Customer Question
I have a 1998...

I have a 1998 gmc savana 3500 . The van stops running while in motion. I can put it in neutral and it starts right up. Today I replaced the cam sensor. What else can I do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

No codes when it stops I get a battery and brake light.

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

Yes I'm doing it myself. As I wrote above a installed a new cam sensor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That is it

Does it only happen when foot is off the gas? Or can it also happen going down the highway?
