Customer Question

I have a 2007 Dodge caliber and it starts and then motor dies.
JA: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?
Customer: Hi Moose! Yes lights turn on and battery has a good charge
JA: Are you fixing your Caliber yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: We are trying to repair/diagnose problem on our own - checked battery, did add oil because when tow driver towed it home he mentioned it may be low on oil - it does have gas
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Was running and just shut off on it's own -- we are in Ohio and temp is in 40's
