    dsham, try and stick to a single post instead of making a new one each time. It is hard to keep track of this way. I know I asked a question, but I don't remember the codes you got or the original symptoms. I tried finding your original post but couldn't. I'm lucky I even saw this one because I happened to be online and it popped up. Could you tell me what the original symptom was again?

Check the exhaust compression. Remove the O2 sensors before the cataylic converts and see if it improves. If it does that means your cats are cloged and need to be replaced.

Check the fuel pressure, make sure it doesn't bleed down after the car sits, that causing long crank times/hard starting.

Brenda, this could be a lot of different things to cause hard start and stalling. Faulty crank sensor, idle air control valve, EGR, vacuum leak, injectors, fuel pump, ignition circuit, distributor faulty,plugs,wires,plugged exhaust, etc. Find a good technician check the codes and have them diagnose and give an estimate on repair.

I have a 1996 dodge caravan that starts hard in cold weather!

Cold weather has an adverse affect on batteries. The clicking sound could be from the starter solenoid not receiving enough voltage to energize the starter motor. The engine being hesitant to start and run could indicate the need of new spark plugs, wires, etc.

1996 Ford F-350 460 gas engine. Stalls while going on road,either tank. I've replaced fuel filter, and fuel pressure regulator. It will start right away, usually.

I'd check the manual transfer valve on the dash. They have a tendency to go bad after awhile. Cause 1000 different symptoms, and be the last thing checked/replaced. It's probably the cheapest place to start. The pump under the driver's feet is usually the last one to go in my experience, but the secondary culprit is normally the main pump in the rear tank.

Next time it tries to stall, toggle the fuel switch and see what happens. Same with a hard start. Back and forth a few times quickly.

Hope this helps.

Engine stalls

Its not the thermostat. If it has a carburator Go to the fuel line and put 3 clothes pins on the fuel line. It will get rid of heat. I would love to know if it works out for you. Good luck!

Car will not start at times, will stall out while running, and has choppy acceleration

There is one thing you can do yourself and that is to drain the fuel tank (save the fuel for later!) and put some 93 octane in, to see if that cures the problem.
The other suggestion is to get that list of fault codes from your mechanic and post them here. Make sure it's a current list - read the codes, print out the list, clear the codes and then run the car for a while before getting the fault codes read again. Then send us that new list.

I haven't looked up the spec on your engine because I don't know what engine type it is, but if it has anti-knock sensors they could be trying to ****** the electronic timing so much that the car stalls, maybe combined with some other problem.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills.
If they do not, please hold off on the rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D
