  • One morning back in March 2009, my car would not start. I took it in for repairs and they said something about the computer shutting down. Occasionally the car would not start on the first try, but it would eventually start. The steering wheel light would come on as well as the info display, which would say move steering wheel or immobilizer active. when I took it to the shop they said that the steering column needed to be replaced. HUH? The car is no longer under warranty and I am being asked to pay $1,700 for parts and labor on a 3yr old car?!?

    my mom past few months been telling me stories of her sexural past one story about her father-in-law (my grandpa) had sex with her she say they lived little more than an hour from the airport they stop by my dads parents house to visit before droping him off at airport so when they went to leave the car wouldnt start so they took his parents car so she drop dad off came back to their house than tow truck took car to the shop she finds out the car wont be ready until tomorrow so she stays the night there she say the house was so warm she only sleep in her underwear and didnt use the sheets she said durning the night she woke up he had already removed her underwear and was eating her pussy she said he was so good she didnt want him to stop she said he ended up fucking her twice the bed sheets were wet from their sweaty bodies the next morning they picked up the car he told her he will pay for it if she didnt tell anyone they had sex

  • Recently every once in a while the car would start and stall, but it would always fire up on the second try. Yesterday, the car started fine and I drove it for a few errands, then when I got home I turned off the car, ran inside the house and came back out and my car won't start! It cranks, but the engine will not turn.

    It does have gas, but I checked the oil and the dip stick showed that it was bone dry (this annoys me because I just got the oil changed 2 months ago).

    In a seminary missions class, Herbert Jackson told how, as a new missionary, he was assigned a car that would not start without a push. After pondering his problem, he devised a plan. He went to the school near his home, got permission to take some children out of class, and had them push his car off. As he made his rounds, he could either park on a hill or leave the engine running. He used this ingenious procedure for two years. Ill health forced the Jackson family to leave, and a new missionary came to that station.

    Even if one spark of the plugs was not working the car would still start; the same goes with the coils. All the spark plugs or all the coils would have to break in order for the engine to completely fail.

My car wouldn't start this morning, please diagnose.

Many have found that automatic-equipped cars would not start in Park, but start in Neutral. Bill Watson suggested that the shifter linkage might be out of adjustment, veryslightly.
