Question about 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
2 Weeks ago while driving I stopped at a stop sign and the car just died out on me however the radio and cd player stayed on. I immediatly thru the gear in park turned the key and started the car back up. I thought nothing of it really because the check engine light didnt come on. I drove 5 miles up the road an it did it again while in traffic I repeated the same process and the car started back up. I don't think its an electric problem my best guess is that it's fuel related but hey I'm no mechanic. I just know that its been like this for the last 2 weeks everytime I try to operate the vehicle.
My vehicle is a 1996 chevy caprice sedan 95k miles
Trying to get some advice though
Thanks in advance
You might want to try a new fuel filter, if its been a while sense its had a new one, when they start to plug it will act like that. You may also want to chk. the fuel pressure to see if the pump is getting weak, pumps going bad are a common problem on G.M. cars and trucks. but don't loose sight that it could be electrical, with todays cars anything is possible, but sense the light did not come on leads me to believe its the fuel thing.

Could be a fuel problem , but try this first. When coming to a stop or light, either put transmission in neutral or with two feet brake & hold the gas alittle. The reason for this is maybe your idle speed is too low , very common problem on these engines with 75k plus miles. The idle air passages can get clogged up with carbon & lower the idle speed. Could also be a sticking egr valve causing a vacuum leak that will let the engine run fine , but stall at idle speed.
