well i went to start my car and it wasn't turning over, it finally started and it would not go more than 5 mph
When I put car in gear engine conks out. I start again and. Give a little gas when I place in gear and it runs well. What would cause this.
Car was running well, no warning lights on, battery was disconnected during the process. Reconnected when job complete and car won't start, engine cranks but not start. Starter fluid put in throttle body and still won't start, so no spark, and car has no connection to check fuel pressure. All connections are good and electrical switches replaced.
