Yesterday my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer died on me when I pulled out of a parking lot. I had my air on. So I turned it off so I could hear my car when it restarted. I put it in park and started it, but it sounded kind of funny like it didn't really want to start. So I pulled back into the parking lot and drove it around a bit to make sure it would stay running before I drove home. It didn't give me any problems on the way home. My RPM gauge hasn't been working for a couple of months. Every no

Installed new battery yesterday, drove fine. Sat in parking lot while at work. After work drove home, car stalled and died in very cold weather. Restarted after 10 min. Drove home another 2 minutes. Two hours later noticed the side driving lights were still on. Not the headlights or parking lights. Just the tail lights and the side lights. Won't turn off!


All lights are supposed to turn off when a subaru key is off right? No! There is a switch on top of the steering wheel column that will turn on lights for warning when parked. You somehow have hit that switch. ... 1991 Subaru Legacy

I have a 1997 Dodge Intrepid w/ 3.5L engine. Recently, when I would first start the car in the mornings, it would start and then die. As soon as I tried restarting it, it would start with no problems. Two days ago, it did the same thing, however would not restart. Cranking speed is fine, but it acts like it isn't getting fuel. Today I tried starting it and it started and ran just fine, so I drove it for a few miles to test it. It ran with no problems. When I got home, I tried shutting it off and

I just bought a 1983 GMC high sierra the guy i bought it from said it had been sitting for a couple of years but he came out at least once a month and cranked it anyways i drove the truck before i bought it and it ran fine so i bought it i drove it home and on the way home it started smoking and died i checked water and oil levels and they were good any suggestions on what the problem is and where i should start fixing it at would be greatly appreciated


It could be bad gas or a clogged fuel filter and maybe a clogged fuel jet in the carburettor. Start with checking the fuel filter first. If it has dirty fuel in it, it probably clogged the filter and then the jets. That's common in car ... 1983 GMC C1500

I have a 1988 Ford Bronco II 2.9 V6. It has a problem that I or my mechanic can not solve. Ex: Last week I drove to a local bookstore about two miles from my house. On the return trip (about 1/2 mile from home)my car died (this is infuriating because it has happened to me several times before). It will absolutely NOT start until it sits for 10 or 12 minutes. After I got it restarted it made it almost to the house before it died again. I coasted into the drive and called my mechanic. He came over

Start the motor and after a couple of seconds it dies, not every time. I had it at the dealer for a week , he started it numerous times during the day, it started perfect, so we take it home and my daughter drives it, 5 starts later it dies but it always restarts. It shows no codes, dealer cannot find any problem,other than a dirty throttle body which he cleaned, didn,t help a bit.


Start the truck and wiggle the harness on the throttle position sensor, it is on the driver side of the throttle body, if the motor changes rpm , try a new tps. these vehicles have problems with the 5 volt referrence circuit. and could be anything ... 2001 Dodge Durango
