Could be just about anything, but given that I had the same symptoms that turned out to the fuel pump, I would check that if you haven't already. Mine would run fine for a while, particularly when it was cold, and tested fine at the shop, but after a while under load, it turned out the pressure would suddenly drop to about 15 pounds. A real pain to diagnose, since when it was in the shop it wasn't under load, so it tested OK.

My 1998 chevy blazer died going down the highway, what is wrong?


Multiple possibilities. Will start with easiest/cheapest. You don't mention check engine light (that would give codes), so I'll go with the same issue we've had with newer Blazers. That would be the ECM in the distributor. When ours started going bad, it would cut-off intermittently. Well one day the intermittent was terminal. Anew ECM, for the 2.8 V6 (1987) is approx 45.00. You would have to price it for your vehicle based on year and engine size. The worst case scenario is loss of timing gear. (That happened on our 67 Buick with 300 V8). Another thought is what happened to a friend. He's putzing on down the highway when his 88 Pontiac Grand Am simply quit. His computer had bit the big one. Those are the only things that come to mind, other than running out of gas or your alternator had quit charging your battery and the battery finally lost enough power to spark the plugs.

Have f350 04. About a month ago while driving in town, it cut out blew black smoke, pulled over to side of road waited a few minutes all was well. Now at any given time it will cut out, not idle up or die....


Could be a problem with your high pressure oil system that fires the injectors. As your oil heats up it gets thinner and less oil pressure is available to fire the injectors. Black smoke is a sign of over fueling. Is it chipped? If so remove the programmer and see if the problem goes away.

Truck cuts off going down the highway


Starter would not have anything to do with the engine once it's started & running. Can you give more description, as in shakes all the time, or only after driving a while? When was last tune-up as in plugs & wires done?

CAR DIED ON HIGHWAY 3 WEEKS AGO GOING 55 MPH .


A lot of things could cause it. The codes need to be pulled first. Most likely the MASS AIR FLOW METER is at fault, but without the codes it's just a guess.
