2009 f150 fx4 engine starts, idles good then stalls after a few minutes


Any DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? I would have the vehicle checked , could point you in the right direction an shorten your diagnostics . Your vehicle has a number of control modules , PCM , SJB , air bag , antilock brakes , instrument cluster , They all share information on a serial data communication bus . You could have one of any number of problems that could cause a stall condition . A shorted transmission range sensor , crankshaft position sensor . You could have a bad ground somewhere . Unless your an automotive electrical an electronics wizzard , I suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop .

Have a 2001 cavalier.... Starts fine now idles but when put into gear it stalls?


Possible torque converter clutch issue. Is the check engine light on? If so, have it scanned for transmission codes. If the torque converter clutch is locked up when it isn't supposed to be, the vehicle will stall. Another thing to check is for coking on the throttle plate. Remove the hose that goes from the air filter box to the throttle assembly and look inside the throttle bore to see if it is dirty/black. If so, use carb cleaner and a toothbrush to clean while holding throttle plate open and remove as much carbon deposits as possible. This can affect minimum idle airflow and also cause a stall

I have a F250 lariat with a 460 - truck stalls when I put it in gear - even after it runs for 20 min. Sometimes it will stall while I'm driving. I had carborator replaced last year. Hope you can help.


Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse
