Check your battery and alternator . or you might have a gas leak. Not sure but it wouldn't hurt to try
Not smelling any gas at any time. I know when my car did this it was the coil pack, but i was also getting bad gas mileage. This car in question belongs to friend. His gas mileage isnt a problem. But i will definitely check the things you mentioned later today. I will letya know how it turns out. Thanks for your answer.
Try a tuneup!
I agree. It is not likely a power (electrical) issue or a gas leak. It does sound like a car that has had no maintenance and needs to have the trouble codes read and then receive a good tuneup plus possibly whatever else the computer indicates is wrong. Don't start randomly replacing parts until you know what is wrong. It may be something more serious that is not worth fixing on a car that old.
