Car hiccups usually less than 1 second while driving. Other times from driving it'll stall, then die, for 5-10 minutes. Engine light flickers on for however long the time is and when the engine starts again it will turn off.
Other times it simply won't start from the lot. This is never the first time I start it up. It's always my second or third trip start up. For both times the engine will crank and try to start but won't.
Due to the engine light turning off I haven't been able to see trouble codes. My dear mum luckily managed to stall it at an Autozone and only remembers the code reader saying "Loose Connection."
New Battery and cat; I think the alternator and starter are fine because some days it works perfectly fine. No problems. It seems like a psuedo random time bomb of minor to serious engine stalling.
Could it be 2 problems - one for driving one for starting? From your site I thought it might be something with the circuty for the ignition? Just wondering what I tell the mechanic to look for.
Thank you for your time!
