Q: Car won't start.

asked by on January 06, 2016

Car is slow to start and then stalls. I was able to drive it for about 10 minutes and then it dies again. I let it sit for about five minutes, then it restarted, but died when stopping or slowing down.

The problem will need to be checked to see if you are loosing ignition or fuel to your engine, since the most common problems are the fuel pump, engine module and distributor going bad on these engines.
