Why does my car suddenly quit running abruptly after about 2 minutes?
Without notice,this Buick Century just began losing power and quitting after
I bought it.It may run for 45 minutes in idle,without an issue,or it might just
crank and not start at all..OR it might run for a minute or 2.Sometimes it
sounds like its backfiring.I did notice I have a large rat nesting up under the
hood,and I think I found the chewed wires and repaired them,but it still
hasn't solved my issue.I need some easy fix type suggestions. I'm pulling my
hair out lol.Thanks.
Two things that always fail on these cars, one is the ignition module it will work cold but when it warms up it quits working, the other is the crank sensor right at the vibration damper, and that is a bit of a bear to replace.
Thats about what I figured.I was thinking that its down to the ignition control module or a MAF sensor,Crank sensor. I cleaned the maf and it seems ok.I cleaned the egr valve...I checked the fuel line(getting plenty fuel)..Checked the fuel pump relay.This car is starting to feel like a basket case. Ugggghh! I may just go ahead and take it to a mechanic and HOPE i dont get hurt too bad.This thing may be more than I can bite off.Was gonna be my daughters first car..so she and I are very disappointed.
Anyone know a good mechanic that is reasonable around Abilene Texas? I'm on a fixed income and need a minor miracle here.Thanks.
