In the old days it might have been a sticking choke. I would ask her whether the "check engine" light came on, and if so a check of what code it reads will be a big help in finding the problem.

I remember a school bus driver that would bring her bus to the shop because something was wrong with it. Her fellow driver always followed her out, because it was a ruse for them to go shopping.

Once she brought it in and said the transmission wasn't shifting right. The shop foreman drove it and said your right, it's not shifting right, But if you'll wait about 5 minutes we can fix it. He got a mechanic to come into the part room and handed him a new part in a box and a matching used part which the mechanic put in his pocket. He went out a crawled under the bus, tapped around with a wrench, slipped the new part in his pocket and put the used one in the box.

He came out a pronounced it fixed. The driver asked what was wrong with it. He pulled the old part out of the box and said he replaced that part.

It was a starter solenoid off a Ford bus. Her bus was a Chevy.... And she never knew the difference.

Another time she asked me how I kept my bus so shiny. I told her I washed it in ammonia. Of course, that stripped ALL the wax she had put on her bus off of it... Devil

Same thing happened to my first wife. She had forgot to put gas in the tank.

When I was but a young lad in the early 60's I heard my Mom and Dad having a terrible argument. It was over how much Mom was spending on gas.

Being the type person my Dad was he insisted on seeing Mom's driving habits.

They got in the car, Mom put the keys in the old Ford Galaxy pulled the choke out about 1/4 of the way and hung her handbag on it.

Problem solved!
