It's possible that the fuel pump is failing and begins to have problems once it gets hot. i would have someone check fuel pressure once it is warmed up and having the stalling issue.

2000 Grand Vitara breaksdown, backfires and dies while driving after about 30 minutes. Starts again in about an hour. Changed fuel pressure regulator. Made no difference.


The check engine will be on if the key is on but engine not running . This is normal. If the check engine goes out when the engine starts there are no codes present . Did you check the fuel filter . Sometimes when a filter is dirty there is sedement laying in the filter canister . When the pump starts working the flow picks up the sedement and plugs any remaining open screen and stops the fuel completely . The engine stops . When the flow stops the sedement falls back allowing flow again. and the engine will run for another while . If the filter is old it should be changed anyway . Also when the engine stops check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs while cranking the engine .

Stalls accelerating on turns


Disengage the traction control if possible see if that helps. the oil light will come on after stalling, because the key is on.. just like when you start the car. it may be dirty fuel system... filter and or injectors...

Check the oil. Quite a few cars do that when they are low.

CHECK OIL LEVEL FIRST.IF LOOKS OKAY HAVE OIL PRESSURE CHECKED IF OIL PRESSURE GOOD.YOUR OIL FILTER AND OIL HAS BEEN CHANGED AND OIL NOT TOO HEAVY OR THICK AND YOU ARE USING THE RIGHT OIL VISCOSITY.YOU COULD HAVE A FAULTY OIL PRESSURE SWITCH.IF CAR STALLING IN MOTION YOUR FUEL FILTER STOPPED UP OR FUEL PUMP GOING BAD.

Check fuel pump pressure and fuel pump regulator. It sounds like you are not getting fuel into the system and if you are you are not getting enough fuel into the system
