Hi, My Name is***** have over 20 years experience repairing vehicles. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating please let me know.

Have there been any recent repairs to vehicle? Jump started for any reason? Do You have access to a scanner?

Do you have a security light on?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
do u think something could be clogged?
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

A fuel filter would be a good cheap thing to try. It may cause problems if it is plugged.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what else could it be if that doesnt solve the issue? I just know that the catr ran much better in fact excellent after i put 2 cans of gum out in in the last 30 days and been using 93.
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

There are lots of choices. I would need to know if you have any codes and what they are as just a starting point.

the check engine is on but i dont have a scanner. this just happened 2 hrs ago when i was trying to go to work. Should i try fuel filter first?
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 2 years ago.

No. Read the codes first. Stop at a parts store most do for free.
