Engine Cuts out while driving

My truck cuts out like it is running out of gas while I am driving it. It only does it for a couple of seconds, then it is fine and it only does it every now and then.

The first and easiest without getting to complicated is to check the coil wire at the coil they tend to corrode away causing imtermittant misfire and eventally no spark at all.

Engine cuts out


Adrian, try changing the fuel filter first and see if that does anything.
OR you might have got some bad gas somewhere with some water in it. Get some "Dry gas" at an auto parts store and add a couple bottles to the gas tank. I'd try this before you bring it to a mechanic.

Engine cuts out


If it does this only when the engine is at operating temperature it may be vapor lock. Your gasoline becomes hot and becomes vapor and the fuel injectors don't meter vapor. Check your fuel pump pressure, if is low it doesn't get a chance to circulate back to the gas tank like it should. I hope this aims you into the right direction.

When driving suddenly the engine cuts out.


I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

2001 Chevy Silverado will start up but cuts off after seconds


Could be either one of these. Or both. Check to see if you hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to ON. If you can't hear anything , the pump is bad . Or going bad if you don't hear it all the time when your key bis in the ON position.
