I smelled some gas under the hood.I changed the spark plugs.

This stalling problem has been happening allot. I have parked the car to figure out why. I had an oil change last week and had it inspected. I was told the left catalytic convertor was leaking and would need replacing soon. I have been looking at parts online and found 2.

One does not have an oxygen sensor port, this convertor would match my needs if I don't need the oxygen sensor port according to the autoparts store online. I would also have to buy the gaskets at $10 each. I just don't know if this car needs an oxygen sensor or not. The parts would be less than $200.

The second part has everything and is $262 for the part. My mechanic said he would replace the part for a shop hour at $99 plus tax.

Does the symptom of stalling out, going a short distance and stalling out again...sound like a catalytic convertor issue or something else?

Thank you,

car ran out of gas while moving. I was not exactly stopped when I inadvertently shifted to park. now it cranks over, there is fuel flow after the filter but no spark. HELP!!!

Parking lights go on by themselves and stay on for a few minutes, horn turns on by itself but will stop after a minute
and other electrical features such as interior lights don't work and the remote door opener doesn't operate. Anyone have
any idea what may be happening?

The starter and ignition fuse are both fine. i can feel the starter relay click when the key is turned. The starter will not turn over. I checked the power on the starter solenoid and it has power. with the car in run i can arch the solenoid and start the car definitely not ideal. the small wire on the solenoid does not have power. where else can i check i am at a loss.

running lights and parking lights stay on when light switch is on "off" position. Have to pull fuse from fuse compartment under the hood to keep battery from draining. Can hear selenoid switch clicking under hood ( by brake cylinder) when replacing fuse back in . Same fuse operates high beams.

At first my stereo would cut in and out on my speakers, I could only hear it on driver front. If I kind of pressed on the face plate of stereo and hold a little pressure on it with my finger, it would come back on for a second or so. Then sometimes if i hit a bump in road it would just shut off, and i would just have to push power button again. Then it stopped powering on even when my antena was up, now i get nothing at all, no antena goes up either, i already checked all my fuses.What is the problem please?

If abs automatically shuts power off to the actuator when its malfunctioning, why do I hear something buzzing or like a motor running when my keys are out of my ignition? My batter keeps going dead because of it and I have to keep taking my battery cables off everytime just so I dont have dead battery. How do i fix this problem?

Had a bad balancer needed to find out how much it cost to replce on,mechanics fee of course,i know its about a hundred for the part

My battery was stolen. The car ran fine before then. Now the car won't fire. I don't know what could be wrong.

My battery was stolen. I had a battery put in it. Now everything power inside the car will not work. The heater fan that did not work before works now. That is the only thing. I would appreciate the help.

Have had 2 different mechanics look at this car and neither has been able to find the problem. Car stopped running and wouldn't start back up. 1st mechanic looked at it and said it was the cam sensor, put it in but it wouldn't start. Then checked the timing chain, fuses, compression and then he checked the ecm to no avail. Then suggested that i have someone else look at it. Took his suggestion and the next mechanic said it was the crank sensor but that did not fix the problem. He then said it was a short, then it was the Computer in the car and then he still couldn't get ti started. So know i have a car in the driveway that won't start and i need help in trying to figure out what it might be or if the mechanics here in my town are really full of crap and i have been taken. I do know that the car still is getting no spark to start the car, any idea's out there ???

it has bean running perfect but now it just wont start and it smells like gas when i try to start it

Car was running, stopped, will crank over and sounds really fast cranking, but won't start. Had a mechanic look at it,Said that it wasn't the timing belt, replaced the crank sensor but still won't start. Going to try the ECM next, but does anyone have any better ideas on what it might be ??

what is exactly the things i need for a tune up

it made a spark once and now it doesnt work

When the switch is pushed up or down, the windows will not move. The fuses have been checked and they were found not to be bad.

Do I need a new tranny or torque converter or something

But wen I grt out of girst I don't hear it no more

need specific replacement info for head gaskets and timing belt replacement

Hard to steer and making nosie

My car idles to fast and it gos up and down.. sometimes it stalls.

I'VE had several mechanics look at it, to me it's something electrical however, the last shop said 3 of the 6 injectors needed replacing. when at a traffic light it shakes, when I accelerate it hesitates for 15-20 sec then it gets up to speed. Can any relate to this problem. Also the radio dose not work and there is a constant drain on the battery, I've replace the battery for the last 3 years. help please

The brake booster is unbolted and the master cylinder is removed. The intake and the housing for the strut is causing the booster not to come out. The dealer was no help. The tech told me just unbolt and pull out. It's not that simple. I forgot to mention the pin for the brake is removed as well. Can you or somebody please help me. Thank you. Eric.
