The car ran fine when I got it. Then it would stop starting. I heard a "whizzing" sound from somewere in the engine. No power to windows headlights or stereo. Only happened after I drove it. Sometimes it would sit for hours and finally start again and other times I would have to leave it over night. Brought to 3 different mechanics. No codes at all. Brand new battery, new fuel filter, ran lucus fuel filter cleaner and seafoam thru it. The last mechanic said that he tested the cam sensor and the crankshaft sensor and got nothing. Ran fine after that until today when I died at the bank. Started up about 20 minutes later and got home. In the driveway I started it and turned it off. On the third time I heard the whizzing/scraping noise again and it stalled. Wont start again. Sometimes it doesnt start other times it sputters and stalls. When it sputters and I put my foot on the gas it just sputters even worse. The rpms move from about 700 to 1200 in idle and if I turn the wheel at a dead stop the battery meter goes down and lights dim. I dont know what to do with it anymore.
