I took the vehicle to a local garage after the third incident because the chevy dealer was booked. The garage could find no problem. The vehicle continued to experience these unpredictable shut offs and I took it in to the chevy dealer for diagnosis and repair. The dealer kept the truck for nearly a month and could not duplicate the problem. The truck continued to shut off, on the highway and in the city. I took it to a different dealer and explained the problem and shared the results of the diagnostics. The second dealer also could find nothing wrong with the truck. A third dealer had the benefit of taking the vehicle after it had shut off twice within a 24 hour period--both at highway speeds. The third dealer could find no specific codes on the computer diagnostics that could explain the problem and gave me back my vehicle. This truck continues to shut off while I am driving. This is a dangerous situation as it has shut off while I am towing a trailer, and while I am traveling onto exits. The shut offs do not correlate with weather, time of day, usage, temperature, or speed. The latest incident occurred on 30 may as I approached a city intersection. The truck is parked, for now.

#4 - Engine Shut Off Without Warning problem of the 2002 Chevrolet Suburban
The vehicle was a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 2500. While driving 60 mph under normal conditions on the interstate, I experienced full power loss. Without warning, the engine shut down and could not be restarted in neutral. Engine turned, just didn't fire. No sputter, no dash lights, just an instant shut down. I pulled the vehicle to the side of the roadway, put it in park and it started right up. Fortunately, this experience was on an not so crowded and straight section of the highway. I fear this could happen in a turn, in an intersection, or any situation where the lack of power steering could lead to an accident. This issue is the latest in a few related. What started a couple months ago as intermittent failed engine starts, has progressed into intermittent engine stalls. Initial problems were start related. The vehicle would make a normal starting sound, but just not fire. It would then start normally on the second or third attempt. I see a recall for the 2001 version of my specific vehicle/engine type, and an investigation opened on the 2002 model. This has to be related. The Chevrolet dealer failed to replicate the issue this week and did not receive any codes pointing to the issue. They will not blindly replace parts on a hunch, even with the car being under a full extended warranty. This is a safety issue. Fortunately, the vehicle has not yet stalled in a critical situation. This problem occurred on Saturday, August 29, 2009.
