Pulled out of driveway went about 2 blocks and car engine jjst shut down. Like what would happen if out of gas but is not. Restarted about 15m later and went about 300 yards and did same thing. Waited again. Started and pulled in driveway. What most likely is cause please.I need to get this fixed. Thanks

Scan for codes adn check fuel pressure first. It shold be 37 psi if below that pump probably shot.

I would suspect a module getting hot and shutting down and when it cools it will restart.I would purchase a manual for the vehicle and locate the ignition control module and remove it and have it tested. Most parts stores have the ability to test these and it is usaully free.
