Is this a gas motor or a diesel? Either way, there are a few things to check. If this doesn't help, reply or repost with more specifics. Either type of engine will do that if there is water in the fuel. Was it damp/rainy recently nad the tank less than half full? Did you just get fuel? Even if not, drygas or diesel fuel conditioner won't hurt. If it's a gas motor and you just got fuel, is it possible that diesel got put in the tank? I've seen it several times (once because a valve failed at the gas station) I figured it out by taking a gas sample and smelling it. If you let the sample sit for a while, the gas starts to evaporate and the diesel smell becomes more prominent.

2006 Scion Xb - The battery light came on and all the lights slowly got dimmer until the car stalled - Any suggestions

How old is the battery? Most batteries, are good for about 5 years. If you get a battery from Walmart, that is not the wisest choice, they are second-hand / bottom of the barrel type batteries at Walmart and Kmart. Get a reputable brand like from Napa. That's where I would start. Check your doors, make sure there is nothing keeping a door open and your dome light on.

2006 ford power stroke starting problem

I don't know if this is a help or not, but my 2006 F350 had the same problem, and finally would not start at all. Towed to a Ford dealer, and they found the FCM (Fuel Control Module) was bad. Replaced it, and now it starts fine. Pretty costly, but at least is works. Good Luck

I have a 2000 F350 7.3L crew cab long bed with 140k miles. Mostly highway miles and never towed anything over 3500 pounds until now and has not ever been chipped. I just towed a 23' toy hauler 5000 lbs...

Sounds like the front seal leaked some fluid. If I remember right the tranny cooler in that year is less than adequate for towing. The "puking" seems to happen when your jogging the trailer into position, shifting from drive to reverse and not moving very fast. One fix is to install the 6.0 aux cooler and another is to install an aftermarket cooler. My '94 F350 did this on a 123 degree day when I was trying to jostle my 9,000 lb fifth wheel into my friends front yard. I lost about 1/2 qt. replaced it and it hasen't leaked since..that was about 2 years ago.

I was going to school this morning when i got on the highway my car would not go over 35 it stalled out out i got it started still woud not go over 35 stalled out again wouldnt start the starter was...

Sounds like the starter failed to disengage from the flywheel after cranking. Remove the starter, as your taking it out pay attention to where the gear is located and if it is stuck in the flywheel teeth. If it is replace the starter and make sure you have it aligned correctly and everything should be good to go. This is common in starters that have become weak or when the solenoid is not disengaging correctly.

2004 f 250 diesel smokeing and losing power

Is the check engine light on? Any more specific info like year, make, model, what color the smoke is, how many miles, etc........ This could help to narrow down the problem other than the smoke which all diesels do with quick acceleration. You might get a quicker answer if you are more detailed!
