why does my 2001 Lexus GS 300 keep shutting off?

Asked by Jul 26, 2017 at 04:16 PM about the 2001 Lexus GS 300

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4-5 months ago, it would not stay started.  Took it to mechanic; he had no
issues and could not find a problem.  i have been driving it since, with very
little issue.  It would occasionally shut off when i was slowing down to a stop.  
Check engine light, vsc on & vsc off lights would all come on. i could go long
periods of time with no problem.  then a few days ago it started acting up
again.  almmost like it tried to turn off while i was driving higher speeds, but
didnt.  But when i am going slow it keeps shutting off.  hard to keep it on long
enough to get it in gear.  Pushing the gas helped. Now it wont stay cranked
at all.  all three of the afore mentioned lights stay on.  recommendations?
