There can be many issues of a car stalling intermittendly as it can be due to faulty firing, faulty impulse to coils, faulty fuel , faulty fuel pressure, faulty filters.
So if the scheduled service was not done recently-- a 40 point check up covering all areas- it is time to check it out than to have no confidence with a stallingg car and trying to fix just one error while the other possibilities still wait by..

Your fuel filter could be clogged. If you run your truck on empty this will cause the fuel pump to go out, and also the fuel filter to become clogged. Try replacing the fuel filter they're not very exsensive. Truthfuly it sounds like the fuel filter is clogged or you have dirt in you your fuel tank that is getting into your fuel pump. try to fill the truck atleast half full with fuel see if that helps. if so then you need to replace the fuel filter.

    Thank you but I have been reading on my car on the internet and it does not have a fuel filter. I suspected that right away. It said I should try the replacing the fuel pump, but that is expensive and I have nobody to do it. Any other suggestions?

    Is there an access hole in the back of the trunk so I don't have to drop the tank. I read that somewhere. I guess I need to change the fuel pump. WOW - that's alot on money.

Why does 2005 Kia Sorento die while driving


You need to run an engine control module scan for fault codes Known as an OBD2 fault code test.. Autozone and others do this for free. If no fault show then hook up a test fuel gage the next time it stalls and see if maybe the fuel pump is failing.

Do you have a place where they can check the engine for contamination? Mine had a similar problem it would die after slowing down at the junction, Ask your mechanic to clean the engine and also check the throttle sensor and it will be good as new.

Good luck

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

2005 ford taurus se has the emissions light on and in nov 2008 when this light came on and my car completely died after turning the air on I had to have the a/c compressor fixed, the alternator, serpintine...


Well let me tell you this.

2 days ago my a/c didn't put out cold air. It worked the next morning & evening and this morning and almost all the way home tonight.

My 2005 Tarus just did the same thing tonight, emissions light came on while I was going about 80mph. I got over to the right lane and slowed down to 60 and made it off the highway.

As I proceeded home it was acting like it would stall at the red lights but didn't, until I pulled into the driveway (lucky day?).

Bottom line is my emissions light is on and the car won't start.

I will update you asap., on my repair when i take it in tommorrow.
