2001 Chevy Silverado 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 109000 miles
background: car runs great, when it feels like it.
have multiple IPC issues w/ various CEL messages & faulty gas guage. Gas gauge was on the funk for a while - just dealt w/ it using my trip odometer. Now, I have delays in my ipc - shifting from park to drive, the gear indicator lights will vanish. Temporarily. This too was just annoying.
now, I get faulty oil pressure warning w/ immediate car shut off - while driving sometimes. Oil pressure gauge never indicates low/no pressure prior.
have a base model; no frills (only A/c & cruise).
only mention since one of the CEL warnings is prefaced w/ " security" message prior to engine cut out at 65 MPH. There is no security system on the truck.
engine cuts out & will not start again (until I try to start repeatedly, reset the engine oil change timer, or wait a while)
happening much more frequently nowadays.
