I have a 2003 Buick Park Avenue with 114000 miles. I had a tune up 1,000 miles ago. When I start the car in the morning every thing runs fine, starts good every time. I drive for .7 to 1 mile and the car stops dead when I slow down or stop. Car starts fine and runs very good for about a mile then the tachometer drops down to stop but the engine catches and runs OK till I stop. If I slowed down or was stopped the car engine would stop dead. After not running for a few hours it does the same thing

Car occasionally dies while @ idle speed (like @ a stop light) mainly just runs sluggish but has died a couple times, and restarted with no problem....I found if I hold foot on gas pedal slightly while applying brake at a stop then it will stay running, because if I just put it in neutral at a stop then that's when it dies....other than this car runs fine at normal operating speeds on expressways, in-town roads, but as soon as I put it in park it does it as well.

Car sputtered and stopped running then wouldn't start. Tried again three hours later; it started and ran fine (seemingly). We drove approximately 80 miles with no problems.

I have a 2004 Kia Optima 4-cyl w/AT. I was driving about an hour ago. The car was running fine and I made a left turn. All at once the car started running rough. Then the check engine light came on, but would go off if I left off the gas (although the engine still ran rough). A minute or so later I stopped at a stop sign. I turned the car off and cranked it up again. Still ran rough, and now the light stays on. Could this be a simple fix? About 64,000 miles on the car.

My 1999 Alero has been stopping, especially while idling at a stop light. As long as the car is in perpetual motion, it runs relatively fine. When it stops, the engine oil light and the batter light come on. All that I have to do is restart the car and it runs until it stops again. Do you have any idea what the issue could be?

My 1999 Intrepid blows blue oil exhaust after I take off from a stop sign or stop light. Seems to be worse after the engine gets warm. The car has 137,000 miles on it, and my husband thinks there is no alternative to fix it other than major engine work. It's embarrassing - but the car seems to run fine. Approximately what is entailed in fixing this, and how much is it likely to cost me? I need to keep this car running for another 2 years! Thanks.

2003 Jetta car will start and run for a few days, then all of a sudden, it stops running. It also seems to drain the battery. I replaced the battery twice with a brand new battery.

Transmission shudder My 1993 Honda accord anniversary edition transmission "shudders" when I start accelerating at any speed i.e. freeway stop and go traffic, then runs smoothly. If I accelerate rapidly the "shuddering" does not occur. Sometimes the D4 light flashes and the car will not go at all. If I turn the engine off and then restart, the D4 light goes out and the car runs again but still has the slight "shudder" upon acceleration. A couple of times the car would not start after I stopped f
