Hi There, There are many reasons that may cause the car not to stay running such as faulty ignition components (i.e. ignition coil, module, spark plugs, etc.) or potentially a lack of consistent fuel pressure or dirty fuel injectors causing an uneven fuel spray pattern into the cylinders. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your Corvette.
