newbold1 Posted January 27, 2004 Report Share Posted January 27, 2004 Today I was sitting in very slow moving traffic for about 45 minutes in 25 degree snowy conditions. I had about half a tank of gas in the car. I hardly noticed that the car had suddenly stalled. It was as if the engine just shut-off like I had turned it off. Nothing jerky, no shudder, no nothing... just all of the sudden the motor was no longer running. I barely noticed it with the radio playing. Anyway, I put the car in neutral and it re-started up with no problem. I checked the codes and only had the IP 1599 code showing in history. Some other information to know is that I just had a new A/C Delco alternator installed four days ago. I had a low battery voltage problem coupled with a "Battery No Charge" message. That problem has never returned since the new alternator was installed. Also, I have a 2 year old Sears Diehard Gold (7 yr.) battery, tune-up was done at 90,000 (plugs, distributor wires), new fuel pump at appx. 85,000 miles. The car currently has 110,000 miles on it. Any reason why I would suddenly stall out? I have a feeling it probably won't occur again and that this won't develop into a problem. I just wonder what could cause the stall. It seems like some of the likely problems wouldn't apply in my case based on the above information. Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
