Hi, I'm new to the board as of 10 minutes ago and
have a question for anyone who might know what my
problem is. The coolant light on my dash was lit
so I checked the levels and found it was low. I
added about 8 oz. of antifreeze/water, ran the
motor for 10 minutes and everything seemed fine.
About an hour later I as I was driving down my
street the car started to loose power and sputter.
It died but I was able to start it again to get around a corner and off the street. It died again
and skipped and sputtered as I tried to start it.
The car only has 29,000 miles on it but unfortunately I am not the original owner.
Does anyone have a clue what the problems is?

Unless you were really low on coolant I don't think your coolant is a problem. Sounds to me more like an electrical problem like ignition or something of that nature. Loose plug wire maybe. Its very hard to say without looking at the car myself.

Thanks Jason, I have since found out that I had a bad
fuel pump.
My little red pony is all better now. :)
