So it wasn't because it was out i started the car up and everything was fine drove about 40 miles or so stopped the car for 5 mins started it up drove another 2 mins then shut car off. Was away for like 40 mins and car didn't start the first time. I think my car is dying....

It's hot here man...c'mon...no car should need any warm up here in Florida, especially right now.

Second Chance, whats the gas level?
And also the battery. I haven't checked my car yet, but someone was telling me about a new car they got that ran off the battery!

Meaning if you disconnect the battery the car dies, most cars u can disconnect the battery and the alternator will keep it running.

guys must i remind you all about the laws of physics, i mean we all know the engine oil all drips to the pan. When you start the car up "Warm up" is to allow the engine to lubricate itself. Im a firm believer in letting a car warm up before you go rag on it SPECIALLY A TURBO CAR!!! cant stress it anymore

I try and not rag on my car till engine temp is about 200. But i'll still cruise or drive slow before that I wouldn't consider going less than 10 MPH ragging. Or just starting the car
