Common faults for stalling on 1.6 zetec engine are the idle speed valve/ or the throttle position sensor. The engine could also be sucking in air from a split hose or failed inlet manifold gasket.

Turn up your idle a bit, check for vaccum leaks.

the question is-- was you foot on the brake at home or was just the hand brake applied
when driving , slowing , stopping standing , all have the foot on the brake which is activating a brake booster and if that is faulty , the vacuum leak causes the problem

From red light truck started sputtering and and stalled out


Hello. The GMC Sierra has an electric fuel pump so you should ensure that its fuses and relays are working before checking it. You may need to clean your fuel pump or replace it if your gas tank is not empty, but your vehicle has difficulty getting fuel. The GMC Sierra comes in a variety of styles and trim levels that can affect the replacement fuel pump you choose.
