SOURCE: vam stalling

there are too many reasons...

it could be fuel pump,, it could be ignition coil overheating, it could be the computer itself...

you need two things for the engine to run,

1 is gas
2nd is ignition,,

with these two misfiring or your loosing one of them, it will stall...

i hope i was able to give you some thoughts....

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus will not idle down

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

Sounds like you may have a vacuum line off or ruptured going to the EGR valve. The burning smell is probably the catalytic converter. When the engine runs rich you will get a sulfur smell that smells sort of like rotten eggs.

Is there a way to start my car without the kill switch


Hi
Your alarm or engine immobiliser are usually wired into your ignition wire at the back of the dashboard you will probably need to find out where its been joined to your wiring loom a good starting point is to take your stereo headset out and have a look at the wiring behind it as usually alarm technicians go for the quickest route and you have an ignition cable that goes to your stereo
I hope this makes sense and helps you out. Nick

when you jump start it it runs then you disconnect the cable and it dies? hope this is right. the alternator could be bad and the battery isnt getting a charge so it dies from running low on battery power.hope this helps

If the battery terminals are not clean and tight it can cause this issue you are having. Corrossion can build up inside the cables and cause this issue as well.
