My battery in my car died. So my car sat for 3 months. I keep having things done to it, thinking it's this and that what is wrong with it. The battery died and had it recharged recently. But my car keeps wanting to stop and not run good. When I am stopped at lights, it makes chugging sound and sometimes it dies and I have to restart it. I was told, it could be my relay box. That the points on it are sticking. Could that be the problem with my car? My brother who is a Certified Auto Tech., said it's probably a sensor. It needs to be checked. I called Sears and they told me, in order to do that, the engine light needs to be on. Sometimes it's on, and then it isn't. Does that light Have to be on to do any kind of testing? I need my car. And I need to know what I should do to get it repaired.

I have a Z71 and been hearing a loud chain like noise coming from the front of my truck by the tires. A couple of times the red neutral like went on the one underneath the 4wheel drive button and i could not get it back into 2wd unless i turned truck off and restarted. One day the neutral light stayed on then i got worried. One mechanic told it was my 4wd drive shaft? it has chains and sprokets? The truck runs fine, actually great. It goes into 4wd now and back into 2wd no problem but the noise is always there when im driving. Does anyone have any advise for me please?
