Earlier thought its battery issue( old one was 4+ yrs old), so I replaced the battery but problem persists. All lights and indications are fine when I on the ignition. Any idea what else can be checked before taking it to mech.?
If that is an MPFI model check for the failed sensors in the air intake and another problematic thing called oxygen sensor near the exhaust.
Another thing to watch out is keep the car in idle and turn on headlights ac and evn the hazards or whatever electricals you can, Look for tell-tale vibration and engine rpm variations, if that happens check those alternator diodes and brushes.
When was the last time the silencer is checked for choke up. Once heated it works but when cold the choked up exhaust can act weird.
The the easy ones like PCV valve and spark plug connectors.
well nice to know the problem is solved But answered this old thread on seeing it, because these are most of the time the only issues with this car and well just to add the top bushes on the shocks/sturts or whatever you call it, gets saggy and can result in steering becoming a little odd to handle.
