Check to see if its getting fuel ok.. shoot a little starting fluid in the air cleaner and see if it will start .. if so its not getting enough fuel its either the pump or the filter puggin off. thanks Jerry

    still sounds like it isnt getting enough fuel to me . if you continue to drive it it gets worse? you might have to try a little starting fluid in the air cleaner yet .. just how long do you think it will set there and idle ? also if you rev it up does it like die like its out of fuel ? Jerry

2002 chrysler town and country shudders when braking and also when driving at certain speeds

Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, Or if it shudders on breaking it could be the disks or rotors are warped. The part where you say it feels like it's not getting enough air is an indication that the engine has a vacuum problem. How does it feel at idle? Trouble shooting is like going to the doctor, the more information the better. If the symptoms happen on cold starts, or is it random. Does it only happen when you break? If you put the gear in neutral and coast and you hit the breaks does it do the same thing? let's try and narrow it down, let me know? GE

Car died then started to chug. who not speed up like it wasnt getting enough gas. had the car floored and would chug along. service engine soon light was blinking til i got home. now it will not start

So many things that could cause this problem,have the fuel pressure checked,and then maybe a stopped up cat(converter).If it has jumped time it will have this symptom also.

Ford maverik, 1996 2.4 petrol. Breaks failed once, abs activated, pedal didnt toucn floor, but it didnt wanna stop. Abs was working v hard but with little breaking. Would this happend if one of the breaks...

The most common reason would be a bad wheel sensor. the computer may have received a signal that one wheel was locking up and so it keeps releasing brakes until all wheels are spinning at same speed. this can get scary, your braking but car wont stop. have the abs computer scanned for any codes, the codes will tell you where the problem is, lets hope theres a code. otherwise you will need to wait until it gets worse or happens again. good day.

My traction control light and ABS lights are on. They are off when i first start the vehicle and then come on right away as i use my breaks or sometimes after a couple minutes. My ABS in the mean time...

first off i had the same problem, i took it to the dealer, and they have a reader that told them it was my left front hub assembly, they replaced it and it was ok for a week, we called and told them that iot was doing it again, brought it back, they said it was in the contacts the wiring harness had, we brought it back home, and it was ok for a week , took it back in and dealer said they could not find problem, abs system, workes off of the hub assemblys, so if one is replaced, the others could be going bad also, so mif you replace them you should do all four of them.

My 99 Camry has done 400K. The blower motor fan stopped working. I checked thge manual, removed the resistor and tried a direct battery feed to motor to check if motor is OK. Motor started working on full...

you know the thing has run 400k miles, that is 300k past it designed life. break down and buy a new fan for it, it will set you back about 60 bucks. if you can replace the resistor, you can change the fan. a new set of plugs, plug wires, and a set of tires may be warranted as well.

No reverse gear, makes clacking noise when going forward

Obvious transmission damage. More than $1000. Possibly get a used transmission for $700-$1400, about $300-$700 To install it. Really unfortunate, my heart goes out to ya.

And when they replace the tranny, have them fix the reverse interlock to prevent this in the future...

Does the battery light turns off when you start the car? You can check the main fusible link by the side of the battery.(60A or 100A) this could be the problem
