I was driving to work today and my car stalled.
Luckily I was only a few blocks from home. The car started dinging and the check guages light came on and the oil pressure guage was all the way down. I couldn't get it restarted at first. I checked the oil, it was about 2 quarts low. After about 10 minutes it started and ran fine. I got it home and took the truck to work and started the car again when I got home about 5 hours later and it seems fine. Any ideas what'* up with that? I just changed the oil about 1 month ago, and I don't think I have a leak. The car is hard to start sometimes, sometimes it takes two or three turns of the key. Battery is only a few months old, new plugs, new wires, and replaced one coil. I think the alternator is going, but could that be the problem? Battery holds it charge while driving, so I don't know what is going on. Had the charging system checked like three times, and one reading said the alternator was weak.
