Q: Engine dead.

asked by on

Engine died all of a sudden.

Hi, you could of had one of a few different issues that could cause the stall. The first is a recall on the power train control module needing reprogrammed and it is causing stalls during warm up. The other issue that may of caused the problem is the fuel pump shut down and will need to be replaced. I recommend getting your computer module reprogrammed and getting the fuel pump checked for proper operation.
