Hi all,

Yesterday my partner was driving her 2001 Holden Astra. It was driving fine, she reversed, then put it in drive and it just stalled. So she put it back in park to restart it, but it wouldn't start. She then tried to put it in neutral to push it out of the way, but it would not leave park. Eventually a security guard helped her and managed to get it into neutral and push it to the side. However the car still wouldn't start. 30mins later it started fine and she drove it back to Wollongong from Sydney with a few stops but no problems. What should I be looking for?

Cheers,
Ryan

Have you used fuel from seven eleven or woolworths ? My daughters Barina used to do a similar thing when she fuelled up from either of those two outlets .

Sounds like it could have overheated possibly ? usually a mechanic can plug in a device to check for any error codes which occured
