The car been running good for sometime now so this came outta nowhere.
About 3 week ago I started my car drive across the street to the bank and the car just shut down while Idling. No light dimming, just the rpm's dropped and the engine shut off. All the light were bright so I don't think it was the battery. Tried jump starting it, that failed. Tried Quick Start and that failed. It would crank fine it all cases but just wouldn't turn over.
Both the Alternator and the Starter have been replaced this year.
I pushed the car back across the street to my building and it sat there for about 1.5 weeks before I tried to start it again. When I did, the engine managed to turn over and was going for about 10 seconds before it died and wouldn't start again.
Someone told me it might be the DME that failed, so I took it out and disassembled it to look at the components. Everything looked fine and I put it back into the car about a week later. The car started fine and I was able to drive around for 2 days, until it died down the street again
I let it sit for about 2 hours then came back and it started and I drove home where it died and has been sitting for a few days.
Again the engine cranks fine but sometimes i hear a whiny noise coming from the drivers side below my feet.
I'm not against taking it to a RMP, but I'd like to see if I can fix this myself.
Anyone experienced this before and know the possible causes?
