my car's not working

Hello! Something happened with my Ford. The engine began to run unevenly, appeared to vibrate, and the oil consumption increased. Has anyone encountered this problem? What is the reason?

Hmmm...

...no year, model, or powertrain information...

...and it's the person's first post.

Gosh, nothing suspicious about this at all!

If GM can justify Buick, and if Honda can justify Acura, we can damned well have Mercury back.

Re: my car's not working

I had a similar issue with a GMC Denali PU. I know this will sound strange, but my problem turned out to be one little fuse. I am not sure, but believe it was the transmission control module. Just check your fuse box for a faulty one. It took the dealer most of a day to find this & then it was just luck. They didn't charge me for the time & had used their laptop most of that time searching for the problem.

I'd take it to a local mechanic or dealership.
