It is either going to be a wiring problem bettween the voltage regulator and the battery or the car has what is called. Voltage regulator in electronics. In this case the regulator is in the computer and not the alternator. Changing the alternator will have no effect if this is the case.Many cars have this in the computer. You need a manual to find this out for sure.

SOURCE: engine stops driving along freeway, can be restarted

something else to watch for, not saying this is your problem, but our hy. Excel used to stop on the road for no reason......turned out to be the contacts in the ignition switch. It's a very cheaply made plasticy (is that a word?) switch and the contacts were loose and sloppy. Pulled switch apart and overhauled it and Bob's ya uncle

SOURCE: crank no start: has no spark and only has injector

Fuel pump, you have to have press in the rail to fire all injectors- she will run on ether but not good for her. Ck your pump and any related fuses,relays,wiring.

SOURCE: engine sputtered and died, starts back up and

That sounds more like lack of fuel pressure due to worn pump, plugged fuel filter, or defective fuel pressure regulator. The engine computer should be read with a rented scanner to determine the area of the trouble. Don't just replace parts until it runs--usually, a very expensive repair process. If the engine uses a rubber timing belt to the cams, the mileage is about right to change it (them) too (as a precaution). Hope this helps!

Sutting hood and die, sounds to me like you have a loose wire somewhere up front which reacted to the hood created viabration. A critical wire. A very close inspection in the dark with a new led flashlight may help you find a loose or bad connection. Double check the battery connections, the water (distilled) in the battery. The charging system. If you can get to an auto parts store they may check your charging system and the battery. And check the error codes, which may point to the loose connection. If there is corrosion on the battery terminals, you need to scrape to bright metal (lead). Electrical connections that are corroded need to be cleaned an scraped to bright metal, usually brass. Bad connections cause unusual kinds of behavior.

No engine light on? Sounds to me like the bumpy road may be knocking something loose. It would help to know if you have fuel pressure when the problem arises.

Car has been dying when i go about 10 miles

There are so many various problems with the newer Nalibu that it is hard to say what it could be. Go to WWW.ALLDATA.Com and on the bottom of the home page in the middle it says for Techs. Click on it and search for your vehicle and you will see the many tsb's(technical service bulletins) for your car. Choose the least expensive ones first. Good luck

Ran it out of gas,now wont start

Turn the key without starting the engine, you should hear the fuel pump engage. Do this a few times to prime the engine. If it still doesn't start, spray "starting fluid", available at parts store, into your throttle body. It should start now.
