Im pretty new to this forum, I had posted a message before about my car randomly stalling when driving,, please see post http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...pic.php?p=5155
That problem has not been fixed, but was convinced maybe it was the crankshaft position sensor by a member on this site. This past weekend I had the engine coolant flushed and refilled. Since I drove about 200 miles, when I noticed yesterday the car was acting a little strange, I was hitting the accelerator and it felt like it wasnt kicking in, or the RPM'* were going but the car wasn't pushing with it. The check engine light then came on, where I was a block from my house. I pulled over and open the hood, to see no visible problems, but I had noticed the engine coolant reserve was pretty much completely emptied. (the engine was not running hot on the gages though, ever) So I filled up the reserve and went to start the car and it would not start. I had it towed by AAA :( to MIDAS, I go to school in Philadelphia, and I this was the closest place for me. They were not finished yesterday with diagnostics, but they said the starter is dead.
Can anyone think of why the car would be randomly stalling and having a hard time starting, is it the starter?? or maybe its the starter and something else, and the starter was coincidental? throttle position sensor? crankshaft positon sensor? my luck? any thoughts would be much appreciated... also is there anyone in the philadelphia area that could suggest a mechanic ? I have a warranty and they said I can go to a place of choice. $100 deductible for me
I have a 97 SE 65,000 miles on it
