99 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE 150,000 miles 3.7 L size engine

1. Tires are squealing but not all the time most times when traveling 45+ mph
2. Sometimes car will not start at all. The headlights, dashboard lights and radio still work, so I assume it is not the battery. I put the key in the ignition and it just clicks over-nothing else not even a stall.
3. Also occasionally when I am stopped at lights when I relaese off of the brake and step on the gas pedal the car turns off completely but again all the lights and radio stay on.

Please help I just bought the car barely three months ago! Thanks! :)

1. The alignment could be off. The tires could be bad. Have the alignment checked as well to see if there are other problems.

2. You say it clicks, where does it click. By the starter? If it does the starter has to be checked.

3. How long has it been since it had a tune up?

You say it stalls at a stop light, this must mean once in a while you can get it started. Check the battery connections.

I apprieciate all your help. Since your advice I have sanded off the corrosion on the battery connectors and have had no problems since! I have had no need to check the starter for after I had fixed the battery problem there have been no more isseus with it cutting off or not starting. As far as the tires, I got the alignment checked but the mechanic said it was not the problem and that I needed new brake pads. He said that when the brake pads wore down there was a safety warning pin that when the pads wore down too much would rub against the tires and cause the squeeling sound. I will also be getting a tune-up as well as a fluids changed(while I am there). If I have more issues though I will indeed check the starter. I REALLY THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME. If I have any more questions I know the people to rely on! :Mrgreen:

I am happy you found the problem with the starter as far as the tires squeeling. Are the tire squeeling or do you hear metal rubbing. What the mechanic was talking about is that there are metal tabs on the brakes when they get low they rub against the rotor making a metal rubbing sound.
