Do basic testing. When in failed mode, check for spark. I suspect ignition module or coil, as these parts fail when hot and when you turn off running engine it gets hotter before it cools. Hard to diagnose because when you remove module to test, by the time you get to a parts store to test it's really cool again. Make them run test three times and tap with a pencil as you test.

Sutting hood and die, sounds to me like you have a loose wire somewhere up front which reacted to the hood created viabration. A critical wire. A very close inspection in the dark with a new led flashlight may help you find a loose or bad connection. Double check the battery connections, the water (distilled) in the battery. The charging system. If you can get to an auto parts store they may check your charging system and the battery. And check the error codes, which may point to the loose connection. If there is corrosion on the battery terminals, you need to scrape to bright metal (lead). Electrical connections that are corroded need to be cleaned an scraped to bright metal, usually brass. Bad connections cause unusual kinds of behavior.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado stopped running on highway, would not restart. Had it picked up the next day, after charging battery, started back up. Drove it 15 miles stopped again, would not restart. Started...


Died on freeway and would not restart ? When you turned the key what happened ? Did the starter engage and spin the engine ? Or nothing happened . Why did you charge the battery ? Did you drain it trying to start it or it drained when driving the vehicle an it killed it ? Before replacing parts did you have it diagnosed or did you just replace parts ?

96 Benz ran out of gas other day, got it filled up & drove home (20 miles). Next day drove about 40 miles, left car running in park for about 15 min, when I left car was stalling like it was running o


You never leave a car running, as it will
overheat the Exhaust Converter
When you run out of fuel, you sometimes
ruin the Fuel Pump
It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds
Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...


Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949
