I would lean towards an electrical problem, good possibitly that a harness or connection got loose as you hit that bump. Have you confirmed that the motor is getting fuel and spark? If yes check your computer's harness's as well as any and all electrical connections under the hood.

Hope this helps

When i accelerate it starts clicking a light click like if it hitting a thin sheet metal but this only happens when i come to a stop and accelerate at a higher speed nothing runs great

does it make a clicking sound when you make a tight turn into like a parking lot or street? and maybe only one direction? if so you need to get your drive/half shafts rebuilt or replaced because the boot protecting the joint has ripped or come loose and has let dirt in and grease out.

While driving I hit a speed bump at a low speed and the engine quit.

If the engine won't turn over, you have a starting
issue to diagnose, before the no run & fuel pump

We pulled into a parking lot and we slowed down for a speed bump and the engine stalled and stopped running and now it will not start back up. What is the problem, can you help us.

Did you hit the speed bump hard? Might be a reset for the fuel pump,but on your model I'm not sure where. Just guessing. don-ohio (:^)

1991 eagle talon will crank, but won't start up. 2 days ago I was driving home from work when i turned around in a parking lot and went to my parents house. about a half an hour there i needed to move...

That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

I have a 1998 Chevy Cavalier that I can not figure out why it won't start. The following list of parts are brand new: Battery, PCM, Park Neutral Safety Switch, Alternator, Ignition Switch, and finally...

Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

I am about to buy a 1997 Cadillac deville concours with 82k miles on it. The car seems to be in good condition. What should bear in mind before buying it. What should I check?? Is 4800$ a reasonable price...

$4800 is what Kelley Blue Book is suggesting private party in good condition.
First thing give it a good external look for any signs of accidents, such as dents or slightly different paint colors as there can be hidden damage in the suspension, frame or body.
Next start the vehicle and listen to how it runs. It should sound smooth with no rattling or ticking or other weird noises.
Also check to see if the check engine light is on or any other warning lights.
With the vehicle running, shift through all the gears twice and check transmission fluid with vehicle in neutral (parking brake on). Shut the vehicle off and check the oil.
Next give it a test drive. Try to go a few miles on the street, through parking lots (speed bumps & dips) and on the freeway. Listen for any abnormal sounds when shifting, turning, braking, and going over bumps.
When finished with the test drive take a look at the tail pipe before shutting it off there should be no smoke coming out.
These steps and common sense will give you a pretty good indication of the condition of the vehicle.

Vechile turns off while driving

Does it happen to occur when you maybe hit a bump? It sounds so much like a previous car I worked on he hs so many keys on the ring that when he hit a bump the weight of all the keys pulled on the switch and shut it off the only other way to find this is start the truck and start to shake wiring harnesses under the dash and under the hood it sounds like a loose connection in the primary ignition circuit
Please rate this post if it is helpful to you and contact me at if I can be of any further help in this matter
