I was told I needed a new starter. When the man from AAA had to tap my starter for my car to start, but I was also told it has to be something else wring with it, the fact that I stopped while she was driving. I had problems with the motor mounts before, because I got in an accident. What could be wrong with it?
My car has 190000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
In my experience with this engine, it is likely a crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor that is breaking down under heat. A code scan of the computer should be performed which may help in diagnosis. There are several sensors and actuators to control your engine which can cause it to stall while driving which requires a diagnostic. If you want to have this checked, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the stalling issue and make the correct repair.
