Question about 1994 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Electrical system Recently, when I was driving on my local highway going up a moderate grade, the engine just quit. I pulled over and checked the battery connections, which were good and tried to start it. It fired right up, and ran normally for the next 8 miles or so, until Igot home.

The Distributor magnets in those are a big problem that has been giving people problems for years. they engine gets hot and the distributor fails and shuts off the spark. Once it cools for a bit it will start again and go for a while

I have a 1999 dodge ceruis. I quit running going down the highway at 70 mph. It was very low of oil. Do the have a ciser shut down system


You are fortunate that the engine still cranks. If it overheated when it shut down it is possible that some of the electrical components may have been burned out.

And if you did permanent damage it is possible that now the engine is not cranking fast enough to start.

Good luck.

Sounds like a week fuel pump have the pressure checked at a local repair shop. Also if it has a lot of miles on it the catalytic converter could be stopped up also have the local shop check it out it is real easy to check.

it sounds like your alternator is going out to me. you can go to your local autozone and have it checked. Also if your check engine light is on they will check for codes for free that will tell you the problem.
