Was driving alright, except when shifted into a gear from park, the engine would slow down a bit.
Power steering pump failed (giant fluid leak, covered half the engine), so I replace the pump and used electric part degreaser to clean the alternator. The drive belt was also replaced.
Now, when started, some times it will just stall after starting. Ususally the 3rd or 4th start attempt it will start (but bogs for a second). It does this in park and neutral. After starting and not stalling, it drives fine. Alternator and battery both check out fine. I would assume I loosed a wire or something during the pump replacement, but only the alternator wires and ignition wires run over by it.
The person who actually drives it said last night while driving it all the dash light came on and the headlights flickered. Also, she said it stalled when put into drive after idiling alright.
have the same problem?
