First impression is a MAP sensor. If you take the car to a service station or an auto parts store that features free diagnostic tests, I'm sure the MAP sensor fault will appear. Other cause could be the TPS which controls the idle at cold,warm, and AC operation settings. It's possible that you're stalling due to insufficient idle speed setting on the TPS.

    I've seen this one before on my sister's Pontiac Grand Prix. She kept taking it to Goodyear who tuned it up, changing this and that until she had spent $900 but still it would often stall while coming to a stop. The problem turned out to be a solenoid inside the transmission pan that controls torque converter lock-up. It was sticking in the lock position and lugging the engine down when RPM's were low. Replacing the solenoid solved the problem. The torque converter is supposed to be unlocked at low speeds. She never has her transmission fluid changed regularly like I do, I bet you've never had your's changed out either. I use synthetic because it's cleaner and doesn't break down, and ditto for the oil. Transmission get very hot and this over time deteriorates "organic" fluid.

My check engine light is on and when driving wont pick up speed like it suppose to and when stop at light cuts off


Take you car to the local Auto Parts Store, most of them will connect a handset to your car for free, once they have the codes you will have a better idea what is wrong with your machine and what parts may be required to repair the issue. Places like Auto Zone and I beleive PEP Boys will help you out.

Problems accelerating


the engine tickover is too slow when the engine is cold its running on cold start, ie:choke,, after it warms up the engine slows down this is what is causing it to stall in gear,, get some one to hold the brakes hard on and with the engine running in gear ajust the tick over till its reving at 750 - 850 rpm the revs will go up a bit when its out of gear,, before you pick a gear to go into push the foot brake down to stop the car lurching,,,

Stalling after about 15 - 20 minutes


Change your fuel filter first.
If the problem is still there your fuel pump is going bad.

94 Lincoln TC engine stalls when slowing/stopping


Most common cause of stalling for Lincolns in that era is the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). It regulates fuel mixture, idle speed etc. A bad TPS will usually act up in one of two ways:
  1. When cold, car continually stalls
  2. When warm, car stalls when slowing down (especially if AC is on)
As far as valve cover oil leak, it's a problem that should be addressed to keep oil from fouling your spark plugs but highly unlikely to be the cause of your stalling problem. Hope this answers your question. All the best.

1996 Camry 100 km stalling


You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
