Not much information here- how many miles on the car- is the maintenance up to date according to the schedule in your owner's manual? does it start right back up again? If not, how long before it will start? When WAS the last time it had a tune-up? Are you out of gas

Could be several things: clogged fuel injectors, spark plugs, maybe even a battery issue. Hard to tell since you still haven't given us any real information to work off of. Have it checked out by a mechanic, if you can't pinpoint the problem.

possible you got some bad gas? possible the fuel filter is clogged? when was the last time it was changed? Look at racer's answer- it could be MANY things- you have to go down your list of maintenance items- a mechanic or friend will have to do the maintenance on it- that should make your car feel better

"and it started having a Hesatshen"??? What in God's name are you trying to say? Just PLEASE take it to a mechanic...You have NO idea what's wrong, therefore we can't help you either. I'm done with this question....Have a nice day.
