FYI., our 89 SSE was doing this a couple months ago. Middle of nowhere, no warning, it would just die & not restart. Wait 10 minutes, or 1/2 hour, go back & it would start right up.
Replaced the crank sensor & hasn't done it since.
You could see where the crank sensor had physically been rubbing on the pulley.
They should be set with a special tool, not really a home job.
