Please check the firing and fuel settings. It is possible that the engine will fire **** will not hold on as the firing stops or that the fuel stops. So this needs a closer inspection and investigation.
Check the firing in the plugs, check the HT intensity. Make sure there are no error codes for loss of firing. Secondly check the fuel, fuel filter and fuel pump. If there is dirt/water in fuel or a possible fault in fuel delivery.
Finally check the electronics/ ECM for any failure of unit or sensors,

In this car there is a chiped key that sends a signal to the pcm, and if its not there you only get a few seconds of run time, there are bypass modules to fix this problem permenantly, much cheaper than getting a bunch of new electronics installed

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour


If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire. I have no idea whats wrong with it. Several months ago it started acting up; if I accelerate too much, the engine shuts off, car dies.also, I notice it starts to five out...


have you checked your fuel pump and relays for fuel system? AND , have you had the obd codes run yet? That sounds like the places to start_fuel system/delivery. Oxygen sensorswould be my next shot. maybe one wasnt replaced or came loose during new cat install. have them double chk that for you.

My car is barely starting (tuning over). each time I try it gets even worse. It feels like the battery is low but nothing was left on. 2006 Nissan Pathfinder - same problem, started like a champ 2 days...


Check all your connections, make sure they are all clean & tight. Do you have a multimeter available for a voltage check at battery, before & after starting?
