    I have a 2000 Alero 3.4 V6

    My engine cuts off as I am driving causing car to stall out. Hard to re-start, come back next day, it starts right up made it home. This happened to me twice. I have to keep gas full or it cuts out.

    Car will to start. Car does crank over but will not start. All electrical components have been replaced. New fuel pump, new spark plugs, new ignition modular, still won't start. I've had to certified mechanics look at car and no one can find the problem. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. It is not the security system.
