Car suddenly quits moving, although I am pressing the gas

Asked by Sep 12, 2018 at 11:01 PM about the 2006 Lincoln Zephyr

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Lincoln Zephyr. My ABS light has been on
for a while, but this has never caused a problem. All of a
sudden, one day I was driving and my car just quit
moving. No matter how little or much I pressed the gas,
the car would not go. Suddenly, it felt as if it would catch,
and then it would rev up and jerk forward. It would go for
a little, and then do the same thing. Eventually, after 2
times it started to run normal. What could this be?

Had a similar prob, check to see if the wires on your car battery. Make sure they are snug and secure to maintain proper connection. That’s all I got, hope this helps!
