Dunno how a bad starter would cause the car to stop working on the freeway, however.
You must publish more peer reviewed journals before giving Spectre more accreditation.Oddly enough, a lot of them were published in the hot rodding mags of the time - Hot Rod, Car Craft, etc., etc. JD Power (before they stopped allowing their data to be peer reviewed) and RL Polk were the original source of some of the studies. GM and Nissan also had internal studies; I believe GM's turbo studies were part of the big one on reliability, the one where they determined that the statistically best startup & warmup method was start, idle for 30 seconds, then drive away briskly. The name escapes me at the moment.
Yes. What should I check? Relays?Lots of cars set the check engine light on when the engine stalls for mechanical reasons but no code gets stored. Lots also set the light on when the computer drops below critical voltage while running - and again, no code gets stored.
