Engine Quit On Freeway

16 years ago

Fellas: My wife's 03 Malibu shut down at freeway speed the other day. Fortunately she managed to coast to a safe stop in the trouble lane. She says all of the doors unlocked when the engine died and then all of the dash guages lit up as she came to a stop. The car restarted without a problem so she let it idle for awhile then managed to drive home without further difficulty. Really odd thing is that there are no trouble codes in the on board computer and no dash light to forewarn of the problem. The car was apparently slow to start on a few occasions prior to the incident but seems to be starting and running fine now. Any ideas on what could have caused this to occur? Thanks alot.
