I had an exasperating moment yesterday with that car. Drove a friend to an
appointment, and back. got into his driveway, and we chatted for about one
minute. Care engine just stopped. NO thump, no racing, no nothing, it just
stopped. I tried to start the car, the motor turned over, but wouldn't
start. After about five minutes it started fine, ran for about a minute,
then stopped, just as easily/quietly as if I turned off the key.
I left the car at his house for about three hours, had a ride back to the
car, and drove it home, about three miles. No problem.
Is this a fuel pump problem?
One thing about this vehicle. I don't drive it very often, and when I do,
it is usually short trips, less than three miles, or even two.
Occasionally, I will drive it forty to fifty miles, let it sit for an hour
or so, and drive back.
I change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes
first. Usually the 6 months. I had changed the air filter about two months
ago, and the old one really wasn't dirty, fiber was white and you could see
through it. About the only problem I have with this car is that the air bag
light and/or the ABS brake light will intermittently come on. That can
happen for a day or two, then not do it for the next three or four weeks.
Thanks in advance for any guidance on the engine stalling
or the ABS/Airbag light..
