check with GMC. There was a recall that came out about that and you can go to the GMC recall site and get the exact reason. Need to take it in though. Jerry There are other things that you can do first fairly easily. Sounds like fuel system problem. Change your air filter, your fuel filter, put in a bottle of Valvoline Synthetic Fuel Cleaner and change spark plugs. If your Envoy has done 100k miles on the same spark plug wires, change those too. Use only OEM wires. Also change your emmissions equipment, such as the EGR valve, PCV valve, O2 sensor and breather filter. These are all pretty easy jobs and the whole thing should take you under 2 hours with a repair manual. Shank

The vehicle would stall when put in gear would be the fuel pump. The fuel pump is very weak which would explain why in neutral the vehicle starts if it gear it would have to have more gas.

There could be a few reasons why a 2000 Jeep Cherokee would stall in stopped traffic. There could be a fuel line clogged or there could be a bad spark plug.

Yes, there is. The 1998-2000 Envoy is a clone of the Chevrolet Blazer. The 2002-2009 is a clone of the Chevy TrailBlazer

Is it low on Anti-Freeze? That is a known issue for a car to stall!

The GMC Envoy XUV was first introduced in 1998. The first generation lasted in production until 2000. They decided to re-release the Envoy in a second generation model that started in 2002 until 2009.

Could use more info but, a plugged fuel filter could do that.

That depends on which year of Envoy you had in mind. If you have a 1998 - 2000 Envoy, yes - the Envoy for those years was just a trim package for the Jimmy (likewise, the TrailBlazer was a trim package for the Blazer). However, after those model years. While the Chevrolet Blazer continued production afterwards, the Envoy/Jimmy was discontinued after the 2000 model year. 2004 model years and newer are an entirely different platform, and those parts will not interchange.

Under the rear passenger seat on the driver side.

The first thing I would try would be cleaning the throttle body with some carb and choke cleaner. When they get really dirty it can cause you to stall at slow speeds. On my 93 there is a Crank Shaft Position sensor. Mine started to melt and the jeep stalled at weired times for a week. If your jeep has a lock up solenoid in your tranny and its stuck on, then you will stall at stops Not sure about a 94, but my 2000 would stall while driving at highway speeds. Dealer replaced the oxygen sensor and it fixed the problem.

It may be because the idling unit is broken.

check you antifreze level if it is low you wont have eat or if you get lots of fog your heater core is bad

I had that issue with my Cavalier and it turned out to be a fuel pump problem. I would check with your local mechanic.

change the camshaft position sensor, workind on mine.

check fuel filter and pressure

crank sensor in 2000 dodge neon fails. car starts to stall while operating. idols with no problem, when in operation starts to stall again and again until will not start again.

cmp snsr will not prevent the car from starting,ckp snsr would.

Could be fuel related. Bad fuel or clogged filter/Injectors. That would be my guess until I knew more information. i.e. Does it do it all the time or just once.
