Default 1992 Bonneville Starting Problem

It Is An SSE

The Car Turns Over But Will Not Stay Running It Will Eventually Start And Run Perfectly But It'* Got A New Starter A New Alt.

It Sat Over Winter And It Started Just Fine For Two Days About 10 Times In A Row
But It Is Messing Up Again

The Gauges Will Often Blink And Flash And Act Eractically I Don't Know What Could Be Causing This And Neither Do Local Mechanics

Check for spark at each of the three front cylinders.
Check the fuel pressure.
Have you checked for codes?

give some hard data, not just "seems fine"

what is your fuel pressure at idle, WOT and after shutting down?

you have checked for codes?

It Shows No Codes

Like It Sat For a Few Days And It Fired Up First Time I Let It Idle For A Few Minutes
And I Went Out There Like A Half Hour Later And It Took A Few Tries To Get It To Run

Tell me how you are checking the fuel pressure. Your numbers are double what they are normally.

Your post are frustrating to ready, please don't capitalize each word.
