My 1990 Dodge Dynasty quit running last week. I was getting on the highway, and the car would NOT accelerate past 30 mph. I pulled over to the shoulder, and shut the car off, because it started shaking (and no, it was not because of all the cars flying past on the highway). After that, the car would not start again.
My brother came later that night and got the car started again, and got it back home, but now I try to drive it, and it won't even go above 15mph. I can press the gas pedal all the way to the floor, and nothing happens. The only way the car will move is if I "pump" the gas pedal repeatedly.
What could be causing this? Could it be my fuel filter? Also, the gas pedal seems a little loose. Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Any help to this single (and rather poor) mom would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
