distance? My 1987 Oldsmobile Torornado has a chronic and potentially dangerous problem. It always starts easily but after going a short distance, rarely more than a mile or so, the engine totally quits (along with the entire electrical system). An experienced mechanic looked at the problem and declared that he did not have the answer. I can't determine whether it is a fuel, an electric, or an electronic problem but I'm not driving the short until I solve the problem. Thanking you in advance for your help.
