It makes this noise once every 2 to 3 weeks. Usually when I turn on my heat. The car will start back up. What's causing this? I keep a check on all the fluids.
After I hear this sound and I am making a turn the car turns off, but will start back up. I have been checking the fluids regularly. Need help.
