I have a 1995 Subaru Legacy Sedan and my check engine light is on. Sometimes when I pull out into traffic and push on the gas too hard then stop at a red light, my check engine light starts blinking and the car starts shaking. If I pull over and sit for a minute the car goes back to normal and drives fine after. If I don't let off the gas to let it change gear (and this is Auto trans) it shoots up to 4 or 5k rpms and the shaking starts again and the light starts blinking again, etc. Had the sens

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable and had to replace the battery a month ago. Today, after driving for 20 min on the highway I stopped at the store and shut car off. It would not start back up, it was completely dead. After letting the car sit for a couple hrs, it started right up, but then my battery light came on, and my dash lights and head lights got really dim and windows would not work, while the car was started. Then it would only go 5 mph. So I shut the car off and now it won't start agian

When i start the car it idles ruff and dies sometimes the check engine light is on. It dies while trying to drive when you let off the throttle. I have an 89 Buick lesabre. It usually takes my car anywhere from 3-10 tries before starting. Once it does start, it sputters, and sometimes dies if I don't hit the gas pedal. It's even died while driving. It barely wants to take off when I press the gas, it takes about 30 seconds to get to 40 mph, and now it doesn't want to go any faster.

2002 Rodeo starts revs up to about 3rpm then slows to about 1rpm then lopes then stops. During this process the check engine light blinks on and off. I used this service a month or so ago. The problem then was that the same car was starting and idling fine but when I put it in gear (either Reverse or Drive) the engine would die. I was told to clean the EGR valve. I did that and it ran until now with only a couple of episodes where the car died when I put it in gear. I cleaned the EGR v

After sitting for a day it did start back up and was blowing a little bit of black smoke and ran long enough to get it on a car trailer. We hooked it up to a c
