My 2001 Stratus Coupe R/T is having electrical issues. The battery and brake light flash or stay on, the service engine soon light stays on and the car sputters while driving. The heat/ac is also not working and makes the car sputter more when I try to turn the heat/ac on to get any type of air... do you know what kind of electrical problem this could be and around how much to fix?

I have a 05 Dodge SRT-4 and a P0339 code just came one day while driving. The car started sputtering and was not able to go past 2300rpm. I continued to drive the car in traffic very slowly and the check engine light started blinking then stayed solid then the sputtering and low rpm restriction went away?!? The car never shut off or has any problems starting up after this but the p0339 code is still there. Im not sure if this is a bad sensor or faulty wire somewhere what should I do???

Well the code is telling what you already know, that the sensor is sending data that is too high. You would need to hook up a fuel pressure gauge and check the accuracy of the sensor. ... 2005 Ford Freestar

My 2001 new Beetle will not stay running. It starts up, then 5-8 seconds later will sputter out and die. If I pump the gas peddle a bit after it starts, it trys to stay running longer but then sputters out and dies again. I replaced the fuel filter, made sure the car has plenty of gas, but same thing keeps happening. It acts as though its starving for fuel? Please help me troubleshoot this, I cannot afford to take this in. Maybe I should have never bought it based on all the problems I'm reading

1997 Cutlass Supreme: When I crank it the car starts sputtering. When I stop at a light or stop sign, I have to use both feet to keep it from bouncing from the sputter. The car is not smoking or missing when I'm driving down the road. Occasionally, when I crank it, it seems to self adjust itself and revs up to almost 3 RPM and stays reved up even when I'm driving. I have to apply the brakes harder to stop. Any idea what the problem could be?

I have a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville with 3.8L motor. I have replaced numerous parts on the motor and when I go to start it, it spits and sputters; all the lights that are on in my car go dim, my Check Engine light (which is constantly on) blinks and the car will stall out.
