2003 Chevy suburban engine dies while driving

As I was driving down the Interstate my 2003 chevy suburban backfired a couple of times then just died. I had plenty of gas so that was ruled out. i pulled over and tried to start the vehicle again and it wouldnt even turn over. the battery gauge reads charged. i checked the belt to make sure it did not break, and it was still intact. what could be the problem??

    We had the truck towed to the chevy dealer nearby. I was on my way back to miami to drop my wife a daughter off back home. I live in NC and we were about 200 miles from miami... we had no other choice. Thank you for your help!!

I had to troubleshoot a problem similar to that this summer where the vehicle died and would not turn over.... the underlying issue is that it will not turn over... not that it died.... sorry to say the motor was seized... you may want to try and turn the motor over manually... if it doesn't turn over you have an answer to the problem.

You need to check the Ignition System. Plugs, Wires, Dist. Cap. If these are Ok, You Probably need to Check the Fuel Pump and Filter. Let me Know!

The reason your truck is shutting off is because one of your o2 censors is bad. had the same problem even got a diagnostic done ans showed no error.finally went to advance auto and asked someone who had the same problem. hope is works out

We have a 2003 chevy suburban 5.3 vortec it dies when warmed up


Sounds like either Air mass sensor, Air mass meter or finally the EGR valve this is the exhaust gas recycler I would say that is the fault when they start to go this is what they do until finally the car will barely move.

Also I would check all your air pipes for leaks make sure there is no rips or tears in the pipes, The car will drive fine like you say until you ease of the gas to a stop position it **** in to much air and kills the engine. Air faults are cheaper so look there first.

Hope this helps
