Customer Question
Hey I have a...

Hey I have a 2002 gmc envoy & when i go to crank my car it starts up now at first it didn't we thought it was the fuel pump not getting gas to the engine or something of that sort but wasn't exactly the issue just replaced the camshaft position sensor my car cranks & starts but once in gear like drive/reverse it shuts off any idea about that ? Could it be a wire issue or something just need some type of answers no check engine light is on well at least not anymore

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

What do you mean ?

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

I've replaced the camshaft sensor charged the battery put on a new gas cap check engine light went off

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

Like the car starts up now but it cuts off once placed in drive or reverse

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

Does it lunge or try to pull to hard when shifted into gear?

Will it stall on a rack or stands while off the ground?
