Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Sounds like you may have a clogged fuel filter or a bad fuel injector. You need to make sure the air filter is not clogged and search for vacuum leaks on the engine. If it dies throughout the driving range and at stops, it could be a map sensor. You need to test for fuel pressure and make sure it is correct. If the fuel checks out, it may be a spark plug/coil, distributor cap, coil pack, something in the ignition system. You need to also check your pcv valve, it may need changed.

The wrong antifreeze was put in my car. It had gotten gummy and I had to get a power flush so it would stop over heating. Since then my heater has stopped working which i figure the heater core will need...


If I may ask, what color was the antifreeze that you took out of your car? If the coolant is not actually overheating, the coolant temperature sensor could be bad. Check the routing of the serpentine belt. It is possible to get the belt on wrong and turn the water pump in the wrong direction, which would cause overheating because the coolant would not be circulating as it should. That would also prevent the heater from working since the coolant would not be flowing through the heater core.

Car wants to turn off unless i accelerate it


try replacing your transmission fluid to ease up the drive, might as well try replacing the sparkplugs for better fuel burning.

Stops while driving


this is usually due to a dirty throttle body. just beware if you do try to clean it you will need to preform the idle relearn procedure. this does work, ive done it personally.

A. Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning Procedure.
1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds (how would you know if you get it right?)


B. Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound (i never get this right because i never heard anything)

C. Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It's best to time with a watch/clock.

1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops
blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11 Wait 20 seconds
12Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications. (this is fine because SES light lets you know if you did it right the way it blinks)
