Try a new fuel filter. If that don't help best to do a fuel pressure test, pump might be getting weak.

Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again


Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio


It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

1991 chevy c1500 stalling


Usually a problem with a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve. The computer controls idle speed by regulating how much air enters the intake thru the valve.

97 lumina, 3.1. Starts runs smooth, drive for 30


I just recently have been fighting the same problem with the same make/model/year vehicle. For myself, I would drive off and on through the day and it would run fine. Then suddenly after a start it would run rough and die. I would have to wait 20 to 60 mins before it would start again. I had it checked and fuel pump was only putting out around 19 psi. It should be around 41 psi. Had fuel pump replaced and no more problems. Furthermore, now it runs so much better. It's funny how over time I didn't notice how the performance was slowly degrading. Unfortunaley fuel pumps for this car run around $300.

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.


mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.
