Car just died while driving to work

Asked by Oct 25, 2016 at 09:57 AM about the 2015 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: General

I have a 2015 Chevy Malibu. Car has been running fine
with no problems. Just changed oil yesterday and filled
car up with gas. This morning as I was heading to work I
made it maybe 2 miles from my house and it started to
shake a little and then just shut off. The radio and lights
still work and I tried to start it again in which it started but
shut off again. Could it be the fuel pump or bad gas?
Should I try a gas treatment before having it towed to an
expensive dealership for repairs. Please help

Gas treatment probably won't work. Is the service engine light on? Instead of towing it to an expensive dealership how about your local mechanic?

It wasn't the service engine light that came on it was a light with a wrench. But thank you for your help
