My car shuts off when I put it in drive it can be reeved up and has no problem driving in reverse but as soon as I put it in drive it shuts off. I have replaced both the air and fuel filters but nothing has changed.

Had to limp it home at 10-15mph. It acted like it was WAY out of alignment & if I got it over 15mph it sounded like my tread had come off my tire & was periodically slapping the ground

stalls erradictly

whats the cheapest route can i make my own bypass modul or remove the whole vatts system

Causing it?

I changed the wiring harness at the steering column with a new one and still no light blinking replaced the bulbs as well

Turn signal indicator is broken

Transmission slipping in drive and in over drive. Runs good at first then it's like it gets bumped into neutral. No problems when in 2nd. So Replaced filter. No change. And yes I've got the correct fluid in it. Any suggestions??

Misfires a lot &twill not speed up very much.

The Alt and battery has been replaced after the first time and then it happened again a month later but both are working perfect. After someone looked at it and messed with the spark plug wires it started working again. It's been working well with the check engine light coming on and going off on its own from time to time.

All lights are fine and left blinker works fine. Right will turn on just solid light, no blinking. ??

After changing the alternator car still giving trouble starting sometimes then it just cut off while driving no warning now wont start its turning over but not catching, also no power to headlights door locks brake lights or windows dashboard lights come on like normal, but when checking for brake lights dashboard lit up with no key in ignition. There was no burning smell ever from car, bought new battery put in and nothing happened alternator(less than 1mo)and starter(about3mos) are both brand new.

Olds 98 dies when I stop and after a few minutes will start back up and go. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Perhaps the guy doesnt know what he was doing. Would u try the ecm modulater next. Or crank sensor

I guess I would not be asking this question if I really knew what I was doing
But a tech at Firestone stated that the diagnostic concluded that the cam sensor was keeping the engine light on.
I did not want to pay what they were asking

I can drive it and it's does fine then shut it off and it won't start for a while it has also stalled out on me driving only happens once in a while

I was changing battery clamps someone forgot how they went hooked them up wrong now everything is hooked up right but it wont start.
