Question about 2002 Chevrolet Impala
1999 Regal will stall at any time without warning. Regardless of whether the engine is hot or cold, accelerating or braking. Car normally starts/runs fine immediately after it but now I had an instance where the engine did not turn over until about the the fifth try of starting up again. No engine codes show up it stalls. Lights/radio stay on when car stalls.
Something that may be related is at times the traction control acts up putting on numerous warning lights on the dash (check engine soon, anti-lock brakes, trac off, etc) but it's not clear if this intermittent problem is related to the car stalling randomly. Exact same problem with my Impala, usually stalls while decelerating or cruising about 35 mph. Checked NUMEROUS items, no luck!

SOURCE: Trac off light
try looking for a button that says trac or traction control. She may have addidently bumped it. If its an automatic it may be by the shifter. or dash or steering column.

I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. The number of codes that can turn the light on number in the hundreds. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.
