My 1997 Altmia keeps stalling and putting when I stop or slow down. I changed the wires and spark plugs but it is still doing it. It cut off several times today. When I had the lights on the inside and...

sounds like your alternator could be going bad, most major autoparts stores will do a free battery, starter and alternator test, and tell you what your problem is. just make sure you ask for a full charging system test otherwise they will probably just check the battery (if the battery tests bad you wont get an accurate test on your alternator, so replace the battery then have them run the test again right away) If it is the alternator, dont let it go too long, a bad alternator can kill your battery, a bad battery can kill your alternator and starter, and a bad starter can kill a battery.

no promises that this is your problem but it is where I would start, there are other possibilites as well, such as a weak feul pump or clogged fuel filter, if your engine isn't getting enough gas it will dog down and stall. But like I said above I would start with the battery/alternator/starter test.

My van wont start

Alternator isnt the problem, just for charge. First test charge battery, will need 12v to start.

Additionally, I suggest check starter and starter solenoid (if you have one there), ignition switch and aftermarl or antitheft system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

Chevrolet want turn over

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you charge the battery. If the battery is weak, there will be no enough current to the starter to kick the flywheel. One good reason why the vehicle won't turn over.
If the battery is fully charged and still won't turn, then I strongly suggest that you replace the starter itself for it can be the one faulty.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Electrical problem...


before i is def not the alternator. the only job a alternator has it a car is to charge the battery when the engine is started it generates power for lights etc!!! by not starting does the engin turn atal? if the engin does not turn i would check the starter motor!! if the engine is turning i would check to see if there is a spark!! take a plug lead of and put a spark plug into it and turn the engine!! if there is no spark..then the distributor is gone!! if there is a spark them check your fuel pump!! disconnect fuel pipe and turn engine and if no fuel comes out it gone either!

hope iv helped you
