'87 Silverado,5.7, Shuts down while driving

Truck has new engine,but it will shut down sometimes while driving. It restarts right away but has a hard time restarting like the timing is too high. Adjusted timing and did not make a difference. It had the same problem with old motor too.

It sounds like you have a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump maybe weak. I would change the fuel filter first and see what happens. Or you are having a distributer problem with the coil. Also check for a wire grounding out around the engine.

Truck shuts off when going at slow speeds


Check the IAC VALVE,idle air control. It might be dirty and sticking,clean throttle body with intake cleaner make sure to spray in all openings in throttle body. If that doesn't work replace IAC VALVE. If you replace IAC VALVE make sure you clean opening good when IAC VALVE is out.

Engine shuts off while driving


I would suspect a faulty EGR valve, but is the check engine light on? If it is, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. That will narrow the search for the problem. Sure hope this helped.

Truck shuts off while driving


Well, if the truck is carburetored, the filter is located in the carb, where the fuel line connects. If its fuel injected, the filter is located under the truck, on the frame rail, between the tank and engine.

2001 dodge ram shuts off intermittently, restart ok no mil.


You are experiencing what is called a CCD Bus short in the instrument cluster circuit board. (chrysler calls it the "chrysler collision detection buss) it is how all of the controllers and modules communicate on that vehicle. Get a new one and you should have no problems, and used ones are a HUGE gamble. Other vehicles that are extremely bad for this are, caravans, neons, sebring coupe/conv, strates, and cirrus. It will also cause a no start condition that is EXTREMELY hard to catch.

Truck shuts off anfd restart right away, no trouble code.


First thing I'd check would be battery cables, at both ends for clean, good & tight. Does it ever do it while driving at highway speeds or just at slow speeds? Wet out, dry out?
