I have had this car for a while now. The belt has been replaced four times in the last three months. This car is used. I got it from a really shady guy but the car it's self is not to bad this is a starter car. I just need to find out why the car keeps having problems shredding the belt. I have noticed when I have driven the car I have to give it some gas then let it set so the squealing will stop and then when I press on the breaks the squealing comes back when I used the gas again...
run while key is in start possion
and replaced the fuel pump but the gas is not going to the motor
Pulling and I pulled over and it wouldn't go forward or backwards

trasmision dont chanfe after 3th gear stay on hight sound like high speed switch what you guys think its is. thanks Henry
after the turn is completed, it stops. I also smell something funny- sort of like a burnt smell. What do you think it could be?
Airbag light shows that bags deployed, but they didn't. Can jump start it, or use battery charger and it'll fire, but eventually dies. Took cables off battery and it runs, so the alternator isn't bad. Why does it keep doing this?
air conditioning and heater blows only on high speed 4 but does not work on lower speeds 1, 2 or 3
when the car is shifted from park or neutral to drive,reverse or any of the lower gears, the idle would do a sudden drop and car will cut off. but if i keep my feet on the accelerator immediately after i shift in to gear it wont cut off but will if i slow down. I recently put in a fuel pump, rotors in the distributor clean the IAC and or EGR and throttle body. also have a bad idle and would cut off if AC is turned on while in park or neutral. would gladly appreciate the help. Trani seems to work fine but do you think it could also be a torque converter issue
If the oil light turns on can it shut down the motor? Motor did not rattle. What can also make the car shut down if it is not the oil light?
