This is a tricky one. I would check the oil level and then the anti freeze. it sounds like the engine is over heating and the wrong oil will do that. but is can also be the anti freeze because their are little flow ports through out the engine and it can be that the ports in the engine are clogged with grim. if the ports are clogged then thiers no way for the engine to cool. and i do beleive that thier is a sensor in the engine that cuts the engine off when its is not recieving any anti freeze.

sometimes the sending unit in the tank can cause this type of problem usually because its shorting out thats why your display starts going nuts and your engine starts dying and yes pumping pedal does help keep it running sometimes but does not fix short in sending unit

I have a 05 Cavalier that keeps dieing while i'm driving. (no enigine power, electical system seems to work normal, dash lights, head lights, etc...) At first I thought it was the a/c putting to much drag...


Sounds like a fuel problem. you could try hooking a pressure gage up to your check valve on your fuel rail see if you are losing fuel pressure. maybe a fuel filter or something thats just one thing it could be out of a bunch of things something you may want to try. does is start bucking or anthing or just straight lose all power and die?

Car dies while driving


You need to replace the control module in the distributor. It shorts out when it gets hot, thus losing spark, then cools, and the spark returns (to the plugs).
