My car has been shutting off and on by itself while I'm driving and at stops. When it shuts off, there is no check engine light or maintenance soon light. I have had 2 mechanic look at it and they don't know what the problem is. I haven't had a tune up since I got my car and was wondering if that could fix the problem, and if not do you know what it could be?

Do you
have the same problem?

Clean throttle plate on both sides with choke cleaner and iac hole if you have one. DO NOT use 15% blended alcohol fuels if those are available unless your car is flex fuel that could be your problem.
