Customer Question
2002 suburban, stalls while...

2002 suburban, stalls while driving, shuts off thenafter a few minutes it will start and runs for a few minutes then shuts off again

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

No check engine lite, It stalls while driving and also if it idles for a few minutes it will shut down. I had the fuel filter replaced, no help

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?

I thought I might have water in the fuel, I put a can of Heet in about 2 hours ago, I just started it and it ran about 10 minutes and shut down.
