My 98 Catera started acting up this evening. I was driving around stopped at the traffic light next thing I know my car won't move, it just shut down (no check engine light or any shaking) when it turned off. I had to push it to the side, gave several tries and only cranks but no start. I decided to wait like 30 mins then tried and it started right away the drove about 50 feet and it turned off again but then gave another try and it started right away and drove about 5-7 minutes and then it shut down again. I ended up pushing it and parked at a parking lot, went with my dad and came back 2 hours later and tried again and it started right up and drove all the way home about 4 miles.
My question is....
Could it be the CPS acting up, or can the CPS cause the car to shut down while driving?
Could it be the computer or something else (Electrical, engine problems)?
I do have an oil leak somewhere below the valve cover gaskets. I changed the valve cover gaskets a month ago but still leaking oil. I'm thinking head gasket or maybe something else causing the oil leak.
There is no coolant leak or any pressure issues while driving, so I'm not sure what's causing this new problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
