Question about 1996 Geo Metro
3 cylinder, fuel injected engine, after it has been driven for a while and engine is hot and then you park the car for a while, then restart and drive, the engine stalls but, starts again in a couple of minutes, then its fine for the duration with no more incidents. This happens like clockwork, the only variation is sometimes you can only drive 20 feet and then stalls or sometimes up to a a mile before stalling. Seems to be fuel starvation but, why stall only once? Thanks in advance for your input.
After driving for a while and the engine becomes hot, when you park the car for a while, does this "for a while" mean enough time for the engine to cool down or not?
The reason why this is important is because an engine can stall for a number of reasons, and finding out the conditions of its stalling obviously helps narrow down the cause of the stall.
If it stalls, you say, when the engine cools down after being parked for a while, this handy diagnostic article will help assess the cause of your problem:
If it stalls again, like you said, after warming up and driving for a bit, the ambient temperature may be too as well as the engine itself, which then you should be inclinde to read this diagnostic article:
You may very well be right its due to fuel starvation, particularly as to the malfunctioning of the EGR, as noted in the article.
I'm sure these articles will provide you with great insight.
