My Ford F150 engine stopped running at low RPM.. I wonder if it's bad gas? Clogged Fuel filter?


The first thing to check is the Fuel pressure at the Fuel Injector Rail schrader valve. You can get an inexpensive test kit at Harbor Freight. The pressure should be between 28 and 45 psi with the engine running. If it is lower than that you can replace the filter. If that doesn't cure the pressure problem then the pump is next.

Engine stall when put into gear.


There are a few possibility on this one. If you run it out of gas or really low on gas you could of sucked junk up from the bottom of the tank and you will need to replace your fuel filter. Another is that your fuel pump us going bad and you would need to check the pressure. Your throttle position sensor may have gone bad. Your idle control valve is another. Your map sensor or mas sensor could be bad

thats what it sounds like, a bad or clogged up fuel filter. if it bogs down when giving it gas, or going up a hill. its probably the fuel filter not letting enough fuel to engine. that is why it stalls at a stop. if this helps but not fully. check or clean idle air control motor. this is what maintains proper idle of vehicle. have a good day !!

Sounds like a plugged fuel filter. You might have dislogged some "crud" when removing the lines, etc... Can't be 100% sure without doing a test on the fuel system.
Good Luck.

When you slow down to stop .the car will idle to low or die.


First replace fuel filter and check the air filter. next if it still does it you need to clean the throttle plate using a tooth brush and top engine cleaner, you also need to teat fuel rail pressuer, if this does not fix the problem then the idle set screw needs to be adjusted. Also if you own a timing light check to see if the timing mark is jumping around, these cars tend to lose the distributor drive pin, it's a easy fix but wanted to make you aware of it. Do not adjust the idle valve till you know that that catalytic converter is ok.
