Engine Performance problem
1998 Honda Civic 4 cyl Automatic noidea miles
Yeah, as you can tell I am chick who doesn't know her car too well.
But I digress.
Alright, so a while back, my friend offered to drive my car home from College for me, unfortunately, when she got out the door caught on the seat belt and the light was on for 12 hours.
Now, when I turn her on, she doesn't start.
Full Epic(post light-thing):
When I first thought her battery died, my friend jumped it for me.I drove around for ~15 mins, then turned it off and on again (like he suggested) and it died. So he jumped it again. And I drove it for 30 mins to home depot. Then it wouldn't start back up, I had to have these really cool mob guys jump it for me.
Then I drove home and left it there. A week later I decided to try my luck again, I turned it on and began to drive it down my street, then the battery started going on me so I pulled in to a random parking lot and let it die. My friend and her Boy came and jumped it for me, I drove it around for an hour, then went back home. A few weeks later, my roommate asked if she could use it for Black Friday, I agreed. When she went to start it up, it wouldn't even turn over. I tried and I got the same thing.
I am really distraught, I need this car for work and college. My car-savvy friend thinks its the alternator or the alternator belt, and not the battery at all.
Please HELP me! I need my baby back. Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!
have the same problem?
