When I turn the key the car will start and it will rev up to a higher rpm like most cars do. Unlike other cars when the rpms come back down to idle my car shuts off. Any ideas? Also, before it stopped running when I would drive it I would hear it making an awful clicking noise. Someone told me it could be the drive shaft.

Do you
have the same problem?
