Car: 2001 Pontiac Sunfire SLX 4 door automatic with 100500 KM's with the 2.2L ecotec inline 4. The car has had regular service over the entire span.
I had service done (power steering flush, fuel system flush and replace fuel filter and lower control arm bushining replaced) on a thursday. Driving on the high to work the next day (average speed 115km/h) the car just died. There was power for lights etc, but no engine. THere was no warning either, just a sudden and complete loss of power, there were no warning lights. It happened 4 times on the 45 minute commute. The car would restart after it was brought to a stop.
Brought it to a garage where they couldn't repeat the problem but did notice the stored code for a failing O2 Sensor which was replaced. The drive home that friday was fine.
little to no driving on the weekend. Went to work on the tuesday and the car did the same thing, but there was a minute flutter before it stalled, however it would no longer remain on afterwards. On half the trip it stalled out 8 times when I finally got it towed.
the garage found a new code for "lean fuel". THe only similarties were the -20C weather on both morning commutes. I had a full tank on both days as well from 2 different stations.
Looking for suggestions! Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
