Out of the blue after turning my car off and parking for 20 minutes, my car would not start. It was trying to start, but just didn't turnover. I sprayed the spark fluid into the air filter area, and still no start. I kept trying and still no start. After sitting for a few days I jump the battery, turned the key and the car started. I put fuel line antifreeze in the tank as a precaution. Let it run for about an hour with no problems. I turned the car off and it wouldn't start again. Same type of close to starting sounds, but no start. Again, after a couple of days, I tried to start it and it did start. I let it run for about 5 hours believing that I had bad gas. Ran with no problems, I stepped on the gas pedal and it turned off. I tried to restart, and got the same problem all over again. I changed the gas filter as suggested by a friend, but still, same almost starting noises, but no start. When I do get it started and let it run, as soon as I step on the gas pedal it shuts off. Can someone PLEASE help me address this problem. The closest shop to me ALWAYS writes me up an estimate for $1000 or more even if all I need is air in the tires. So, I would like to get an idea of what the problem could be. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!
have the same problem?
