    my cts shits off when slowing down or stopped

    I have an 03' CTS and while driving it randomly turns off when slowing down or completely stopped. I figured out that when I keep my foot on the accelerator it will not shut off. But I after a while u can feel a little jerk from it trying to shut off. Has anybody had this problem before? What could it be?

    I hope that one of you mentioned Crank Shaft Position sensor. Because I can't read through my teary eyes of reading this. Gees, my tummy hurts from laughing at the title and some perfectly placed words.

    Well at least you can take solace in the fact that your car isn't constipated like mine, brb gtg to Right Aid and get me some laxatives to pour in the oil, it's been a week and my car hasn't gone potty
