    Hello everyone, I own a 2007 chevy caprice LTZ (middle east version) V6 has about 260,000 km on it. The issue I am having is the car will die immediately if I start it after it has warmed up. It won't do this if I start it early in the morning or if it has been parked for a while. There is no check engine light. what could the issue be?

    I'm thinking it's a fuel delivery issue. Maybe the pump is on it's way out causing it to overheat then shuts off.

    Does it do it regardless of how much fuel is in the car?

    It does it regardless of how much fuel it has. I tested the pump and it holds pressure fine. Though sometimes when I start it cold, it feels like it's misfiring and few seconds later it runs fine. Not check engine light

    Check the purge solenoid.
    It doesn't pop an error, if you can start with a touch of the loud pedal, it's probably that.
    The extra vapor from the tank is changing the mixture far to rich.
    My 2 cents.

    I'll try and test it. I can hear it clicking every few moments but I assume this doesn't mean it's functioning correctly

    Remove it and blow into it. If you can blow into it both ways without restriction there is a problem with it.
    Should not be able to blow into it unrestricted.

    OK when Cold, Stalls on starting when hot but what happens when it stalls for the fist time and you restart it again within 30 seconds to 1 minutes without no help from you foot. Does it start by itself and keep running?
