Being stranded sucks

Car died. Again. And no one can tell me what is wrong with it. At this point they are just guessing.

I'm missing work tomorrow to try to get answers on why my car will sometimes start, and why it just sometimes won't.

Sucks!!

That does suck my last car was like that I had to get rid of it. No one knew what was wrong. When it started it drove great and then it just wouldn't start until it did again.. lol  I just couldn't deal anymore.

I hope they figure yours out!

Same exact experience with my old car! It was a Ford. We finally sold it & bought something else.

I REALLY hope someone can get it figured out. we had a similar problem and ONE of our cylinder coils was misfiring. the dealer told us they had to replace them all, but we finally found a shop that could tell us which it was and replaced just the one and we haven't had problems since (that was a LONG time ago!)
