hello,

what question did you want answered about this?

I am not sure how to reply to your statement "Not sure what to do"

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

What do you think the problem might be to the issue of what is happening to my car after the battery was replaced. Keeps shutting down and I hear a air sucking sound when I push on the gas pedal

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated on a sunday evening. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

the most likely cause would be an air leak / airflow sensor issue, or failed crankcase vent valve for those symptoms.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
