Q: What causeing a car spit and pudder and wants to die

asked by on

I want to know why the car want to die

My car has 163000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. There are multiple reasons why a car can have issues sputtering, running smooth, and eventually shutting off. The most common include vacuum leaks, bad fuel sensors, dirty fuel injection nozzles, worn out air filters, damaged spark plugs, and more. Because there are so many potential issues, it’s best to contact a local ASE certified mechanic and have them complete an inspection of your car for sputtering issues. During this inspection, they will be able to find the precise reason why your car appears to be dying while driving, and let you know what repairs are needed.
