My car stalls while I am driving. I don't even break or anything it just shuts down completely. The fuel regulator was replaced in the end of May 2005. When they replaced the fuel regulator, it seemed okay for a while, but then it started messing up again. I also replaced the fuel filter and it is still stalling.

On Sunday morning December 7,2003 my 11 yr old and I were heading out, I started my 2000 Impala ls and "boom!! the car blew, shook, and started smoking, we both jumped out. My neighbors came running to see what had happen. I called my insurance and they had a tow truck come get the car to my mechanic. Turns out the fuel pressure regulator malfuntion and blew and caused the explosion. My mechanic and I both called cheverlet on this, there response was"not enough reports for a recall"but to save my reciepts and when there is I will be reimbursed.I got a report number and that was it.after almost 2 weeks I got my car back and paid over $1500 in repairs for the damages caused from it. I finally got a recall letter, called cheverlet and they gave me another file number to put on my claim form.I just got a call from them this past Friday informing me they will only reimburse me 800 and some change. When I asked why, all mario johnson could say was thats all were willing to pay you. So I asked him if everyone whos car blew up from this is going to half to eat almost 50% of the cost from there faulty part? he refused to answer me. I belive I am entitled to my total cost of repair of the $1500 +, not the 800 and some change they are offering me for there errorand default on this car. I hope you can help me and others who are and will be in the same perdictament as myself get all of our hard earned money back. Thank you.
