I solved the same problem by changing the PCM module, which is the car's on board computer. Took me about 15 minutes to change it. YOu can get refurbished PCM module on ebay for $225 or so. Lifetime warranty comes with it if you return the old unit to them with free shipping.

BE DRIVING ALONG AND OUT OF NOWHERE SHE SHUTS DOWN AND WONT START WITHOUT STARTING FLUID AND SHUTS RIGHT BACK DOWN GIVE IT A HOUR OR TWO FIRES UP LIKE NOTHING EVER HAPPENED 99 S-10 BLAIZER 4.3


Take a fuel pressure gauge for a ride --tied to wipers

See if your loosing fuel pressure when it quites ,or see if
that data is avail on scan tool

Some brands of pumps don't last long,so I heard & see from
other experts on here

I guess a relay for fuel pump could have a bad primary coil in it

Try switching them around-- to something else you don't need

My 99 chevy blazer 4x4 misses and shuts off some times back fires through the exhaust


Usually, an engine that backfires thru the exhaust is a sign of ignition problems.
Assuming you have the standard 4.3 V6, you should have a flat distributor cap and standard rotor.
I would start there.
The cap could be shorting out inside and making the coil fire the wrong plugs at the wrong time.
It could also be other issues with the distributor or the ign module.

I have a 1999 GMC Safari. Van will drive fine for


see when you say you step on it, and the vehicle stalls, it sounds as if it bein starved of fuel...you step on it, and therefore the demand is there, but not the supply. to prevent itself from over heating, the fuel pump shuts off...after a moment of cooling off, it fires right back up...get it checked at your mechanic...do the strainer on the bottom of the pump, and fuel filter as well...is it time for a tune up yet?

Van shuts off when I slow down at lights


Sounds like your serpentine belt driving the alternator and power steering units is too loose. If you haven't had it replaced, it may be time.

Ford 2003 Expedition starts then shuts down


The only idea I hbave is for you to buy a OBD II sensor code reader. Know half the time the codes are generic, BUT also if you go buy a Advance auto they will read the code for you for free. And that code is the correct answer to your problem. Just make sure if your truck loses the code when you cut it off, that you don't cut it off when you get to advance auto.
