About a month ago my car broke down at a friends house shortly after I had purchased a new battery. After having it looked at we replaced the alternator as well. It ran for a couple of hours before needing a jump to get us back home. 5 minutes away from our apartment it became clear if I pressed the gas too much the car would stall out, we slowly coasted home and haven't been able to get the car to start on it's own since. Although I'm not sure the issue I think it to be electrical. My instrument cluster hasn't been working since before the first battery replacement. Also my headlight will turn of after a minute or so.
