We've had numerous issues over the last few years including intermittent electrical issues, engine cutting out, engine lurching, and difficulty starting. Two particularly dangerous times were especially scary -- one time the engine cut out, without warning, while my son was driving in traffic, on a four lane road, with children in the car. The other time was when I was driving down a hill in a snow storm at night. The roads were slippery and I lost all power including the lights and power steering. We've spent at least $2000 for diagnostics/repairs for fuel system checks, electrical checks, new ignition, new ignition wires, new A/C compressor (A/C wouldn't cool), and one fuel injector replaced. For several months it didn't cut out but the engine would still lurch once in awhile. Four days ago my husband took it in for the key recall and the dealer said that the fuel injectors needed cleaning so we had it done. The car ran fantastic... until today when out of the blue, while driving down the road at 30mph, the engine cut out after going over a bump in the road. We called the dealer and they said to keep a journal of when the issue happens again.

While driving at highway speeds engine just cuts out. When at a complete stop at a light the engine would just cut out without any warning. There is no engine codes, engine just dies. Sometimes it is a pain trying to star the engine while at highway speed.

The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the vehicle was not receiving enough power. The dealer replaced the spark plugs and the starter, but the failure continued. While driving more than 60 mph, the vehicle would shake violently. The dealer was unable to correct the failures. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were less than 100,000.

The engine would turn off while driving. (this happened on September 20, 2002 the car had to be towed because the transmission had failed while driving it on a main thoroughfare. As on highway). ****dimsii IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****768328
