There are many things that can cause a car to stall while driving it.
An engine is made up of many parts, and many of those parts are either
governed by a computer or provide input to the computer to help it
determine settings for the things it governs. Every vehicle has a fuel

govern the fuel and ignition systems.
If your car stalled
while you were driving it, look for an obvious reason first. Check to
make sure you have fuel in the tank (if your gas gauge is working). Do
not sit there and crank the car over, trying to get it to start, as you

they break, the computer will go into "limp home mode," which allows
you to get the car to a service station. The car will run badly, and
may stall out on you.
Because the running of a vehicle is complicated, there are many more
things that can cause a vehicle to stall. These are the most common
things that can cause a car to stall. Other things include wiring,
fuses, relays, other sensors not working properly or at all, a bad
alternator or a bad battery, or an overheating problem, just to name a
