Question: My car turns over but won't keep running.

I can drive my car as long as I want but when I shut it off it will turn over but won't start. To get it running I have to give it a lot of gas and the whole car will start to shake. If I let off the gas it will die so I have to constantly give it has to get in gear. Once I start driving for a little bit it's fine. I think that it might be stuck in a gear since my transmission sometimes slips up but I'm not sure.

See if you can communicate with the ECU and retrieve any codes.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
