My 02 Chev Exprss, V6 Vortec keeps having the same issues over and
over. The Computer never shows any fail codes on the scanner. No one
at the Dealer seems to know exactly whats the cause. It dosn't matter
if its cold, warm, raining, snowing does the same things over and over
and never the same thing twice. This is a breakdown of what has
happened so far. i drive Courie in this Van over 500 kms / day
1) Went to leave from work, started tha van, moved 4 feet then
stalled. Wouldn't re-start. After sitting an hour, started and ran
perfect for 4 days
2)on the 5th day, Drove about 150 Kms, stopped at a store, left
vehical idling, when I came out it wasn't running (Stalled). tryed to
re-start and it wouldn't. 10 Minutes latter, started and drove 2 Kms,
died again wouldn't start. Came back 5 hours latter, drove home no
3)Worked well for a week. Other then when driving at around 100kms /
Hr, or under a load up hill, it felt like it was missing or cutting
out, but, never died.
4)After a week, went to start in morning, wouldn't start. It took 2
hours before it finally started. Ran well, Stalled 2 more times, but
always strated right up.
5)2 days after that, drove nearly 350 Kms, all day, never shut the
vehical off. On the way back home, driving at 110 Km/ Hr, suddleny,
stalled out of the blue. Coasted off the road, waited a minute, it
restarted. Drove about 3 more kms, died again. this time it wouldn,t
re-start. It tryed, ran abit, stumbled as you pumped the gas pedel,
but wouldn't stay going. Came back 2 hours latter, drove it home
worked fine. Stalled once, but re-started right away.
No one at the delaers can make it die for them. I replaced
Distributor Cap, Rotor Button, Coil, Fuel Pump, temp Sensor, still
does the same things. As you can see, It has no set patteren. Just
does it at random. This engine was put in about a Month ago. Never had
these issues with the old engine. Maybe I should simply put it out of
its missery.Anyone who has any ideas, please let me know.
