2000 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 96000 miles
A month ago I had some general maintenance and suspension repairs done on my car.
When I picked up my car the next day, my service engine light came on, they did whatever and the light turned off. The next day it happened again. The fixed and then changed my thermostat because they notice it messed up. Two days later after eating dinner with my family we go to the car and it wouldn't start. It would crank like it wanted to start but nothing. None of the lights where dimmed and the radio was on. The car finally started after like 5mins. While on the highway the car started making a clicking noise and the car stalled out and turned off. It took a few minutes for the car to start but it did. This has been going on for a month. The shop that fixed my car has numerous possiblities what it can be but every day I talk to them they have something new to add that might causing the issue.
I have taken it to another shop and they told me the same thing. It can be a list of things from the fuel pump, ignition, coils, or even electrical and that will cost a lot.
One thing I have noticed is my car has the chip in the key and there is a security light that blinks when the key is in the ignition. At times the light would not be blinking and the car will not start. Other times while the key is in the ignition the security light will stay on (red light).
Can someone please help me figure out what can be the cause for my car stalling out, becuase no other mechanic is able to help me unless, I take the risk of paying for a fuel pump, then the issue continues and have to pay for another part and another part.
have the same problem?
