If I shut it off and try to start again within a short time period it takes a few times before it will go. And then a lot of times ( getting more and more frequent) when I stop at a light it kills and then won’t start again sometimes for several minutes and to get it to start from that point I have to push on the gas a bit. We just changed the fuel pump, not the filter though, but we don’t have a lot of money to put into this car. Can you please help me with some advice so we don’t have to waste hundreds of dollars before the problem is actually fixed?
Back turn signals just blink super fast, but in front it lights up but stays solid.
When i do get it out of park i have to use both hands to push the button in. It did not give no signs my engine light is not on my service light is not on and i have brake lights and it just started happening
The starter hangs up after its running ?
No air is coming from my Defrost,or A.C. I hear it click on but no air
OK I've replaced ,my spark plugs my spark plug wires cleaned the mass air flow sensor & all the connections. After driving home and my car loss power on the freeway and shut down when I coasted into the gas station the front of my engine was on fire temp gauge got to half way and my radiator was dry all other fluid was fine though. I checked everything and replaced everything that was damaged. After it won't start I replaced the crank shaft sensor which was a pain, and had to replace my serpentine belt tensioner I've poured a little bit of gas down the air filter still nothing it getting fuel I've checked and spark to every plug. Any ideal I have less the two weeks to be out of my home and need my car I'm low income and have no where to go and have a nine yes old son
It's a 3.8 liter 3800 series engine I took an hour-and-a-half trip away from home and on the way back it started lasting power on the freeway and I noticed the temperature gauge got up to about halfway it shut down and I coasted into a gas station where I open the hood and the front of the engine was on fire and torched my spark plug wires and that's it no other type of wires or anything else I replaced my wires and I pulled all my plugs and all my plugs are fouled besides one I replaced all those I try to start my car again and it still won't start and it doesn't sound the same as it used to I've had cooling problems with the cooling system in the past and my thermostat bleed valve was left a tiny bit open so somehow and rather my radiator completely drained in that process any ideas on why it won't start
I sent and wrote my problem at least 5 times
I had the manafoil gasket replaced but they let the sealer dry then the next time they just put on more gasket sealer' now it leaks more and the oil is a milky color. is my engine gone? or is there anything I can do?
The temperature goes all the way up until the red light comes on and then it goes all the way back down to the middle and then I'll ride for a little bit and I'll do the same thing
shutters and shakes, then dies
