92 Bonneville engine stops at speed

I have a 92 Bonneville with over 270,000 miles and today while driving at 65 MPH the engine just shut off. Lights and all other electricals still work. After setting for a few mintues on the side of the road it starts back up and I could drive it for a few miles nefore it shut off again. If it sets for awhile 30 minutes or so it can be driven over 50 miles with no problem.

No stumbling first? Just suddenly quits with no power loss first?

Computer chip? Blockage in fuel filter?

What type of fuel injection do you have?

Not sure what type of fuel injection. If it was the fuel filter being clogged/blocked why would setting for a few minutes allow it to start and stay running. Since this happened the other day I have been able to drive back and forth to work abount 15 miles each way with no problem.

What was the fuel level when this happened?
Have you added fuel since then?
