, 5.7L V8, Taylor, MI, April 11, 2011, 08:38

engine sometimes stalls while driving or will not start/turn over at all. There's no power wheen this happens. I will wiggle the cables from the battery to the starter and then it will start and run fine until next time

    Check out your battery cables and starter system. Seems you are near to finding the problem.

    Turns out both + and - cables were loose to the battery terminal. Can't believe it was that simple. Thanks.
