Chevrolet Celebrity Problems

Engine Stall Or No Start Condition

The fuel pump may fail causing engine to stall and not restart.

Rough and/or High Idle Due to Engine Vacuum Leak

The Engine May Stall After Extended Freeway Driving

The torque converter clutch can stick "on" after extended freeway driving causing the engine to stall when coming to a stop.
