2000 Mercury Grand Marquis ....... My car sounds and feels like wants to shut off.
It started yesterday - I was leaving a friends house and was about 2 lights away from home when i felt this weird jerk and then i heard a clink and something fell from the car. I drove slowly the rest of the way home with no over heating or nothing.
Then I popped my hood and one of my heater hoses was bad. Well, not the hose but the PVC valve from filter hole was melted from inside. I had duck taped it and it's been fine for the last 6 months, but that had now come off.
I have an aftermarket intake from K&N, so I took all of it off, checked the hoses, and put it back in. I used the same old melted PVC valve but no tape - instead used a grommet.
I turned the car on and it kinda sounds like battery is dead but I put in reverse and it sounds and feels like it wants to shut off. I put it in drive and same thing so I turn it off quick. I don't want to do anymore damage than there is already...
Oh and I almost forgot right before the jerk and the thing that fell from car I put gas in the car then this happened 20 minutes later. I use a lot of gas booster(?) bottles you find at gas station.
I hope that helps diagnose my problem. Please someone help, this car is all I have. I love my car. Thank you for your time.
