SOURCE: Running rough and stalls during wet weather otherwise runs fine.

Your ignition coil is cracked. Replace it with a new OEM unit.

SOURCE: 2001 Nissan Maxima- runs rough, stalls when idle

Timing belt could have skipped a tooth.

Horrible vacuum leak could have started. Listen for suction noises when you raise the hood.

Someone could have poured sugar in your tank.

You could have put diesel in your tank instead of gas.

Could be a bad MAP sensor, TPS sensor, etc.

Need more details to be precise.

SOURCE: car runs rough and stalls. 03 ford focus code

You have a cooling problem with this vehicle, what happens is that as soon as the engine is running too hot the PCM starts by switching some of the cylinders off to try and control the temperature but if you ignore this the PCM will start cutting out two cylinders at a time and restricting the RPM to 3000rpm only, called limp mode. This trouble code will be registered in the PCM under the code P2199
If you still ignore this the PCM will switch the engine off completely to avoid serious damage to the engine
Have a look at the coolant level, Radiator leaks, Water pump, thermostat, blocked radiator
Hope this will help you

My car was running just fine nd one day just died. Thought i ran outta gas put gas in wouldn't stat started. When running I tried putting in gear keeps stalling out but while in park runs rough.


I just did a BWM, The MAF sensor plug was sloppy. I fixed that. The problem wasn't as bad, but was still there. I tapped on the sensor and it was considerably worse. MAF sensor fixed it. There are many other things that could cause this also. Year make and model helps.

Car stalled out and now won't start


Sounds like the same thing I ran into (again mine is a Mits Mir 2001). I guess I'm late in replying though. Never knew about this site. Anyway, its probably the timing belt. My car died too just like it ran outta fuel. However I made the mistake of cranking the engine. That's a bad idea, you may end up damaging the engine.
