Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the engine scanned. During the diagnostic, it will list that trouble codes and by then you'll know the exact part to be replaced to resolve the problem.

Although in my own opinion, I'm suspecting a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor. If the MAF sensor is faulty you'll have vacuum supply irregularities which may cause the car to stall or an obvious lack of power.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

The parking stays on after engine is turned off.what could cause that<


on some cars there is a courtesy light that stays on for a while to iluminate you to your house door etc. this can be changed in the car settings. also if an indicator(trafficator) is switched when the engine is turned off a park light turns on on the side that was switched as a guide light when parking in a dangerous spot as a warning to other traffic. ensure indicators are off when swithcing off engine.

Does it gallop when you are sitting idle and the RMP gauge bounce up and down between 1000 and 1500? If so, clean the throttle body and see if that solves the problem. I had a similar problem with my 03 Yukon XL (same truck) and cleaning the throttle body fixed it.

Car died while driving


it could just be a sensor malfunctioning from possibly getting too hot. as everyone knows slow traffic sucks....well its hard on the car too because the car gets alot hotter in the engine bay due to lack of air flow.....heat like that can make sensors malfunction everyonce n awhile....i wouldnt worry bout it unless it happens again...which it shouldnt.
