Car broke down :[

Hey PZ!
So the other day I was driving and my car pretty much bogged out or that's how I can describe it felt. I got it back on and driving and it happened again; I was just down the street from my house so I tried it once more and got it the last bit there and it bogged out for the last time in my driveway.
After that I checked it and I realized neither of my radiator fans were on and the coolant was completely out! I tried to start it again and it wouldn't at all. So I let it sit for a couple days (happened 2 days ago) and I just tried it again and it tried to start but didn't seem like it would start. I tried it again in a few minutes and it did start; so I let it run for a little bit, then when I touched the gas a little bit it just like pretty much bogged out/turned off? Does anyone have any idea or suggestions of what this could be or what I should do?

Check your coolant for oil, and vice versa.

Re: Car broke down :[

Do you hear your fuel pump come on when the key is on? If it starts irregularly it may be due to a fuel issue. Things to research and check would be the main relay and fuel pump to start.

Thank you you guys, I will go through these (easiest-to-hardest) and see what I can find out and hopefully fix. I was already thinking some of these things but figured some more experienced feedback could be good.

Re: Car broke down :[

Thats what this forum is here for. Heck man, I've learned much of what I know about cars from seeing stuff around this forum and looking up things that I didn't know or didn't understand how it worked. Its a great place to learn.
