Question: Why is my pickup cutting out and dying?

Hi, I am having problems with my 1995 Ford F-150. It acts like it gets power then it doesn't for a split second, and does this repeatedly. It was fine all of today until I fueled it up. Then the problem started after about a 1/4 of a mile, and did this fof the next 3-4 miles, and stopped. But then, just as I was about to pull into my driveway, it just died completely, no power to anything. The brakes locked up and the ABS light came on, plus the check engine light that's been on for quite some time now. (Don't worry I only use it to drive to school about 6 blocks away usually) It wouldn't start for about 15-20 seconds, and, like the other three times it's happened, once it turned over it didn't even take a second to start back up again. Please help?

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 ...
