2004 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 86,000 miles. My 2004 Chevy Cavalier will shut off for no reason while driving. I will be driving and then the car will stall out as I slow down or it will eventually stop. If I shut the car off and turn it back on it starts up just fine and I can drive away just fine, and other times it can happen again within a few minutes. Any help would be greatly appreciated
