Question about 2001 Ford Crown Victoria

Car stalling in while in drive, also surging when brake applied in drive

This problem began Monday of this past week (9/22). Engine began to misfire while driving in town. Also experienced engine almost stalling out, then as if recovering itself, would act as if accelerator pressed down (it was not.) Then, Thurs. afternoon, car stalled out while at stop light. Was able to start it back up in normally in about ten minutes. Immediately after stallout, engine was trying to turn over, but would not; acted like older cars used to when "flooded." New fuel filter was installed, did not correct problem. Friday, mechanic replaced crankshaft sensor, did not correct problem. Today, car's computer was changed, and that did not fix it,either. So far, I have stumped the local mechanic, and I have been carless for two days. HELP!!! Sue

You need a new mechanic. your mechanic should be able to troubleshoot your vehicle and not just replace parts. did he give you a redit for not fixing the problem

Recently my accelerator cable broke on my 1989 honda accord lx automatic carbed 4 door and i replaced it. it progressivly began to stall during braking in gear .but as soon as i took my foot off the brake...


Best check under the hood for a loose or broken vacuum line. The fact that the stalling started occurring right after the cable was repaired, would lead me to believe somebody may have disconnected a vacuum hose while installing the cable, or knocked one off, or broken one. If you can't see one that is broken, or loose, start the engine, and wiggle the hoses around while listening for a "hissing" sound. Let me know how you make out.

It appears that your brake booster system has a major vacuum leak which is causing the engine to go lean and stall. Check the hose between the intake manifold and the brake booster. It may be cracked or loose causing outside air to enter the hose when the brake is applied.

Stalls or wants to turn off when pushing brakes


Check for vacuum leak within power brake servo unit.
Remove vacuum hose from brake servo and block off the open vacuum line from the engine. Check that engine then runs normally when brakes applied.
Do not drive the vehicle with the vacuum servo disconnected, as the brakes may not be effective. - The pedal pressure required to apply the brakes effectively may exceed your capabilities.

If the brake booster servo diaphragm is leaking it will need to be replaced/repaired.
