200e chevy tahoe sputtered shut down while driven on turnpike after getn gas started back up few minutes later thot it was bad gas what else could be problem


It could be the fuel pump. The pump is in the gas tank. The pump is actually cooled by the fuel. Occasionally, in hot weather, when the pump starts to get old, if you run the fuel tank very low, the pump will heat up. Then, when refueling, you are putting fuel in the vehicle that comes from underground at about 50 degrees F. This can cause the pump to fail.

My 99 Villager has a reaccuring idle problem. After warming up and a few miles of driving the idle will sputter at a red light and sometimes stall. I recently got a tune up but the problem still remains....


Buy a 1 gallon fuel can, and when it does it again, turn it off (if it has'n yet) pour the gas inside the gas tank and try to turn it again, if it does start right away, it may be a bad fuel pump, this because after a time it gets hot and looses power, the cold gas will cool it down and make it work again... Good luck

Check the mass air flow sensor (clean both heated wires with carb cleaner and Q-tip). Remember...cleaning does not always work...sometimes they are actually bad. Also check map sensor. Check for vacuum leaks at all hoses and fittings. If engine rpm drops sufficiently, engine vacuum will drop which may have caused a/c malfunction (controls work with vacuum signal) so I wouldn't worry about that 'till the run problem is dealt with.

Truck after engine gets hot starts sputtering


You're getting a condition known as "vapor lock" or hydrostatic lock. This happens when you run your fule lines too close to a heat source (exhaust, engine, etc). You can solve it by re-routing it away from those heat sopurces...this should help.

Starving for gas when the weather is hot


hmmm sounds like ignition module under distributor rotor button is opening up when it gets hot.after cool down will restart suggest you replace it , it's fairly inexpensive and they are very prone to heat related failure.

Dies while driving


If the engine stalling occur when the engine is hot the most probable cause is a vapor lock, this is when gas boils before it reach the engine, when the engine is extremely gets hot, the gas boils and an air bubble is formed which causes the air/fuel mixture to be too lean, too much air and not enough gasoline, thus making the engine to stall. When you experience vapor lock, just let the engine cools down, have a mechanic to check your cooling system it might cause the engine to get extremely hot.
