I was driving home doing about 60 mph and came up to a red light. When I I stopped at the red light there was no problem light turned green and pulled away next thing I know the engine started to chug. I was thinking that I ran out of gas but it didn't die just total loss of power. Well I kept it going for about another 1\4 mile and hit a hill it wouldn't even pull the hill.so I pull over and it is just idling but with a rilly bad chugging so to try and save the engine I turn it off then about 10 second's layer I start it agien. Still chugging and it won't stop so I turn it off agien well that's the end of the car. It will start but dies immediately. And now there is this weird humming sound back by the gas tank that wasn't there before the car did this. I'm thinking fuel pump but hopefully it is just a clogged fuel filter. But the end of that trip to the store ended with the car getting towed home and the pack of cigarettes I bought may end up costing me way more money than I ever thought about spending.

Parked the car and when I tried to start it again it will not start. Throws a O2 sensor code, but usually that doesn't completely stop a car from running. Don't know what is wrong with it. Maybe a fuel pump?

Everything going
paid for a diagnoisis, they said it was the fuel sensor...so had that replaced, dealer called and said car still wasn't right and now they said it needed a new fuel pump as it had a hairline fracture and a seal was melted....hmmmm. So ofcourse, added about another $600 to the bill.....still don't have my car back....it isn't fixed yet.....I don't know what to expect next or where to go with this. It is at a reputible Chev dealership....help!!

My 2010 Chevy Impala V6 3.5 L Flex Fuel is having issues. Drove great for years, since we got it in 2010 and now that we went on vacation and let it sit there for 4 days it will not start. All electronics work in the car but the fuel pump will not connect and we can not find a correct replacement fuel pump even if it comes from the same model and year of car. Since there are so many people having the same issue with the same car I am wondering why GM has not issued a recall on the cars.
