Hi, My daughter's 92 grand prix 3.1 LE did something strange tonight and I thought I might get some ideas here.

She had just started it at the high school to come home. It had been running about 5 minutes and she was at a traffic light. When the light turned green, she gently pressed on the accelerator pedal when suddenly it quit and would not even turn over afterward. It's about 10* out but I'm not sure it's weather related.

Anyway, what might happen that would kill it like that and not even be able to turn the engine over? Battery isn't dead she had lights and 4 ways going when I came to pick her up. There it was dead in the turn lane.

Thanks for any ideas.
