After running about 20 minutes my Seville will just shut down, almost like it running out
of gas. It will start right up and run another 10 - 15 minutes then do it again. Anyone
have any suggestions as to what is causing this?

any help would be appreciated
Thanks,
Ted

I've seen this happening because of clogged fuel filters, pump screens and other "dirt protection devices". If you have a chance to do that, check fuel pressure while this is happening. If it gets low most likely this is the problem. If not, then it's probably something else. Sure sounds like the filter or alike being the problem.

Because you say it starts back up quickly, I would suspect the pick up coil in the distributor or the distributor module. I've also seen the ground strap missing between the ignition coil and cap after a cap replacement, so verify its in place.

No such thing on an 84 Seville! All that's done thru the module and pick up coil within the distributor.
