Car dies

by Larry
(Hot Springs Village, AR)

1999 C5 corvette died after starting 3 times after I put it in gear. The I started it and revved it up a few times and it drove fine for about 5 miles. It died at 45 mph. I coasted in neutral to 30 mph and restarted it and it drove fine another 5 mile to home. In the garage it started 3 times and did not die. It has 55K miles and a interstate battery that is about 8-9 months old. What could be the problem?

Check for vacuum leak NEW

Check for vacuum leak, particularly to the EGR and fuel pressure regulator. There are youtube videos on how to do this. This is a maybe, first step, easy to do and doesn't cost .
