I had that problem as well, I don't want to be the one to give bad news...but I can tell you what was wrong with mine. The camshaft sensor went bad, timing belt broke, and it caused the valves to warp... All and all, I had to replace the engine as well as my transmission which started slipping prior to shutting down on me like yours. It was a tough decision, because the car was a 2000 Dodge Stratus and would it be worth it. I decided to go ahead and change the engine & tranny, I am happy, with minor problems and/or tune up issues. I hope that you dont have to change the engine, but my mechanic is a very good man and has never done me wrong. It really is not a solution, rather an example of what it could be.. I was just thankful to GOD to pull off the road safely because my kids were in the car as well......Best of luck

2002 Chevrolet Malibu oil light on & valves clattering

Check the oil level on the dip stick and make it correct. This engine should have a low oil shut down feature. Possible oil pump failure. With oil at correct level, restart engine. If the oil light does not go out with engine running, shut down immediately. Severe Internal rotating component bearing damage has already occurred. look for loose oil filter or hole in oil pan.

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.

When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

My 2005 infinity fx35 suddenly shuts off while I'm driving. Has a full tang of gas...check the oil and all fluids and everything is fine. Anyone know what it could be?

I would start with the battery connections. Make sure they are tightened down and clean of corrosion. More info would help. Does it start up right away or not?

Engine stalls

Some cars have a oil level sensor in the sump for people like you. The sensor tells the cpu to shut down the engine to prevent damage. Something like a low oil shut down on a small generator set

Low oil lights and engine shuts down

Give the unit a good shake. Possible that the float that sits in the oil sump is stuck. It sits on the oil and sends a shut down signal if the oil level is low. A sticky float will give this false signal.
