Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

In gear and moving will it stall even if your applying throttle?

Does it stall in drive and reverse?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
38; yes
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Are you able to even get the rpms to increase with throttle application while in gear and moving?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I even got it into 2nd gear once or twice before it died.
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Does it restart easily?

Have you checked for any codes stored?

Any warning light on while running?

Yes this odd and hard to figure out.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It restarts with ease.
Had a warning sign come on a couple weeks ago. Something about an exhaust sensor. Was told I could leave it as long as my car was running well, which it was. They reset the light and it came back on a few days later and then shut back off after a few days. Had not had any warning lights until it died today. They are now on.
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 5 months ago.

Any way you can get it scanned to see which codes are stored now?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Well yeah, tomorrow. After I get it towed.
Expert:  Chris(aka-Moose) replied 5 months ago.

With the information you have been able to give me so far. I can not come up with a definite answer yet. I could opt out and let another try if you want.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No thanks. We'll just take it to a mechanic. Thank you for your effort.
