A dog ran in front of my car tonight and I hit it. I went to turn around and my 99 cabrio stalled when
backing into traffic and then wouldn't start. It turns over fine but acts like its not getting gas? Is their a
fuel switch or something or any idea why it won't start? Had to pay a tow truck to bring me home.
