Solenoid has two bolts connected to fenderwall, cleaned both, if
bolts are loose, get a bigger bolt that fastened it to wall that is
your ground. Tigthen cable from solenoid side to starter side underneath. Check wire from solenoid connected to
ignition coil. (you said motor runs a while then dies) If all seem
connected properly, have ignition coil check at a parts store.
All that I listed are free, (coil has fine wire internally that has a cut) that could cause the car to quit running. I hope this will help. Goodluck!
