Same problem the car dies when coming to a stop or when you go to accelerate it chugs and then dies
Low oil pressure comes on even tho it is full of oil. Engine stalls but restarts easily. Take to my mechanic tomorrow.
engine would stall and catch back or would restart while driving down highway. Sometimes hard to start. Replaced both upper and lower crankshaft sensors. Worked fine after that.
Replaced cam and both crankshaft position sensors and still have the issue. GM has been made aware of losing ALL power while driving at highway speeds and they don't have a solution themselves.
Engine shuts off at idle. Will start up and run above idle.
Car shuts off at low speed or stop, no warning. Then starts right up.
Dealer installed new sensor
check engine light came on it was the crankshaft position sensor B I had to take the exhaust manifold off to get to it i replaced both sensors B is on top ,once you do it have the check engine light cleared and you'll be kool
