    i also have the same problem. i can put my car in reverse on a hot day and it will do the same thing if you hold the brake and press the gas it will pulse up and down then stall. it will also cut out while driving down the road. i have changed the coils and ignition control module no help i also have wrapped the fuel lines in header wrap thinking the fuel was vapor locking. so we will see what happens

I have a 2000 chevy malibu that dies out while driving. I ve had major repair work for the first time in 8 years since i replace the engine due to overheating. Those major repairs included a cat job, both manifolds upper and downer, bank sensor, fuel filter, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets. I have no code showing on gages. I need other suggestions

Check the tps sensor could be the problem. because it causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cut off, hesatation on take off, surge while crusing down highway.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down

either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

2000 discovery 2 land rover for "4 0l" runs for a half hour the wont start seams like it is starved of fuel whats wrong with it


Check the catalytic converters. Pull the O2 sensor between the engine an cat. If it runs. Replace the catalytic converter/s. Fuel filters can clog up, but they give signs as struggling to keep up at higher speeds. Has pressure, just no volume. The will go forever, say at 55 MPH, but try doing 60 MPH and the engine cuts out or stalls a bit.

Hi, I had the same problem. For my malibu (2000) it was a faulty ignition switch. I replaced it and the instrument panel works fine.

Anti theft system on my 2000 malibu goes off when driving


Its your ignition switch. Its not recognizing when you turn it to the start position. The little terminals inside the switch get burned and wear down. When mine went out, the whole power to the dash would flicker, even cut out when driving. I actually wired my system to 1 toggle switch for on and off, I kept the anti theft wires attached to the switch. I also have a starter switch, if I fail to turn the key like I'm trying to start the car, the theft light comes on and the car dies right after starting.
