2005 GMC Yukon XL issues
I'm a young kid, owning my first truck and im having a problem. I'm not mechanically sound in cars and trucks yet, but I soon will be.
The problem I'm having is that when I would park at my friends house in a certain spot, then get back into the truck and start it, the engine would shut down as soon as I put it in reverse. Now I was thinking and so was my friend (who is more mechanically sound then I am) said that it was maybe the fuel flooding the system. It was a fluke thing and didn't happen for about a month. Then I went back to my friends house and in the same spot as I parked the first time, the truck did the exact same thing. Start it up, put it in reverse, engine cuts off. All electrical stays on inside the cab power locks, windows lights radio, all that stayed on, but the engine cut off.
Finally I went bowling just yesterday out to Hartland, I left and got all the way there with no problems starting, stopping, driving....nothing. After I get done bowling and heading home again with my friend (the same friend that I parked my truck at his house) he is in front of me and were both going about 70 on the freeway, the engine again just shuts down while im driving. I coast to the side of the road and turn my hazards on. Thank God my friend saw me and stopped and came back to help. I tried starting her up before he got back to me and it would crank, but not turn over. He got back to me and we waited about 10 mins while he called a buddy of his. I got back in and cranked it.....and it started, and ran fine all the way home. I already took this problem of "engine cutting off" to my mechanic and he has absolutely no Idea what it could be.
Mind you that the time between the first encounter with this problem and the second was about a month.
The second encounter to the third was 5 days. Now I don't really trust to drive my truck knowing it could shut off again on me at any point while driving. I'm just looking for a cause or to see if any of you have seen or experienced this problem before. Thanks for reading and hope I can find some answers.
