Okay, so like 20 minutes ago I leave the house to go to the store. I make it 3 blocks, come to the stop sign and stop. Leave the stop sign, get through first and second gear, shift to third and the car bogs down and dies. Now it won't start for the life of me.


I've checked all the fuses in the dash panel on the drivers side that would relate to this, and they're fine. And I'm not sure what the problem would be.

Any help would be great, since I'm totally clueless right now.

Really not enough info. in this post to say what it could be. The car stalled after leaving home. Could be the coil going bye-bye if you had a lot of misfiring going on which caused the stall. Or it could be timing belt. Really you need to check for engine codes before more can be said.

Not to be a smart ass, but did you run out of gas??
