Customer Question

it just shut off while driving
JA: What is the model/year of your Chevy?
Customer: 2003 chevy tahoe
JA: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No I am trying to do some research on what could the problem be and have bought a new battery because I thought that was the problem but now it turns on... 5 minutes later it just stalls and shuts off
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: Yes the check engine light just came on on Saturday. Was going to take it in today for service but it stalled and shut off when driving yesterday after installing the new battery, it just stalled at idle and shut off
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

when the engine stalls out, does it crank over and not start up or does it not crank over at all?

Have you checked for codes in the computer?

Can I get your engine size and or VIN?

Thank you!
