    Car sat for 6 months,tryed to start and acted like fuel pump,so mechanic charged $419 for new pump and same thing still? Car starts then turns off after 1-2 seconds.. Sounds good then dies? Any Ideas? Thanks Again.

    I told my wife not to go to that shop,I was out of town when she needed the car...
    dont mind working on my car myself.. do I have to replace this "Immobiliser"?? who can remove my alarm? my car is only worth maybe $1600-$2000... (kids learned to drive in it) We just need it to run again. :) P.s Thanks
