2009 Chevrolet Aveo Stalled while driving


Asked by Nov 09, 2015 at 06:52 PM about the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a used Chevrolet Aveo with 79,000 miles on it.  I was stopped
at an intersection.  When the light turned green, I made a left-hand turn at
a low speed and the car just stopped dead.  I stepped harder on the gas
pedal with no response. No lurching, no smoking, no lights flashing... it just
went completely dead.  Put it in park, restarted it, and then it drove fine.  
Concerned it's a hazard to drive.  What could be wrong?

Have you done a tune up lately? I would start with that and a good fuel system cleaner like Seafoam or Chevron Techron.


Any check engine light? You can have any auto parts store check for OBD trouble codes for free. Also check that your battery is mounted properly and not moving around. Check battery leads are properly secured.
