My daughter was driving her cavalier and it lost power and had to pull over along side the road. She had the car towed to a garage. They said that the fuel pump was pluged. They said that they replaced it and to drive it to see if that fixed the problem. I guess no codes showed up. Now you can be driving along ang out of no were, it dies. It will restart but one does not know when it will die again! Any ideas? Please help. Thanks

I would check the idle air control valve before anything else. Then you can check your basics, spark and fuel, which I will send you a couple of video links to show you how to check them if you dont already know
