2 weeks ago I my car stop and check engine light came on. Usually all Ihave to do is restart it, but that wasn't the case the guy who alwaysfix my car said I need a water pump,because all my water and antifreeze poured out He changed that, and it still wontstart. He told me he probably didn't put the timing change back right.What do you think. He changed the water pump because my antifreeze poured out and we tryto put more in it and it keep pouring out,and thats when he said itsthe water pump. He change it and the valves that was on it was brokenoff in the engine and he cleaned all that out. Then when I brought thecar from someone maybe after 4 weeks the check engine light would comeon when I am driving and the car would **** like its going to another gear If I was sitting at thelight and the check engine come on the car would stop, so every time itdoes that I would start it up and keep going. But it does that everyother day. about 3 months ago he put me a new start on. PLEASE I BEG YOU TO HELP ME

Turn key on and off four times car will start and then die after a few seconds. Will not restart until process is repeated.

When you do that the ECM - the brain of the engine - is reseted. In that case the engine starts, detects again a big problem and shuts down the engine. First of all stop turning the engine, you only make the problem worse. Then tow the car to have it's error codes checked. Only then you can do a more precise diagnostic.

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

it sounds like the ecm is picking up a low fluid level and going into self protect mode also known as limp in mode.. the problem you describe is typical of a vehical that is either low on coolant or low on oil. when the ecm senses a low coolant or oil level it will shut the engine down to keep it from damage. I f the levels are ok this would mean that there is a parameter issue within the ecm. my suggestion would be to have a diagnostic scan done on your vehicle. the ecm most likely will have active codes stored. this will give you a starting point as to how to repair the fault. do yourself a favor take it to a small independant shop and not a dealership. this will save you money on the labor costs alone. please rate the solution.....thanks
