Q: My 2007 Dodge Charger does not accelerate when i push the gas and the car won't crank either and when it does crank after sitting

asked by on

When I push the gas on my car it doesn't accelerate it also cuts off n drain power from my battery

My car has 101646 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi There, This can happen for a number of reasons and should have triggered a check engine light. Some of the things that may be causing this could be a failing catalytic converter, a faulty oxygen sensor or potentially a dirty or faulty mass air flow sensor. Due to the number of possible causes for something like this, I wouldrecommend having one of our experts from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose using a scanning tool to download any potential fault codes the computer may have stored. This will help to further narrow down what may be causing this to happen.
