    Have you cycled key, on, off, on, off, on and leave on & count flashes of check engine light, to see if any trouble codes are present?

    Anything's possible, I guess, but I hate just replacing parts by guessing. When it stalls on you, does it start right back up & go again, or do you have to wait?

    Normally if the knock sensor goes you'll hear rattling like ("timing ping") when under load as in going up a slope or hill or acceleration. Any different noises from engine since this started to happen?

    When was last tune-up & wires checked? Has fuel filter been changed lately? Have you had fuel pressure tested? Sorry to ask so many questions when your the one looking for answers but, trying to eliminate different causes here, before we start replacing parts needlessly.

    35 is cooling fan relay circuit for cars, but says 35 also points to idle switch motor on trucks. You say when your driving it will stall, at highway speeds, or when you let off on the gas to coast? If you hold it at say 50mph, it will keep going , no problems? Only stalls when you let off the gas?

    After you cycle key & leave on as instructed above, count flashes of check engine light. It will flash so many times, then pause, then start flashing again. For example: flash,flash,flash, pause, flash flash, flash. is code 33, a pause, then it will start to flash again, for example, after that 33, it pauses again, then flashes again, flash, flash, pause flash,flash, that's code 22. Always will be 2 digit number. When it flashes 5 times, pauses, then flashes 5 times again, that's code 55 which means end of message, or end of codes. try it, see if anything comes up.

if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.

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

Transmission doesn't stay in one gear

possible faults - *check the shifting cable selector is aligned with the neutral starting switch * check engine mounts *make sure the fluid level is between the marks on the dipstick running hot * overdrive friction and drive plates have worn out * the torque converter or oil pump has a problem *do a torque converter stall test hope you used only mitsubishi automatic oil when changed *check the throttle position sensor * temp sensor for the auto the TCU has faults or needs to be replaced
