The IMPALA has been cutting out an average of 2 times per week. After trying several things, the crank sensor has seemed to fix the problem.

I bought a 2000 chevy impala. the gas gauge has always floated, the turn signals work when they want. lately it has been jerking and wanting to stall as I'm driving down the road. I have put fuel injector cleaner in, I have went to a higher grade of gas, I am on a limited income and don't want to play the guessing game and replace the wrong parts when it comes to figuring it out. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

This is really dangerous. I was at my aunt funeral and while I was driving the car just turned off out of no where. No signs or nothing, I couldn't steer to the side of the road and on top of that I was turning at the arrow and this happened in the middle of the road near a gas station and it was alot of traffic. It had gas in it. I had just put 50.00 dollars cuz I didn't know what or where we was going for the funeral. My family and I could had died that day.

This car has been a really good car for the most part until recently while driving down the interstate this car will just die without warning and then the battery will be completely drained within a matter of 20 minutes. Several hours later and a jump start the car will start right back up and act as though nothing has happened. We have hooked it up to a computer and nothing shows up at all. However up to this point on occasion the car would start jerking while driving down the road and the fuel gauge is now just floating, more concerning is the stalling for no apparent reason any suggestions would be great!

No steering and as i watched a car in my rear vies mirror almost HIT me, I broke down and had enough..this has happened a few other times, but never on a busy road....I will NOT drive this car ever again....I called the Better business Bureau and they had chevy contact me..Well Chevy Sucks...Told me * Oh Well, there is no warrenty on the car and we haven't gotten many complaints about this problem so you have to have it fixed and pay for it* So I not so nicely told the guy to kiss my butt and said it will now become my mission since i am not driving the scary car to make sure that EVERYBODY who has this problem contacts the BBB.....Are they waiting for someone to get killed??????

I have been reading that this happens to alot of people, yet there seems to be no fix! I will be driving dwn the highway at misc. speeds and the car decides to cut all power! & die instantly. I have been doing 60 miles an hour and lost all power with my 2 year old baby in the car. Sometimes you can throw it in neutral and restart it and sometimes it won't start at all and I have to pull across 5 lanes of highway to the side to stop it and wait...this is ridiculously dangerous! I have had it in and out of the shop about 6 times over the last year, and about $900.00 later there is NO HOPE!!! What the heck?!? Does ANYONE have freakin clue?
