View Full Version : car stalled and a few other oddities

02-23-2004, 03:18 PM
Earlier today i was sitting at a stop light and the car made sort of a hippicup (meaning the car shook abit and the rpms went up about 300-400 and then roughly 30 seconds later it just stalled out. I turned the car off and put it back in park and started it back up and it seemed fine. Also before that while I was driving my abs and brake lights both came on and then the next time I started the car the lights didn't light back up. Any ideas whats wrong, primarily with why the car stalled??
oh, by the way its a 99 with the 2.4 and ~68K miles.

Maybe have the car battery & alternator checked-out.

I dont know the 2.4's very well, but it could be an egr valve or fuel pump or something fuel related.
