    Default 99 Tahoe randomly cutting off

    At any time while running (however most often while moving down the road) The engine will randomly shut off as will all the electrics. So far, all that has had to happen is pop it into neutral and restart it. Its very un-nerving. Anyone had a similar problem and what could it be.

    Do the cheap simple checks first. Check all the battery and ground wires and starter connections for loosness and corrosion. then check all the ignition wires for the plugs and distributer for loosness and cracks.
