    sometimes it does, I had a bad corrosion problem with a bad battery and I am thinking that it might have messed with the positive wire that goes to the starter. When I replaced the battery I never replaced the wiring.

Why does my 2003 pontiac sunfire lose all power while driving


That can be the symptom of a bad Ignition Control Module, or also a bad crank position sensor. The ICM can be taken off and tested for free at any parts store. The crank sensor circuit can be tested on the car with a multi-meter. Also small motors (like a fuel pump motor) that are starting to fail can sometimes work until they get hot and then stop working until they cool down again.

Next time the car shuts down and won't restart, check for spark on a spark plug wire with the engine cranking over. If you have no spark, suspect the ignition control module or the crank position sensor. If you still have spark, but won't start, check if the fuel pump is putting gas up to the engine.

This can be caused by the fuel pump going out to. once you lose fuel into the intake it will automatically shut the car down instantly.
