the car drives well for 5 , 10 or even 15 minutes then on the freeway the speed starts lowering the gas pedal doesn't do anything. I changed the fuel pump, had spark plugs, and still not working properly
at highway speed engine dies... no power, then power comes back in 5 to ten seconds or as much as 20 seconds... I have had to tow the car 3 times in the last month. I try to keep the fuel level at least one third full to protect the fuel pump. Gotta get it fixed... I am paying for A car that I cant trust. I put in New plugs and Air filter in less than one week after buying the car. just for fun Gapped correctly and with anti seize compound.
My car jerk or throttle when I accelerate
I don't have it fixed yet but when I am slowing down from 45miles an hour it loses all mechanical power I have to immeadiatly throw it into neutral and it will restart just fine I need to know what would cause this
lost of engine power and loud sound in head
