a 97 Trans Am with the LT1 350 in it and it shuts down on me just driving down the road and will not restart right away I have to leave it sit.... It acts like the anti theft has kicked in it will just sit there and crank over I have all lights and power to everything except the tach does not move at all when turning it over if anyone has any ideas please let me know

    I bet it's your optispark. The optical sensor is probably toast.

    Probably not the antitheft. That would not allow the vehicle to turn over at all if it was messed up.

    Check your ground and Battery terminals. I had that happen and it was a loose ground cable on the battery.
