06 Freestyle shuts off while driving

While driving home today after accelerating through a stop sign the engine shut off. I popped it in neutral and tried to restart it. The engine would not start before I completely turned the ignition off and turn it back on. The check engine light or the wrench light did not come on. I checked the battery connections, fuses, plugs on the ignition coils, every ground I could find. All turned out to be fine. Does anyone have any insight into this problem? Thanks for your time.

Re: 06 Freestyle shuts off while driving

Have it scanned anyway, it may have a diagnostic but not throwing a CEL.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: 06 Freestyle shuts off while driving

Check the air filter. Have seen many of these with a poor fitting filter allow Either water when it rains or dirt,bugs screw the MAF readings and cause all sorts of problems. Look for fit and lid installation
