I could be driving down the road doing 60 and it will stall and go from 60 right to 0. with no check engine light i've had it to dofferent shops and they tell me the only thing i can do is just keep pouring momey in parts into it and just hope the problem stops. i need a specific answer. it jerks when i'm driving down the road because it's trying to stall and it catches itself, makes absolutely no noises before it stalls either.

    Do you have any codes? Just because you don't have an engine light doesn't always mean you don't have stored codes.

Had this problem on my 98 chevy blazer, turned out to be a bad connection to the coil, not the one from the distributor. It was the one from the wiring harness. try wiggling the wires while it is on and if it stalls all you have to do is unplug the connector and get in there with a pick type tool and make the connection tighter. or do like i did and pop each wire out and fix it that way.
If this one not it, then try wiggling other wires, you might get lucky!

Sounds to me to be a ground issue. I don't know how much of a machanic you are, but i think its time to take the bull by the horns and maybe fix it yourself. What you need to do, and you may get alittle dirty in the process and it might take a while is find every ground wire and strap( and hot wires too) check to see if there broke, loose, dirty whatever, start at the back around gas tank and work yourself forward. If you half to go to the dealers parts dept. and get a diagram of all the ground straps and ground wires for your blazer they will print you one out. Just sounds to me they want to take your money and not fix the problem.

My 2012 Smart For Two has starting randomly stalling as if key was turned off. It starts back up ok, but did it to me today driving down the road at 60 mph. Any ideas as to the problem?


I found when I added a bunch of keys to my keyring, sometimes when cornering in a fun manner, the pile of keys would pull the key out of the run position... rather alarming... does just what you are describing.

Might need to replace the key lock mechanism if super loose...

My Jimmy will be running and just die.even going down the road at 60 or 50 mph but will start back up.sometimes it takes a couple times cranking it over but sometimes it will start right away


Could be anyone of a number of thing's , sensors , ignition module , engine computer , fuel pump going bad etc.... Do you want to just start replacing parts ? Your best is have the vehicle diagnosed at a qualified repair shop . Or there are videos on youtube on testing engine sensors , fuel pump etc.... A crankshaft position sensor could be a likely suspect . Diagnosing Intermittent Stall Concerns

Pontiac grand am stalling


A lot of possible causes - have you checked for trouble codes (DTCs)? If no codes, given the age it could be in the fuel delivery system (for example, fuel pump stopping either due to an intermittent electrical problem at the ignition switch or in the wiring such as corroded connectors).

Srs light, crazy odometer then no read outs, engine stalls won't start


Check the battery and alternator wiring connections. Also, check the alternator belt. If it is missing or has no tension, the belt tensioner may be broken. The thumping seems to imply a catastrophic mechanical failure or a small explosion affecting the electrical system, but it may have been unburned fuel igniting in the catalytic converter due to a problem with the engine computer (perhaps it wasn't working right due to the electrical problem).

While driving down road with truck in 2H the 4x4 light flashes I had a blow out two days ago and my two front tires are different right now one is a 245/60/16 and the other is a 235/60/16 while my rear...


as far as I understand the 235, 245 and 255 are only have some thing to do with the width of the tires. so there is no different in the diameter of the tire size.
have your car to a shop to check for a code, because 4x4 is some time expensive to fix.

Driving down the road my truck stalls and the oil


First you must find the engine oil pressure sensor, remove the sensor and repalce it with a gauge. Run the engine until hot and record the reading if the reading is between12 and 25 PSI replace the sensor, if the pressure continually drops as the engine warms up then you have a major issue, meaning there is serious engine wear and a rebuild is nesassary.
