It may be the throttle position sensor bring it to Advance auto parts store or Autozone and have the do a code check to determine if there is trouble code stored in the computer to tell you more before replacing sensors.

Im trying to connect a 3rd brake light to a 99 camaro is the green wire postive


Hi William, To begin, the usual color coding on American vehicles is black is ground. To test this, take a long length of cable and a test light. Connect one side of the test light to battery positive and and the other cable connect to the black wires one at a time. If the light comes on normally you have proved the ground connection, then do the same with the other. Next connect the test light to the green cable and the other cable to the black. Press the brake pedal and observe if the light illuminates. If all is well, connect the black cable from the third brake light to the black cable of your car and the red cable from the after market brake light to one green cable from your car an insulate the other. Then go ahead and mount the third brake light. Regards John

I think I may have gotten some bad gasoline. The tank was empty when I put about a half a tank of gas in the car. After about 5 miles I stopped at a red light. When the light turned green, the car...


the reason is probably when it was run to empty, you may have picked up the crude from bottom of tank. check fuel filter, that may be the cause a plugged fuel filter!!

Car stopped while driving, but then I could restart it


You'll have to find out what's causing the check engine light. Take it to Autozone, have it scanned for free then get back and let me know what they say.

My 98 dodge avenger shuts off instantly after I crank it up. Or if it is running and I stopped @ a red light, my car will shut off. or it will start shaking before it shuts off.


if you press(and hold) the gas pedal down a little while stopped, does the car still die? if it doesn't die, your problem is the Idle Air Control motor. it located on the throttlebody.
