My 2003 Silhouette did the same thing. We took ours to a mechanic (cost $75.00) for him to say that he couldn't find anything wrong. With ours, it first happened to my daughter, (that's when we took it into the mechanic) then about 3 months later it sputtered for me but didn't actually stall, then a few weeks later it died and hasn't restarted since. It's been sitting in my driveway all summer; not sure what to do. I read somewhere that it might be the electrical groundings. I hope you get yours fixed and if you do, I would love to know what they found out (donanoyus@yahoo.com) Hope this helped.
