2013 Malibu, 80K miles on it, car starts up ok, idles ok , no CEL. After car warms up it will shut off when stopping at a stop light after 15 second or so, will start right up
and idle fine and will shut off repeatedly while stopped. Car does not turn off while driving, VVT Solenoids were replaced prior to this due to DTC trouble codes.
Replaced exhaust cam sensor but looking at diagram appears the Intake has one too. So will replace it when I get a little time but not thinking that will fix the problem.

Any Ideas, TIA

Get it scanned for codes. Even if the CEL is off, there is probably a code history that may give clues. If no joy there, then I think you will need to look at live-data for what changes as the engine dies.

Billr, Thanks for the reply, History codes were for the intake/exhaust solenoids and a evap code. Will see how the live data goes
