I have a 99 intrepid that did the same thing. My car would do it at the initial start up and also at a complete stop at a stop sign or stop light. The symptoms of my car were several. It kept blowing a 10 maybe 20 amp fuse that opened a door that allowed heat into my car. This same fuse controlled the back up lights as well as the A/C indicator light on the dash. The A/C would work but the light on the dash would not come on. The tachometer needle would also jump with the car's jumping. After several months of trying to figure out what was wrong with it, and no heat, I finally took it to the dealer and explained all of the symptoms I was having. They traced it down to an electrical short under the car by the transmission. It fixed the problem. Hopes this helps.

All lights work I neede to jump start the car, but I hear a hissing sound where I turn the key, and before I spend the money for battery, what do u think?


if your battery is in the boot get a portable jump starter and connect it to your current battery ive got a 1995 xjr and i did this because this was cheaper and fixing jags tend to be very expensive so if your battery isin the back of your car do so but if your batterys in the front of the car and you really dont want to spend money on a new battery then get a portable jump starter and then every time you go somewhere you would have to connect the portable jump starter up to your current battery and start it that way

you can run the compressor for a few minutes to see if you get cold air with the low pressure switch crossed out. if you don't have cold air after about 5 minutes then you still have a leak somewhere.

Car broke down while driving. Stepped on gas with no effect.


Sounds like your timing belt broke. Do you know if it's ever been replaced? Usually they have a life expectancy of around 100,000 to 105,000 miles before they go. All your symptoms point towards it.

1994 volkswagen jetta won't start sometimes


it sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere, what i would suggest is to take it to a autozone and have them put in on the computer. If it is the fuel filter, it is a quick fix not more than 20-60mins.
