My 91 corsica 4cyl 2.2 has started stalling at traffic lights. Restarts but stalls at next light. After a few restarts it won't start until I leave it for about 10 minutes. When running in park, engine surges and dies back a few times and then runs smooth. Now it sometimes won't start if I shut it off while it's warm.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am SE and it has not been running for some time now. A few weeks ago it wouldn't start and just locked the key. We thought it was a battery problem but that was not the case. We had to leave it for a few hours then when we came back late at night it started again. We figured it was the starter so we had it changed and the old one was rusted and falling apart. I went to leave and the battery light came on so they checked around a little more. Anytime after that for awh

My 1997 buick lesabre runs fine for about 10 minutes then dies while im driving, i can wait a few minutes and it usually starts back up unless its being stubborn then i might have to leave it for a few hours. the engine turns over but it wont start so i dont know if its the VATS but the little waiting time seems like it might be the VATS, also my security light stays on when the car is running.

It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more oft ... 1997 Buick LeSabre

Similar issue I had my friend ''jump start'' my car after the ignition failed to turn on whatsoever. I didn't even hear so much of a click. After a few minutes, we heard a click as we tried to start up the car, but it would not. It seems like the gas gauge is still receiving power (it should be shut off when the car is), and the clock is still on. Power windows, locks, lights, and overhead lights will not turn on either. I did not leave anything on in the 6 hours I had it parked, so I don't know

I have a 50cc Direct Bikes scooter and I leave it outside work for 6/7 hours each day. When I start it up, there is no acceleration for a least 10 minutes. It coughs and splutters once started and will not exceed 5mph. Then suddenly after 10 minutes or so it accelerates away as if nothing was wrong. I am concerned that this problem will get worse and I won't get home one night. This seems to happen when it is really cold outside ( I'm in Scotland).

I have a 2001 Ford Escape and recently it has been blowing both the break light and hazard/flashers fuses. It started with the break light fuse leaving me stranded in a drive through for an hour because I could not get the car out of park (I've since learned about the manual override for the interlock solenoid). We figured out the problem and put in a new fuse that blew immediately, and then we put in another and it got me home. It worked for a few days, but then on my way home one night I notic

Hi, This morning I tried to start my 2001 Lexus es300-nothing, no cranking. A few of the dash lights flashed on briefly. I left the car alone for a couple of hours, went out and tried to figure it out. The lights were brighter and when I put the car into neutral, all of the dash lights came on. I put the car back into park and it started immediately. I let the car run for 45 minutes, turned it off and it instantly restarted. I did this several times. About 3 hours later, I tried to start the car
