Q: Q: Starts and dies.

asked by on

I own a 1996 grand am gt 4door, started fine, went to play ball, and then started and died. So I tried it again, same thing. Waited a minute it started and I took it home. It drove perfectly fine. Got home shut it off. Tried to start it, it started and died immediately, keeps doing that. What is my issue, and how hard would it be to fix/cost?

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
