    yes dreamweaver, sometimes I dont even get a block away and when it shifts to drive; it dies while going down the road.

    One friend was telling me that the ignition control module might be going bad. I'm just tired of putting money into parts and then that isn't what it was in the first place.



    thanks;

    Richard

    Does it shut off while driving? Does it shut off when you put it in drive after lets say a whole day of not driving it. I have answers but need more info. Thanks dreamweaver102205@yahoo.com

Scrappy I hope you fixed your problemssince last post. Sorry to be gone for soooo long. Have you check your fuel tank? I had an old 1963 chevy that over the coarse of years that filled the bottom of the tank with dirt and what have you. It would run for 15-20 minutes and shut off. After it sat for about 10 minutes it would settle back to the bottom and I could drive again for 10=15 minutes. It drove me crazyuntil I had a radiator shop vat the fuel tank. Let me know if you fixed the problem....it has been a month since I last logged on....sorry.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

2001 Buick Regal cuts off while driving at times also won't start


The ignition switch on that model is rated @ 50amps. When I was driving my 2001 Regal LS (at 120,000 miles) and used the turn signal, the engine would die, when I switched the turn signal off, the engine ran. So I replaced the ignition switch, and all is well.

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason


i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick

Anti theft light comes on when driving


no cutoff switch!! try this turn key to on, do not start car. let sit for about 30 minutes, after 30 minutes, turn key off. wait 15 seconds and try to start car. this should reset anti theft system.
