Q: Engine help

asked by on

My car randomly turns off in a short amount of time while Im driving. No lights on the dash and all fluids are ok. Made sure everything was connected securely and nothing .

My car has 255000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

It is possible that you have issues with your ignition switch or maybe an intermittent short or open in the wiring. Without electrical testing, there is no way to tell what is causing your concern. I suggest having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, determine the exact cause of your stalling concern.
