The problem may be a dirty throttle body. Clean the throttle body with a recommended cleaner and you might want to add some injector cleaner to your gas tank. You may also want to check your vacuum hoses and make sure they are in good repair. I hope this helps. Good luck.

MAZDA 626 ENGINE RANDOM PAUSING/STALLING


The cooling system?? That would be my last guess, right after the spare tire. Sounds like an electrical issue. Quite often remote starters, especially those not installed at the factory, can cause these problems. Is there a "check engine" code?

M buick stalls when I am driving it. I have to pull over, put it in park and it starts back up again. never know when it will happen. Replaced fuel pump. Dealer cant figure out what is wrong. says it...


It doesn't really need to have the computer connected, a simple OBDII scan tool while driving will suffice.

I'm am assuming that when your Buick stalls it is when you are at a stop light or at any other time that you aren't pressing the throttle.
That problem is likely caused by a faulty or dirty IAC valve. The valve is an electronic choke that allows air to the engine when the throttle body valve is closed...hence, your foot is off the gas.

Less common problems for random in gear stalling is an engine-side/bank 1 oxygen sensor fault, a vacuum leak, TPS fault or CPS fault. But those also cause a starting problem as well which is not mentioned in your query.

While driving my saab, alot of warning lights came and stalls


alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

1995 Taurus Engine Stalls


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
