Could be fuel filter, fuel pump, air filter, coil, spark plugs, plugged catalitic converter, injectors or a host of other things. Start with the simple things like air filter, see if its dirty, then fuel filter especially if it has not been changed for many miles. Check battery connections, ground wires from body to motor and ground wire from battery to motor and body

New air cleaner needed? That's the simple, cheap fix. Happened to my wife's Volvo once. Thought the EFI was toast and the air cleaner was caked with gunk. Maybe dirty injectors. Try some fuel additive to clean them.

If it is the EFI system, maybe something simple like idle control valve (happened on my newish Subaru), or one of the other sensors: TPS, O2, MAP/MAF, etc. It simply sounds like it is running too lean or rich at idle. Injectors could be bad too. Sounds like you need a different mechanic.

2000 Grand AM GT Shuts off while driving


What you should do is check for spark when the vehicle stalls.If you have no spark then you probably have a bad ignition module.The other thing is You didn`t mention if the check engine light is coming on.If it is then have the codes read.Even if it is not you should still check the codes.Sometimes the computer will have a code and the light will not come on.This could give you a clue as to what could be causing the engine to stall.You might also want to check your fuel pressure just to make sure it is good.The pressure should be 52 - 59 psi.Hope this helps.Good luck.

We were in a parking lot and the engine shut off. I pulled into a stall shut it off and restarted and it drove fine. No warning lights appeared


Sometimes a little water in the gas can cause vapour lock & stalling. Put a little methyl hydrate( clean flow) in the gas. Also never fill up when you see a tanker at the service station filling station storage tanks. This tends to stir any dirt & water up into the gas & you get their problem. Good luck!

Car stalls while driving, sometimes doesn't start,& tach on & off


Check the battery if the battery is dead replace battery. Also check the alternator - it is probably not charging the battery. If this is the problem the alternator will need to be replaced.
