What could be wrong if a car just stops running and you have to let it sit for about an hour?

Could be a fuel system problem. First thing is to replace the fuel filter and then have the a fuel pressure check done. Also some electrical parts will fail after they get hot. An engine requires 3 things to run. Fuel, air, spark. Find out which of these you do not have when it will not start.

When I jump started my 2006 Honda Civic hybrid it was fine for 2 days but now abs brake system and brake light are lit. Can they be reset or do I need new abs modulator?

First check the brake fluid level. If it's low or empty you need brake work. If it's not low or empty have the ABS scanned for codes. The codes will help diagnose what the problem is. Once the problem is fixed the lights will reset themselves.

Ive had that problem. It seemed to be my intake system wasn't hooked up correctly (bought it with an after market system which was held with duct tape) Check air flow. See if the gate is opening correctly or it could be the airflow meter sensor. This is just a possibility. Good luck

90 model Plymouth acclaim 2.5 motor In park it idles good and when you put it in drive it dies or it doesnt have any power and when you put it in reverse it dies out What could the problem be?

Mass air flow sensor may be bad. Idle may be low caused by leaking or broken vacuum lines or dirty clogged throttle body and air filter. Idle air control valve may be sticking. I would try to first try to put engine in drive after you have removed the air cleaner box and filter. F. Garay

Re7car pileup does it matter that the car was illegally changing a tire in the far left lane and did not have enough room a truck had to swirve around it crashed would it be the parked cars fault?

Yes, in Canada it would be the person's fault who was changing the tire. It's up to the driver to use flares or at least lights to put behind and in front of the vehicle to warn other drivers. Also, with a flat tire you can still go a few feet without damaging the rim of the wheel and could have ...

It sounds like your alarm system has a kill switch on it. You might want to check the wiring system. Not all colors on an alarm system wires are universal. If it came with instructions, check the wiring colors to make sure they match up.

vaccum leakCheck your vacuum lines for any hissing. If someone can correct me, There should be a vacuum line routing sticker under the hood. Also check your air hose from the air box to the throttle body. I had this problem on my Sunfire and I needed an intake hose and it was fixed. Good luck.

My Dad's car has sat for one year because he died I bought a new battery so I could start it upn occasion because it is not registered to be driven yet The battery is now dead but takes a boost.?

How often do you start it? Newer cars should be started at least once a week to maintain a charge on the battery (the computer drains a little all the time to save its memory). Have the battery fully charged, then try starting it once a week to see if it will work fine then. Good Luck!!!
