Your vehicle should be displaying a check engine light. if so hook an obd2 scan tool to the service port and scan the code(some parts stores will let you use a scan tool if the vehicle is in thier parking lot) if no trouble code is present the most likely candidates are a faulty idle air control valve, clogged fuel filter or faulty pressure regulator. the vehicle could simply be in dire need of a tune up. have a burnt through plug wire etc... check some of the basic and ill keep an eye on this post and get back to you as you work through it. i always recomend purchasing a haynes of chilton repair manual. these manuals have troubleshooting step by step directions and provide alot of valuable information. and the only cost about 15 bucks

SOURCE: car shuts off while driving


Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but it could be worth a try.
My 2001 turbo had a similar problem when it was low on oil.
The oil light never came on, but it was low enough to cause it to stall.
Seems there has to be enough oil circulating on the camshaft (I think they told me the camshaft, now it has been so long that I am not positive).
Either way, a quart and a half of oil solved my stalling problem.
And the problem got bad enough before I had it towed to the VW shop that it wouldn't start, very much like it had a dead battery or an electrical (starter/ignition) problem, but i still had plenty of power for horn, lights, radio, etc.

Hope this helps!

1999 astro/4.3L/starts cold /runs 10-15 min. then dies will not start hot new coil/clean filter/pump 2 yrs old installed new/battery shows 14 amps when running/ won t crank when hot either/...

car shuts off when it gets to normal operating range. it takes 10-15 minutes to reach normal range. causes: low coolant, failing coolant tempurature sensor, air in water pump, check the coolant temp. sensor. if it is bad it will send wrong info to engine when hot, and shut it down. ITS WORTH A TRY!! good-day!

After a half hour drive my car shuts down turns right back one ,,but will keep shutting off, feels like its not getting gas, already change the fuel filter check the fuel pump presure is fine whats next

Possibly the coil module under the coil packs gets hot and shorts out because it's on the engine, ( dumb design). I have seen that happen many of times.

Last week my 1999 chevy shut off while it was running outside of my house... Tried replacing the coil & changing the battery & it still won't crank. The electric works fine but engine only makes...

Sounds like your starter is bad, the clicking is the starter solenoid, but the starter motor don't work, starter motor and solenoid, will come as one assembly, replace starter.

if it is a 2.2 L engine check the fuel injecters see if they are leaking or if you smell gas behind the valve cover,,,if not your next bet would be the coil pack coil; packs act up more when they are warm

.1 liter Chevy engine runs 15 to 30 minutes then will shut off.

Sounds like the coil. A bad coil will lose internal connection when it gets hot.

99 Silverado wont crank?

try checking for a shorted or open battery cable..maybe a bad connection somewhere..........check the main ground cable from the battery as well as the body ground.......(use a set of booster cables..put one end on the neg side if battery black or red.......put the same end that you put on the battery on a metal part of the complete a temporary ground the same with the body).....may be worth a shot..........
hope this helps...Good Luck!
