Car Turned Off While Driving

Asked by Apr 07, 2010 at 10:37 AM about the 2000 Pontiac Sunfire SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving home from work when my car surged twice and then cut off! Lucky I was on the off ramp and coasted to the mediun. When I came to a stop I opened up the hood and could here something leaking. .

So looked under the car and saw oil. Looks like it actually came up thru the tube where you check the oil! I walked to the store and got some oil and poured it in and didn't see any leaking.

Had to get towed home

I put on code reader and it says 0 codes. I sprayed starting fluid in the intake and car went varoom for couple of secs then died.
