Q: My car just died on the highway - 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer

asked by on

My car was making a noise and then just cut off

My car has 121770 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Unfortunately, without further detail as to the specific noise or symptoms, this may need to be diagnosed in person by a professionally qualified mechanic. This can happen for many reasons such as fuel delivery problems, electrical shorts, ignition problems, and many other possibilities.

I would recommend having an expert, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to determine the cause of the noise and why your car stalled and suggest the necessary repairs.
