SOURCE: 2000 buick lesabre- was driving and engine stalled

I had a similar situation and after some research, I discovered it was doing what many referred to as "Phantom Stalling" It would only happen once in a while and when I wanted the mechanic to see it, it never happened for him.

Keep an eye every so often on your RPM gauge (beside the speedometer) and see if it cuts out completely and does not move when you speed up (shows 0 even though your still in in drive and moving). Mine would do that and after a few minutes the car would stall and I would have a hard time starting it back up.

What I found out was that my "Crankshaft sensor" had gone bad. I picked up a new one at AutoZone and had the mechanic replace it.

My car has not stalled since Ive had the sensor replaced and I found that when I was ideling, the idle was a lot smoother than befor.

Hope this helps you.

Check and clean the idle control solenoid and passages, check the throttle position sensor and perhaps the crank sensor. Don't buy anything without testing or you will be spending money on stuff you don't need.
If stumped, get a chiltons or haynes manual and go through the test procedures they outline. Any good shop does this and you should too!
If it tends to stall that tells me that the iac is possibly opening late (sticking) but that can also happen if it gets bad information from the control system. (where testing is important)

SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Intrepid with PO455 code and stalling.

A code 455 most likely one or more of the following has happened
a loose or bad gas cap
a non-conforming gas cap
other leaks or damage pieces in the evap system

Inspect the evap system for cracks or breaks in lines listen for vacume leaks or strong gas fume smell and fix all lines you find that are damaged ..I know you say you put a new gas cap but make sure it a conforming cap..Hope this helps

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stalls and engine lite comes on


that is called engine stalling
all car when the engine stalled, the braking assest (helper) goes
dead. (loss of engine vacuum is cause, and is normal in all stalls)
we had to learn this in driving school in 1960, due to stalls then
are COMMON as nails, but the brakes still work. and ONLY takes more pressure with your foot ,
top cause of all stalls (and in 1960) is not getting a tuneup
ALL cars do this if you IGNORED basic SERVICE.
The ENGINE light came on
that means "get the car serviced," if you have tools it means
to a real shop SCAN it.
way ask blind web bunnies, this, we can diagnose your car,
or force you go get it serviced,
stalls have over 50 causes, a tuneup is top of list since 1884.
That old car in France sill runs and is serviced,proper.

try not to assume things, like pump or anything on car
can not be intermittent, (in fact assume it can and win)
get the car serviced
the operators guide, open it ? see the CHECK engine lamp page
see what it states........bingo

Check fuel pump pressure and fuel pump regulator. It sounds like you are not getting fuel into the system and if you are you are not getting enough fuel into the system
