Check your fuel pressure. 60lbs for the v6 and about 40 for the 4 cyl. You may be getting fuel but a clogged filter will hold it up enough to cause it to stall.

Presuming the fluid level is full,it is quite common for a broken reverse sun shell to give the symptoms you are experiencing,as well as some other areas that could also give similar symptoms such as burnt clutch packs,or the torque convertor going bad,and eventually the vehicle will stop pulling altogether.If the fluid is full,the problem is pretty much going to require trans removal and repair.Further diagnostic would include installing a mechanical oil pressure gauge onto the transmission to monitor main line pressure and see what it's doing while the trans is acting up and not pulling,and this does require a gauge capable of handling 300 psi.Also pull diagnostic trouble codes from the vehicle computer (PCM).Good luck.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu 2.2 driving 60 mph shut down

either you have a fuel pump that went out, or your fuel pump relay went. These fuel pumps last around 100,000 miles, so if you're way under that, it's more than likely the relay, if you're close to that, it could be either.

SOURCE: security light was coming on

When ever the security light comes on, it only means one thing. The PASSLOCK anti theft in your vehicle is not communicating properly with itself. It sounds confusing, but its really simple.

Your key has a trasnponder (radio waves) in it. So not only must the key be "cut" correctly to turn the the ignition like every other key, but it must also send the correct radio signal to the ignition. This signal is then sent from the ignition/lock cylinder to the TDM (theft deterrent module) which in turn activates the starter and injectors. Which then allows your to start your vehicle or remain running.

The system is a great idea, because without the actual transponder key near the ignition, you can't even hotwire the vehicle. The problem is. Passlock has about a 5-7 year lifespan. Costs anywhere from $350-$700 + labor to fix, and is gaurenteed to fail again on you down the line. Diagnosing which part of the system is not working is next to impossible yourself, and many people end up throwing vehicles away because of this.

The good news is, when this happened to me, i found some ways to beat this system. Check out this link. Im sure you will find some sort of help on it. It gives you a rundown of symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions to the problem. Good luck and i hope this helps you.

Fuel pump keeps priming. wont shut off


Pump still runs because hasn't started and is in cold start mode. Get power to the coil to get it running first, then see if the pump shuts down when switch is off.

got spark?
test fuel work? run for 3 seconds, sprayed into intake ports.
??????
if yes, it runs on test fuel and stalls then find out why you dont have fuel.
what makes you think you even have fuel?
if there is no spark then we check the ASD relay action
and work from there, ask.

My Samurai wont start . It is getting gas to the carb and spark to the plugs. Was driving down the road and just died. Getting power everywhere. Starter turns but the motor just wont fire up.


I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

I would look for spark, you may have an ignition problem. it would be a sensor that goes into your distributor, the plug should be a round one with i believe 4 wires.
