    Car sensor only 1 day before shows check engine light,then goes off.... While driving this piece of sh@t on a holiday weekend it decides to systematically SHUT DOWN. Sensors,gauges,lights go off-. Car starts missing. I pull off Frwy immediately, car dies. Will not turn over. By the time the super happy tow guy gets there said piece of sh@t,....attempts to turn over but only turns on check battery light?!?! What is this fuseable link I keep hearing about? Car guy said same thing at shop,....but wasn't sure.
