The car starts slow then sputters, light comes on and then flashes. I got a tune up and have taken the car back 3 times. 2nd shop said they would fix it, light came on this morning on the way to work. New Plugs, air filter, gasket maker, 2 coils, 1 intake gasket. I still can't drive this car. I was told the car misfired on 2 and 5, but no one can fix the car.
For a few weeks now I have had trouble starting my car. Then shortly after it wouldn't accelerate. I noticed that if I stepped on the gas, but kept it under 2500 rpms it was ok. But anything over that it just won't go. There are no sensor lights on. I did have a minor accident where I needed the front end fixed, including the radiator. I hit a truck with a trailer hitch at about 5 mph. I don't know if that could have caused this problem or not. Help with any ideas would be great!
When i turn my headlights on my dash light won't light. I cannot see the speedometer, etc. Why? and more so how do i get it to light again? It wasn't the fuse, at least the mechanic said so.
