    This was the fuel pump. Checked for fuel on fuel rail(none), then tapped the fuel tank the car then cranked right up. When shut off would not restart.

This was the fuel pump. Checked the fuel rail and no gas. Shook the car and it started, but shut off after a moment.

1966 Volkswagen Beetle cuts out while driving. required a tow back twice

Not totally clear on your situation. If your car will start after setting for a while (let's say several hours), and will idle fine but then die after being driven, only to not start again for some time (an hour or even longer) then you are pulling garbage from your tank into the strainer in the fuel pick up. You probably need to have your tank cleaned. Good time to replace filters as well.

99 gmc sierra tow/hual when driving comes on and goes off by its self when in drive/od and revs engine when it does

Check that the orange wire in the right side of your steering column is not cut or broken. It has 2 conductors in it. When they short together, it will turn the tow/haul function on or off each time. If they don't touch each other, the tow haul function won't activate.

I want to tow a 1999 Buick Regal behind 2002 Ford Explorer (4.0L V6). I am thinking of using a tow bar. Tow is 1,100 miles - one time. See any problems? What tow bar would you suggest?

Not a good plan. Rent a car dolly from u-haul or somebody.
The reason is that the wheels will move certain internal parts of the transmission that need lubrication, but that comes from the engine running the pump. That is why some towing companies that have to tow cars with the drive wheels on the ground will sometimes leave the engine running and the tranny in neutral, but that won't work for long distances

Most likely cause is a bad starter. When cold, a faulty starter will function but after some driving, it heats up and needs more power to get it to work. Your car is displaying all the symptoms of having a defective starter. Best of luck.

Car wont start sometimes

Try having the entire fuel system inspected especially the pump and tank.

If it has been getting towed from the rear end and then it starts right up then that's a clue.

My 2002 pontic grand am will turn over from the solenoid but want start is there a realy thats stopping it from starting

All fuel injection vehicles have a motion sensitive fuel cut off. It shuts the fuel off in the event of a crash. Hitting a large bump will sometimes cut the fuel pump off. The reset is usually a red button about as big around as your pinky finger. Your owners manual will tell you where it is. Look up "fuel cut off" it is sometimes under the hood, sometimes in the back. I once saw a tow truck go 100 miles into the booneys to get a Subaru that ran over a big rock. Tow truck driver pushed the reset and followed the Suby back to town. No it wasn't me. I dispatched the truck.

Chrysler sebring 99 convertible was driving and shut off

Under the hood check the starter fuse it a 20 amp and can fail any time. My car has done it twice, thankfully not when i was driving. It just wouldn't start. First time i had it towed and the second time I just checked it and replaced it myself. Still looking for a cause?
