All cars can stall, even can be normal, (extreme cold climates)
there are simple tests to find the path..
check for loose or bad fuses.

1: lost 12vdc power to the EFI system (fuel and spark)
2: engine warms up and loses compression.
3: dead (dies on fly) or weak, spark or never ever tuned up.
4: bad fueling.
5: EGR sticks open (hard to save with fast right foot but can)
6: ISC stuck close, staving engine of air. (fast right foot saves easy)

those are macro reasons, we can break them all down to tests.
and when it stalls, attach a scan tool see if there are stored DTC error codes in memory.

if in extreme climates (N.Canada? say?) us the WOT trick in the operator guide. wot wide open throttle cranking clears flooding.
there are about 3 to 5 tests. with tools (cheap ) to find the cause.
some are free. (looking at spark plug tips is free)
a DIY man has hand tools and so they are free.

1990 Acura starts & runs fine but has been stalling out when accelerating after stopping at an intersection.

1) Turn on all electric systems- AC/wipers/radio/lights etc

2) if car stalls randomly at low RPM - Replace the Alternator
These cars are very sensitive to fluctuations in voltage and it will stall.

While I am driving, the car just stalls. It

If its an ignition switch problem the car will stall if you wiggle the key back slightly and if you quickly switch it back will it continue running. Otherwise i would replace the main fuel relay which sometimes fail when hot, then start working again when they cool down.

My 1998 acura CL stops while I am driving. It would start immediately but today i had to be towed to a repair place. What would it be?

have the ignition switch checked. When this happens does the speedometer drop to zero?? Is there some warning lights "not lit" when the vehicle stalls?? If yes to either of this, its a ignition switch failure. You may also try starting the vehicle(if possible) in the park position, and shake the key while engine is running, it should die(sometimes it may not even if the switch is worn). Hondas/Acura models years 97-02 were recalled in 2002 for this issue. The internal contacts in the switch encounter excessive arch/shorts due to poor design and too much power running through it. This causes intermitted power failure to vital engine/vehicle electrical components, causing the engine to shut down/stall. This progresses in hotter weather!! If this is the case, contact your local honda/acura dealer with your VIN# at hand for recall info and possible free repair. Otherwise the switches range from $45-$95 at advance or autozone. Hopefully this helps...please rate....thanks
