Customer Question
I’m having problems starting...

I’m having problems starting my 2005 Buick rendezvous. When I start it I have to press on the gas pedal. Sometimes when I’m at at stop light the rpm gauge goes up and down then it just shut off. But I can start it right back up by putting my foot on the gas pedal. I already replace the the wires, coils, basically like a tune up but I’m still having the same problem. What can it be?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

There’s no lights I took it to auto zone and it said it had a multiple misfire but that’s why they said I might need a tune up but it wasn’t that.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Rendezvous yourself? What have you tried so far?

No a mechanic. Tune up
