Question type: Maintenance & Repair

MY CAR WAS RUNNING FINE WHEN I PURCHASED IT TWO MONTHS AGO. THEN THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. NEXT MY CAR STARTED SHUTTING OFF WHEN I WOULD COME TO A STOP LIGHT OR SIGN OR WHEN I WOULD SLOW DOWN.

I HAVE SPENT MONEY ON THINGS THEY SAID IT COULD BE LIKE THE COIL PACKS AND THE MODULE THE COILS SIT ON. ITS THE ONLY CAR I HAVE AND I NEED TO GET BACK AN FORTH TO WORK. SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP.

sounds like a broken wire or B+ Circuit, no power to cluster, and no spark. ANy sensors show any 5 volt or 12 volt signal?
