I have a 94 impala SS with a rebuilt engine at 108000 and now I'm at 136000. I ok recently I just put on a new water pump, distrubutor and temp sensor. I drove 400 miles from DC to Columbus, Oh without a problem. Once I got here one day my car cut off while I was doing 40. I pulled over and it restarted without incident. Later it cut off again I had to restart it 3 times just you get it off the street. When I restarted it I would run for a second then just die. I thought it had low oil so I put some in let it cool then it started and it got me home. I check the throttle body for obstructions... nothing. I checked the vacuum hose... nothing. I thought it may be my fuel pump but it doesn't seem to be the problem. When I start it I hear a motor winding but engine it won't turn over and if it does it'll cut off either smoothly or violently. I took it to a mechanic he said it was my tps and my IAC. I went to the junkyard and found one of each from a roadmaster. I put it on started her up it sounded great for about 15 seconds then it cut off. I'm at a total lost. Then I thought it might be the idle air control valves so I bought those and installed them. Now its got like no power when it finally does start it like takes a lot of gas to do anything. Help me brothers.:confused:

I just started it this evening and it needs gas to get it going then it idles high and both cooling fans cut on and stay on. What does that mean?

Check fuel pressure. Just because you hear the pump does not mean it is providing the pressure and/or volume of fuel needed. A bad TPS will usually turn on the CEL.
