Chevrolet Cavalier 2004 quits running while driving down the highway.


need to check fuel pressure, not just listen for pump to run, also check reading on coolant temp sensor, but sounds like fuel pump /filter issue. just because you hear pump run doesnt mean its putting our right amount of pressure. also check for plugged catylic convertor

could be its failing to hold and pump the required pressure the motor needs to keep it running smoothly, but if you check this link, http://www.aa1car.com/library/2005/us80530.htm and go down to the part about your engine just stalls while driving, it tells you about the crank pos sensor and the ignition itself

While the key is in the last position before the start or during starting, check if you are getting fuel to the fuel line to the engine. If there is none then the fuel pump fuse or relay may have gone bad or the fuel pump itself.

Bad fuel pump diagnosis? small flutter in engine got worse within 20 min of driving and had to stop


If the engine wants to stall as you accelerate,and sometimes cuts out at highway speeds,...Its the fuel pump,If it misses at idle,and while driving,its the fuel filter,Have the fuel presure checked,or change the fuel filter,when you change the fuel pump,also ghange the fuel filter.

97 GMC diesel just quit while driving on highway


First thing on a diesel problem such as yours, would be FUEL FILTER. On GM diesels a clogged filter affects a diesel even more than on a gas engine. NOW if the filter doesn't cure your problems, I'm afraid tio say the injection pump could be at fault, and thats another story. Hope this helps
