My car won't drive
I got in my car the other night and it wouldn't start .
So the next morning i got a jump from my
neighbor. And it started , but it was driving crappy.
And my battery kept dying . so i took it to auto zone
& got it tested . they said the battery wasnt saying
it was a bad battery but it needed charged. So they
tested the alternator and said it failed . am i bought
a new one ! Now my car will start but every time i
try to pull off it puts and barely wants to pull off .
please help me !!! I need my car
if the alt. dies or has problems the "batt" light will come on , if it runs crappy then there are codes you have to scan and autozoo should have done that . If you can't do the work then unfortunately you have to find an honest mech. Or do the work yourself .If it was easy everyone would do it .
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "pull off" and "puts." Can you elaborate?
It hesitates at first then shoots off when i push all the way down on the petal.
Its wasnt doing this until my alternator went up
Well you might have multiple things going on, first a bad alternator, undercharged battery, and the hesitation, which could mean your car needs a good tune up or clean the throttle body. When you press the accelerator all the way to the floor, it sets a "clear flood" mode, meaning it stops sending gas to the injectors or throttle body in order to let the engine clear itself of excess gas. If you are running "too rich" (too much gas in the air-fuel mix) it can be from dirty sensors. I don;t know how "hands on" you want to be with your car, you may want to take it somewhere for a proper tune up (plugs, wires, coils) and clean/replace all filters and sensors.
bad combo... if you have a very low battery and a bad alternator=no juice for all the electrical stuff that makes the car go.Try running it with a fully charged battery
