My car won't start.
I assume that the battery is dead, although I can't think of a reason why. I didn't leave the lights on, or a door open or anything.
But it won't start.
Kind of threw a wrench in my plans for the day, but that's the way it goes.
Time for a late lunch, and the a lot of boring admin work.
@bobjonkman So for the engine cutting out, I'd start with a scan for fault codes (in a pinch, most auto parts stores will scan it for free). 2300 RPM consistently makes me wonder if it's a problem with a crankshaft or camshaft position sensor, or something along those lines.
For the rubbing noise... constant or pulsing? (That said, I'm inclined to say front wheel bearing.)
