Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
ok so heres the story I have an old 98 ford taurus automatic v6. I just put a new starter on it, the alternator is about 4-5 months old and I put a new battery on it (same time as starter).
well it ran fine for about 8 days now here is what it does.
it'll turn on and run fine,
but after about 1-2 mins the radio shuts off
then the tachometer and speedometer goes down to zero
then the car "putts" a little bit then it shuts off
when I try to start it again it clicks alot like a dead battery.
but the battery is brand new.
Please help what do you think it could be
i think my ex wife might have cut something (what do you think it could've been ( I am now a single dad with 2 small kids, in the military stationed in guam).I need help and fast. Thank you I have searched everywhere to no avail please help.
have the same problem?
