Car has problems with rough start and/or engine stalling within the first minute after starting it. Sometimes it coughs/chugs/rpms rev immediately when you start it. Other times when you pull out into traffic and push on the gas pedal the car will chug and completely stop moving as if it's run out of gas. It's only been a miracle that I have not be broadsided yet. I have owned the car since March of 2001 and this has happened around 4-5 times a week since then. I have brought the car in for service probably 6 times to try and correct the problem as it is a dangerous one, and each time has been unsuccessful. Nobody can recreate the problem in order to fix it. I have had my computer system updated, and most recently they pressure washed my fuel injectors in hopes that that would cure the problem. It only remains a matter of time before there's a bad accident.
