New member, Hopefully new question.
My wife just bought an '06 cobalt 2D manual trans. Basic c ar. No bells or whistles.
Today I was drivin g it and went to a convenient store. Shut it off and went in.
Came out and car started but rpm's fluctuated from 1100 or 400. Ran rough.
Seemed like it went from 4 to 2 cylinders. Got it home (only a mile away) and shut it off. Tried to restart it and nothing. Check engine light and I guess it's the security light flicker fast but nothing on the key. No starter or anything. This car only has 40,000 miles. Has run like butter since we got it a few months ago.
Only thing I can think of is since we bought it at a criminals car lot, (express credit auto) that their system shutdown feature they add to it malfunctioned. Am I right? They are closed today and it's our only car.
BTW yes they are paid up. lol
Any and all help is deeply appreciated.
