While driving my 98 oldsmobile intrigue suddenly the engine talled/died, I could not control it, it was almost impossible to steer it to the side of the street and the breaks were not responding so well. The Service Engine Light came up just before, it felt like I ran out of gas, but it was almost full.. WTF????????
Car just died and won't stay running I can't hear fuel pump kick on!
my car keeps stalling out of nowhere sometimes it starts right back up sometimes it taks a couple of tries.......
I had overheating issues last month..ended up changing hose, new water pump , new radiator and so on. Finally got problem fixed and 2days later. started having car stalling issues. It dies while on fwy or street very annoying and dangerous! And it takes a while before i can start the car up again ..i tried fuel injector cleaner and couple pf days ago tried sea foam motor treatment.. hope gets better soon
Car starts ok but can stop running at any time and will start after about 8 trys
Car kept stalling The fuel pump was replaced
Car has a tendency to cough and sputter at low speeds. Sometimes pushing down on the gas pedal would relieve this issue but not always. Has died suddenly without warning while driving or stalled completely when I pull to a stop. Also it sometimes takes several minutes to get it restarted. I recently replaced the fuel filter as recommended by mechanic but problem persists....in fact it's gotten worse.
Stalls when stopped sometimes has trouble starting
Gas gauge constantly reads full. Then car stalling and having start issues randomly. Suggested fuel pump & sensor by mechanic.

Same As Above Except My engine light has been on a couple weeks and recently had the defective upper/lower manifold gaskets replaced due to a hole and leaking coolant.
