I am having exactly the same problem with my 1991 Corsica this weekend. I have read elsewhere that the crank position sensor can do this so my mechanic has started to take it out when it broke in two. He needs to remove the oil pan to push it out from inside now. The other possibility is the EGR valve however I wont know that until after the crank sensor replacement. PS not I'm not a pro but I will let you know in a few days. Answer the crank angle sensor on 3.1 and 2.8Liter V6's is prone to damage from stones and mud flinging up from tires in 4x4's and wears out and fails quite easily apparently. My COrsica had the very same problem last week and this repair did the trick and the car runs like new. When replacing crank sensor, it helps to apply heat to the sensor, not a little heat but do not melt it. The "O" ring sets up and makes it nearly impossible to pull out without breaking......leading to more problems than you bargain for. Once loose gently twist back and forth and pull at the same time gently. This helps alot. Ours had the same problem, turned out to be the ignition coil pack, located under the exhaust manifold, gets hot, opens up, cools down runs fine!
EDIT: Catalytic Converter as most of the problems listed here are.
Because its a Chevy corsica not a ford corsica!!!!!
One reason that a 2000 GMC Jimmy engine stalls while driving could be your filter needing to be changed. The problem could also be a bad sensor.
Why engine stalls on 1993 Chrysler Intrepid while driving and sometimes at stops?
Idle Air control valve
my 1992 dodge dakota wont stay running it stalls when driving and takes a few minutes to get started but if i wait it will start
The problem is most likely a faulty ignition switch. There is a recall that has been in place since 2002.
I would recommend it being trouble-shooted. IT may be multiple problem related. It may be a lack of maintenace problem, or a loss of fuel or spark problem, or a transmission problem-torque converter or shift solenoid problem.
Replace the fuel filter.
Have a similar problem with my forester 1999.
car starts but shut off while driving
If the engine stalls and won't restart for several hours on a 2003 Santa Fe, there is a problem with the computer in the vehicle. Check to make sure all computer fuses are working properly.
you have a sensor problem.
There can be many reasons a car stalls from poor fuel feed to lack of spark. By far, the main reason is poor driving technique.
Not a question. Operator error.
If your 1994 Pontiac Trans Am randomly stalls out while driving, you may have clogged fuel injectors or a bad distributor. Check the distributor first, as this is the easiest to replace.
Whenever any vehicle stalls while driving it should be seen by a mechanic soon. It can be the a issues with the computer, ignition, or fuel.
Headgasket is possible.
Please go here.....Having the same problem with my car it's a 99. http://www.carsurvey.org/reviews/chrysler/cirrus/r64403/comments/
I have a 93 Corsica and had this problem. 1. crank sensor 2 ignition modual 3. main brain. Ck codes at a shop. Some will do this for free.
It sounds like your alternator is no longer recharging your battery. You probably need a new alternator.
Needs crankshaft sensor and or camshaft sensor
If a car engine stalls when turning, there could be a problem with the power steering pump. There could also be an issue with an emissions control device.
If car is coughing and stalls out until you drive whats the problem.
The idle is set too low or there is an electrical problem
