First issue: Battery. How long has it been since you've replaced it? Are you able to jump the car with cables?


Happens like that- one day I'll be walking around just fine, like every other day, then one day I'll just drop dead on the sidewalk! Happens to the best of us-

This may be related to the antitheft system. The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Normally when the injectors are turned off, the car will run for a second or two, and then stall. When it's the security locked out starter, you won't even hear a click when you turn the key. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. &

    My car started over heating. After a little better look I replaced the water pump and the thermostat. The car still over heats and for some reason won't start after over heating until it cools.
