Did you check all around steering column where it comes through firewall, on both sides for any possible loose/damaged wires, (especially grounds) that may be affected by the vibration when hit. Any fuse panels or relay in the general area? Double check any ground straps from frame to firewall, or engine to firewall.

I'd look at two things. first, make sure you have a good dash ground (run a new one from the battery to one of the column bolts where it attaches under the dash if unsure). If you have a key with a chip, it's possible also that it's not reading the key correctly at times. Have you tried using a different key ?

Do the lights or radio in car flash on or off while driving? If so it's probably her battery is bad. Take her battery to auto zone and they can test it for free.

I have a 97 chevy cavalier with a 2.2 liter engine and an automatic trans. i replaced the head gasket and it ran fine for about a month. Then it suddenly started sputtering and stalling, it also had a loss...


you need to take the car to a muffler shop and have the catylitic converter changed... the converter is stopped up not letting the exaust leave the engine thus stopping it.

When ideling mazda wagon 323 dies


Probably not the fault of the carburator directly but could be caused by whatever Mazda calls the 'idle air control.'  The device regulates the idle speed by changing the air-fuel ratio.
