Car Engine Idles Very High

Our car automatic Toyota Corola 1999 was parked near the shop by my wife. When she started the car afterwards – it gave very high revs. She did not re-start it and switched to reverse. The car JUMPED backwards and hit another parked car.

Car Dies While I am Driving

I was driving my 1994 Volvo stationwagon at about 35
mph and it just stopped. The check engine light came
on first and then all other lights. after about 5
attempts to restart and then a push, it was able to
start back up. I took it to my mechanic and he
changed the fuel pump relay. I drove it home and
after a couple days it happened again. I took it back
and then he replaced the fuel pump and i got charged
$860.00 for the whole job.
