I inherited a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2 from my older sister and she drove with this car forever while it would idle roughly, stall out and eventually die and we had no idea why but we would shift into neutral, restart it, and continue to drive.

Only recently did I get my car worked on (for leaky Power Fluid, the belt slipping off, Cruise Control went out and breaks were bad) and although the guy did fix a lot of those problems--including it dying, he never realized why it was actually happening.
