We get this problem frequently. A customer will tell us that their car is running just fine then it stalls out. They start it up again and it runs fine until the next time it stalls out. And the process repeats itself until the customer is fed up and they come and see us.
What can cause this? Many things, but usually the reason for this type of behavior from a vehicle is a bad fuel pump. Eventually, the car just won’t go anymore when the pump is completely done.
If you are experiencing this, bring your car in ASAP. Not only is it frustrating but it can be downright dangerous if you stall out at an intersection or on a busy road. If you live in Essex, Burlington, South Burlington, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, Shelburne and anywhere in the State of Vermont be sure to contact Handy’s Service Center for all your auto repair needs!
