Was driving when engine sounded like it was going fast but car wasn't suddenly dash lights and instruments stopped working wipers stopped radio stopped when I stopped car stalled and won't stay running. Changed head gasket was leaking still won't stay running dash doesn't register anything

No way to get "check engine" light to go off!!! Disconnect negative battery post it's ok until I restart!

my saturn will start up just fine and will run good till i get to where i am going and shut it off come back out wont start seems flooded wait half hr runs good.

I thought it was my tires but they are all good. It seems to be coming from the front passenger side. The car drives fine, doesn't pull to one side, stops fine.

Red lights, stops, and park i get high rough idle. Few times car died.. had to keep foot on break and floor it to get it to start and keep it started. Went to O'Reilly they checked light said Erg valve and battery. Replaced them. No change. Cleaned out throttle air intake valve. Very built up. Helped a bit with idle. Now Autozone gave code PO410 smog pump. I have no clue what to do. I'm a single homeless mom. Any direction would be fantastic.

newbattery x1week ago. Problem continued, fuse replaced.ran. checked bymechanic.

Do you have any idea how to troubleshoot this problem before I take it to the insurance company to do the repairs of the accident

On the day of the accident we were hit passenger rear quarter panel. It looked like it was okay to drive after being moved a foot or 2 to the side. It seems to be able to drive. We drove off and the next day it didn't start. Service engine light came on when trying to start. The engine is turning over but won't start. It sounds like it's not getting fuel to start. Is there a cut off switch in the rear to keep the car from starting if there is a problem with the fuel tank.

It started knocking and was still running fine,then I hit a puddle of water and it got worse. Will run okay but lacks power and if I drive ten blocks to store and back it barely makes it back ,New plugs and wires and when I check the plugs when I get home there soaked in gas!

it has been stalling and has a very loud clanging sound
it soundn like it is in the front right part of the car.......
i had brought it to get servicd to sears... they replaced sparks wires filter pvc valve, valve gasket cover,
and some fluids they said it needs a oil pan gasket... so it was brought home went for a ride sounded ok
next day driving in town and it was making the clanging sounds nad also felt like it wanted to stall..... oil leak was found .... so how much is a oilpan gasket and can that new gasket end the clanging sound.... thank you

Was doing oil change, plug might have got cross threaded, now just spins but won't tighten. Think pan has to come off, but not sure best way to do.

when first start up car in morning & its in drive the lights come on; but when shut off then started again there off. Changed both bulbs and the relay. What else could it be?

The noise is only while accelerating & seems to go away when up to speed. It doesn't hesitate or seem to have any power problems...just the noise.

while replacing the sensor I tapped the starter with my wrench and a few sparks came from the starter area? After that it turned over a few times and then it died completely? Please help .....!
