Question Running Problems

hi guys and gals, new to the community, not sure if i can add any great advice right now but im hyped up about this car, I've recently purchased a 1992 vehicle for 90 dollars and thought i was in a world of problems, then after tinkering around, this vehicle has been surprisingly well, style concept and power. love it and look forward to becoming closer to this community.
I 'm from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. and wanted to know why my vhecle 92 bonneville SSEI works great for like 20 mins and then the power to the engine seems to loose every thing......engines running.......electrical is fine........its like the engines taking a break and will only kick in gear after stopping and turning the car off wait like 20 seconds then restart. what do you bonneville lovers think?

Sounds like a fuel pressure problem to me. Test the pressure and see if it drops off over time. If so, change the fuel filter and see if that corrects the problem.

Also, Welcome to the Bonneville forum.

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.
