What have you tried so far?Customer: no, not mechanically inclined. weil take somewhere but just need to know the urgency as the mechanics here are crazy busyJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: there was a metallic sound, almost like metal over a screen sound that would occur when driving...that has seemed to stop but now the squeaking has taken over almost like a thimble over a metal screen

My 2008 Chevy Colorado is stalling, chugging and dying.

My 2008 Chevy Colorado is stalling, chugging and dying. We've changed the fuel pump assembly, mass flow sensor, o2 sensor, ignition. Then 3 weeks ago the idler pulley broke off and we replaced it which I don't think has anything to do with the other issue. My mechanic is stumped as the vehicle is not throwing any codes so it can be diagnosed. Any ideas?
