Engine quit while driving- added gas - turns over but won't start

Driving along normal about 30 MPH when engine stalled. Gas gauge is whacky so thought out of gas. Added about 1.5 gallons and still won't start. Turns over but no vroom! Took out 2 spark plugs and they seemed damp but not really wet with gas,

could be the TPS throttle positioning sensor. Could be a bad coil as well. Do you have good power at acceleration? Does it idle along after 30 well?

Died while driving down the highway then won't start? We were going about 70 and it just died. I will turn over but not start. Any help would be great.


My first thought, is the fuel pump quit

That is where you start, or a repair shop should start

I do not like going anywhere near 70 mph for that reason,
& I'am getting too old to enjoy speed & spend too
much time making love to vehicles, to put them under
any load at high speeds or uphills

Engine quit when stopped at stop light. Acted as if it was choking then died. Tried restarting. Turns over strong, no start. Thought maybe no gas. Added gas after about 30 minutes. Started first try....


Sounds like the fuel pump is going out. Replace the filter first, as it's only $10. If that doesn't fix it, then it's probably the pump, which is $250.

1995 pontiac bonneville stalls


I just went through lots of troubleshooting and expense on my 1996. Whenever I would lift my foot off the accelerator and was below about 30 mph, the rpm's would starts jumping around and sometimes it would stall. If I gave it a little gas (accelerator), I could sometimes keep it running. It also backfired once in a while. Starts right back up. Also, if I let it idle while in part, it would die after 1-2 minutes.

I ended up finding a hole in the fuel regulator. About a ~$70 part if you get an AC Delco, but very simple to change.

Vam stalling


there are too many reasons...

it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...

you need two things for the engine to run,

1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,

with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...

i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....
