My 2004 Chevy Impala (v-6 3.8) Keeps dying for no appearant reason. I had it to the dealer, they test drove it, hooked up thier scan tool and did all kinds of pressure tests (so they say) They cannot find 1 thing wrong with the vehicle. I drove it away and it has been about 2 weeks and yesterday it did it twice. (Both while driving). Just before it dies, it jerks. It started up immediatly but then died about 5 minutes later. One mechanic said (without looking at it) that it sounds like the "torque converter clutch cylonoide" One mechanic says maybe just a clogged fuel filter. Any suggestions? The torque converter cylonoide is not an easy task from what I understand. ONE MOER THING: I dont know if these two problems are related, but for some reason the fuel guage needle swings from half full to a quarter full and back to half full over and over again for no reason while the car sits in idol. HELP...AHHHHH!! Thanks!

My neighbours car was doin the same thing. We've done everthing to that thing. Its a f in lemon. We've check fuel pressure, plugs, wires, MAF, MAP, IC, air filter, fuel filter, check coils, ICM... am I missing something? oh O2 also. I feel for ya. We finally just parked the car and gave up on it for now, its just not "dependable"!
