Default Re: Stalling Issue


I checked the connections to and from the battery. All seems well. I've been having trouble getting the car stared in my driveway now. It will turn over, catch like it's started for a second, then die. I'll wait a bit then try this again 4-5 more times and it will start right up. No lights on the dash, other than the battery light when the car dies.

Now, another event has presented itself. While in park, if I slowly rev the RPM's up and back down, the car will stay running. If I punch the RPM's up around 3k, then take my foot completely off the gas, the car dies. It repeated this phenomenon 4 or 5 times. My sister said the first time the car did this to her, she was on the on-ramp to a highway.
