HI Trish, it's nice to meet you. Is the check engine light on?

Automotive Expert
Ok Do you know what code is being stored?

No have no idea
Automotive Expert
Ok, normally when you have a flashing light its a misfire code. Plugs or ignition coils or plug wires could cause this problem. It sounds like you might have a plugged catalytic converter or a bad mass airflow sensor. If possible, remove the front O2 sensor and see if it's got anymore power. I would get the codes checked to see what's happening If you can provide the code I can provide more [details](/topics-detail/).

It will barely move anytime until you get it up to 3-4rpms then the trans will shift and then the car will drive fine.. And on Ocasion power steer ligjt comes on (with power steering lose) so i turn off engine and restart car then i have power steering again..Thank you

It sounds like you have multiple issues with the car. I believe getting the engine running right should be the first priority. Then take it from there. You're very welcome.

I do also have a 2006 chevy colaro i need help with
Automotive Expert
You'll have to open up a new question for that. It's the site guidelines, not my doing, it's not my site. Thanks for understanding!

And when turning on wipers headlughts or radio all dash gauges die and truck stalls and dies .. Can jump start it and as long as you do not turn on anything you can drive it but barely moving for a bitOh im sorry i did not know

I understand, you can request me if you would like when you ask.
