Q: Car cutting off while driving

asked by on

While I am driving, my car cuts off. I think it might be a problem with the fuel injectors.

This could be a fuel delivery issue, but it is hard to say exactly. Your vehicle has a complex engine control system that can self diagnose issues most of the time. Start by having the computer read and see if there are any codes stored that may be causing the issue. I recommend having a trained technician thoroughly diagnose the vehicle to see what is causing your vehicle to stall.
