Good evening all!
I drove my 04 PT Turbo/GT with 42k miles around all day today with no
problems. This evening I backed it out of the garage and stepped on the gas
and it stalled.
At idle the car sounds great and idles at the normal 1k.
At all times it smells like burning gas coming out the exhaust.
If you give the car half gas (what i would consider normal to start moving)
the RPM will go down to 0 and the car will stall
If you give the car a tiny amount of gas the RPM will drop a little and the
car will drive forward.
If you continue to only give it light gas you can get the speed up to normal
driving speed and you still smell the burning gas.
If you are driving normal speed and press the gas down to accererate at a
normal amount you hear some crazy rattling up at the engine. Sounds like
rocks in a can.
If you put the car in reverse everything seems perfectly normal.
Temperature is in the normal range.
I did fill up earlier on today, could I have gotten some bad gas? Should i
run it till it runs out of gas and try putting new gas in the vehicle or is
that a waste of time?
