It couldn't hurt to go to walmart or an autoparts store and buy a bottle of seafoam and follow the directions add it to the fuel tank.

Maybe a problem with fuel injection system. High pressure fuel pump, clogged injectors,...?

Quite possible you have a bad ignition coil. As coil heats up it breaks down and will not return to normal till it cools down. Check for spark the next time this happens. If spark is weak or not there, it warrants testing or replacement.

SOURCE: i have a 1999 buick regal ls dying.

I found the problem. It was the crank position sensor. There was also a cracked vacuum hose connecting to the diaphragm on the fuel rail. Replaced both and my 92 Buick no longer dies. For the guy who's Buick was dying when using the turn signals - replace the crank position sensor. One of my symptoms of my Buick dying was when I used my turn signals. Use of turn signals places a varying load on the electrical system which messes up the crank posistion sensor if it is going bad.

Crank sensor has to be bad,or the ignition module.Remove the ignition module and have it checked at the parts store.If it checks bad,replace it,if it checks good replace the cranksensor.The cam sensor,cranksesor,and the control module control injector pulse,and coil spark.I would point more to the ignition module.But I have known the crankshaft sensor to do this also.I hope this was helpful,if so,let us know,thanks,and good luck.

Faulty Fuel pump will do it or breather pipe on fuel tank not breathing.
Coil overheating and braking down when hot ..when cools down away it goes again????
it does sound that its due to overheating BUT a another alternator or distributor wasent needed as nither would give you the problem..So check all above and let me know how you get on Ron

2002 Chevy Tahoe. Around 3 years ago the 1st


If a vehicle shuts off while driving down the road. then restarts after about 10 minutes, its a bad crank sensor or the wiring to the sensor. A check engine light may not turn on. If the light is on. You can take it to any auto parts store to have the code read by a scanner for free. Auto-zone, Advanced ETC. Its worth a try! But first check the fuel pump relay, It may be getting hot and shutting down pump. Try swapping a relay of the same type, if it is ok, thats the problem. Hope this helps!

Truck engine shuts down while driving. Sometimes it just hesitates and comes back sometimes it dies.

1996 Tahoe 4x4 5.7 Vortec dies when I turn the steering wheel periodically, when I start up and pull into the street, then will start up again and then dies, or if I get gas, and pull out and turn wheel it...


The 1990's chevy trucks(all of them) had fuel pump and grounding problems:

1. Check the fuel pump ground strap next to the gas tank as it could be broken from the connector or just loose.

2. Have a fuel pressure test done on the fuel lines at the engine top. (Note: if there isn't enough fuel pressure, replace the fuel pump.)

1998 Chevrolet C3500 dies randomly when driving down the road - uphill, downhill or flat surfaces. Typically doesn't happen when it's cold. Sometimes it starts back up and sometimes it doesn&#


my younger brothers' truck did the same thing and there was a relay up under the dashboard that would get hot and shut of(kind of a circuit breaker unit) most of the operating systems will flash at you when only battery voltage is available which explains the lights coming on..these newer trucks also have a performance chip in the system that will act up when it gets warm also..replace this and you may be ok..let me know what happens also.. good luck.

Might be your fuel pressure regulator.. also your car might be vapor locked.Next time it shuts off loosen your gas cap... If you hear it sucking in air... that's your problem...or your catalytic converter is clogging up...check the sensors on the pipes..If there bad it tells your car it needs more gas when it really don't...you will smell gas

Car dies going down the road


First thing i would check would be the fuel filter. Sometimes, when they first start to give problems, there is enough gas to keep them idling or driving around town, but when you get on the highway they starve for fuel.
