I can only drive my 2003 Ford Focus for a little while before it shuts-off and won't start back up. The car isn't overheating. Also when the car shuts-off all the lights on the dashboard light up as if I was starting up the car. I have to sit at the side of the road for several minutes before trying to restart the car. The car will start up, but will only go several yards before shutting off again. I took the car to a mechanic when the problem first started and they replaced the fuel filter thin

Heater works initially, then shuts off. A few days ago it started jumping the temp to 32 degrees and I was able to manually bring it back down. Now when it does this it often just shuts off completely and no readout shows, not even the outside temp. Sometimes it will magically start blowing heated air, then will totally shut off again. Always starts out normal after car has been shut off for awhile. ...

I have a 2002 chevy blazer that every once in a while, moreso, in warm seasons, begins to choke and eventually shuts down...When I step on the gas pedal for example, it begins to choke as if something doesn't allow gas to flow freely...the RPMs begin to drop and it shuts down after a while...Other times I will shut off the car and when I go to start it, it'll crank, but won't start...Here is the tricky part, after it shuts down, after a few minutes (10 - 15 mins) it will start up and run as if n

96 Cavalier won't start. Car wants to start and now the anti theft system light is on solid. Ran perfectly until my dad started screwing with my electrical system today with the key in the on position. I suspect the anti theft has gone off and it's shut off the fuel pump. Is there a fix for this without going to a shop? I have tried leaving the key on for 20 minutes, then shutting it off for 30 seconds, then attempting to start the vehicle... the light stays solid and doesn't blink or shut off.
