My suburban started stalling after I turn it on, or while I'm driving. I've changed fuel filter, coolant temp sensor, throttle position sensor, crank shaft sensor. And it still keeps shutting off. Any of yall motor heads or anyone with knowledge with these vortec motors, have any idea or suggestion. I would greately appreciate it.

Nah, the lil scanner gave me a code for an 02 sensor. After I had changed crank position sensor, throttle position sensor, coolant temp sensor, fuel filter and spark plugs. $100 plus I spent on shit that didn't help. I was going to change the fuel pump. I just bought the scanner instead and actually have it tell me what's wrong, then keep spending and guessing at it.

I feel you, I just kept changin shit. I changed one thing and had to change something else and hoped it worked I couldnt drive it without it stalling in the middle of going down the road.

I cleared the codes and it hasn't shut off yet. Ima wait till it stalls again and hook it to the scanner if the 02 sensor comes back on, then I will change it.

You had problems with these motors before? Or same issues on another car.

You've replaced all and nothing happened to fix it? That's a lot of money to replacing most sensors to keep the engine working again.
