I don't know if it is just me, but every time I have a car problem and I am away from home, some dude always takes advanatage of me. I try to teach myself ahead of time so when I take it to the shop I can feign knowing so the bill is more $39 instead of $500
so for all you car savvy persons out there, please help if you can.. here is my problem..
I have had many problems with my car, the recent one was with the 'pulley' which I had tightened at midas, they can't figure out anything else that is wrong with it...
today while driving home, it just stiffened and went dead, I can't explain it sort of like it were having a seizure.. I put my blinkers on and pulled to the side. All the red lights came on my dash board, I put it on park and it made the most awful noise and it was still moving that I thought I was doomed for an accident with the car in front of me. Anyhow I turned it off and gave it a five minute rest, then restarted it, and it started fine, but while driving it, it felt kind of heavy, like I had it on D1 or D2..
I have been browsing the web and the closest I came to, was this
so now, I am not sure if it were an isolated incident, I can say this happened before before I tightened the pully, or am I to look forward to it stopping tomorrow while I am in the middle of the highway?
I don't know if the car make makes a difference? but I have a nissan pathfinder..
any help would be really appreciated.. thank you
