2002 Chevy Tahoe sputters and stalls out while driving.....

2002 Chevy Tahoe sputters like it's not getting gas and stalls out while driving. It usually starts back up after a few min. Mostly only does this when it's hot out. Can anyone help me?

Fuel filter. Timing/timing chain. Idle air control valve. Idle sensor. Vacuum leak. Probably one of the above, but the filter is cheapest place to start. Change your air filter too, if you haven't for a while.

Hello , does the vehical stall out after its been driving a while and the engine has reached operating temp? It may be what's called " vapor" lock. This is where the fuel is burned or evaporated in the fuel lines and the result is not enough fuel is routed to the injector system. Or you have a failing fuel psi regulator too. Thank you , Quinn

Have a mechanic check the wiring to the fuel pump and test the fuel pump itself and also test the ECM and COILS

Sputters after driving a few minutes, tries to stall out.


1st move is to ck the fuel PSI & emissions. Possible cooling system cause.Scan computer & check sensor readings & the emissions readings are the first moves. Check spark plugs, ignition spark etc. Good luck

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio


It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

Chevy Tahoe sputters than dies


i would first try to replace the fuel filter.usually there filter accumalates debris in the gas tank especially if you you ru the tank close to empty.filter location needs to be traced from the tank toward the motor.you will see a cylinder inline with a strap.part usually runs around 20.00. also when you initally turn the key before start you will hear a hum for about 2 sec. this is the fuel pump pushing the fuel up to motor.so if you hear this pump is working.
