Engine dies unexpectedly sometimes while driving

I have a 2001 Pontiac Aztec that has a problem of sometimes the engine dies while driving down the road. Sometimes when going slow or sometimes at highway speeds. Totally sporatic. If i stop vehicle, it will restart after abit of cranking engine. Sometimes happens a few days in a row, or sometimes can go for weeks without any problems. I have heard possibly maybe bad camshaft or crankshaft sensor?

Hi,i read your problem,for my opinion,maybe camshaft or crankshaft are the possible causes,to make sure, you have to bring the unit to authorized workshop to avoid guessing which part are defective

How do the power steering hoses go on on a 2001 Pontiac Aztek and why is there no circular motion inside the pump


The only squared thing on the pump is the "plastic"
fluid tank... Everything else about the design & function
is "circular".

There is ABSOLUTELY circular "MOTION" inside the PUMP...
PLEASE NOTE... there is a giant pulley on the front..
and the design of the pump is all about rotational force of the hydraulic pump (right THROUGH the middle).

High pressure to the high pressure...
(with a possible cooler option in the middle)
Low pressure back to the reservoir

2001 gmc sierra stalls when I stop


When your stopped, that is usually closed throttle. I'd want to check and clean anything that has to do with idle air system, where applicable.
Sometimes with fuel gages, I do testing by using a couple of resistors representing full and empty. If your gage reacts properly, the problem should be the sending unit in the gas tank.

High idle in park pontiac 04 grand am


Do you have a place where they can check the engine for contamination? Mine had a similar problem it would die after slowing down at the junction, Ask your mechanic to clean the engine and also check the throttle sensor and it will be good as new.

Good luck

My 2001 dodge durango dies while driving down road


Could be the Idle Air Control on the throttle body. A simple, low cost fix. Most auto stores carry the part.

caroded ???? CORRODED ! Guessing is not how to do auto repair ,TESTING IS . Hooking up a scan tool and viewing engine data is . Electrical testing is . Voltage drop testing electrical circuits is . There are two many videos on youtube not to know how to test .

I would be looking at a crankshaft postion sensor , ignition module , engine sensors , not a couple of corroded wires under the dash .
