i tried to start my car and it wouldn't start. my friend replaced a vacuum hose thing that had rotted and also the fuel filter and it idles but as soon as i tap the gas pedal it cuts out. another friend who is a mechanic says it sounds like the air flow sensor meter. he says it is easy to replace. i have no idea where this is located so that i can check it...or how much it will cost if it needs replacing.

My struts are pretty worn out. I hit RailRoad tracks and bottomed out. Now no reverse and it slips in drive. all fluid levels are fine. It has a tapping sound when in Park or Neutral.

Prior to the problem with the fuel pump, I was getting 27 to 33 mpg. Since replacement, my mpg has dropped in half and the engine still bogs and acts like it wants to die.

Happens several times a week. Will not start light flashes. Ten minutes later it will start...

when i turn my lights on, my battery light comes back on. i just put in a new alternator (mine failed when tested) and a new battery (because it wouldn't run unless jumped, but would then die when i turned the lights on... so maybe my battery was fine?) but when i turn on my lights the battery light comes back on and stays on.
