Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Buick Regal 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 90K miles
My car has had things going wrong lately - it is all electric - the electric door locks went out, my battery has had to have a jump twice in the past 6 months, but it has otherwise always started right up and performed fine - except lately after I've been driving upwards of 60 mph on the highway and I slow to turn and then accelerate, it starts lungeing like it's not getting gas. That is problem one. Problem two is today I ran an errand - all was fine. I went back to my car and it would not start - engine would not turn over - made a clicking at first, lights/radio were on but soon went out. A 20 minute jump/charge did not help. Lights will come on the dash, then go out, or one will come on and stay on long after the others went off; making clicking noises, etc when I turn the key. Is this electrical, probably? I will have to have it towed to a garage in the morning and would like to know if you have a "good" idea if it is electrical, the starter, the battery, the alternator. Thanks much.
have the same problem?
