Customer Question

hi my name is ***** ***** .I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado and it dies while driving I have to wait 5 minutes or so and it will start and run then dies again.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The engine light came on and I had it checked and they said it was the TCM causing it but its at a local shop now and this guy said it was the BCM so he changed it and it does the same thing.
