Hi I think your problem is connected with your Air mass meter if you look at your engine from the n/side it is situated just after the air filter box it has a spring clip at one end a flat metal thin box with a lead attached and a jubilee clip at the other end. Hope this helps my 4.0 lt x300 did the same thing

Husqvarna 2548 trans axle stop moving after short time of moving i let it sit for short time moves again then stops again any common problems i should check/

check for oil level in the drive. There may be a problem in the drive pump or drive motors/ gearbox. If this is a mower with a hydrostatic drive then it may be the hydrostatic drive as they do fail on a regular basis.

YnthiaaI can't start my car .The lights radio, speedometor went of as I was driving the car. Now when I try to start it ,it has a ticking sound and won't start

most probably based on your description your battery has completely failed-may have a sudden, internal short. Put a voltage meter on the battery posts, if it is less than 12 volts, you need a new battery. A digital meter only costs $15 at any decent hardware store or retail auto supply store.

Loose power

The ticking I have no idea. Losing power and sputtering could be a number of problems, bad wiring harness, a short, a sensor, bad injectors, clog in a fuel line perhaps.

Scan it first. I suspect you might be having fuel related problem.

1998 Hpnda Passport, the engine will start but not move forward

wow looks like your gear box just blew up
is it an auto? my guess it is an auto.
one of the cars herd did the same thing
with this car tho the over drive stopped working (4gear) so he was luckily and dident have to pay a sent as he never went over 100kph
this may be the same with you
if it is an auto put in into 1 or low then try to take off if this doesnt work you may need a new auto gearbox
