The 1st thing u must do here is run a full electronic engine control fault code test on the OBD1 electronic fuel injection system, this includes the key on engine off test and the key on engine running test, without this test you are just guessing and there are many components that can cause this stall, have a qualified Ford tech run a KOEO test and a KOER test.

Check your MAP sensor, throttle position sensor (TPS), and oxygen sensor. One of these sensors has failed. Hook up an OBD II scan tool (the port is underneath the drivers side steering wheel) and obtain the trouble code from your trucks computer. After you get the code, look in the back of a Haynes manual and match the code to the list of codes in that repair book. This will save you time and money and pinpoint the exact component that has failed.

My car is stalling when idling and sputtering when driving like it is losing power


Try some gas line anti freeze (methle hydrate) It will dissipate water which may have been at the bottom of the tank. If he put regular gas and you put super, add octane boost. and drive for half hour and it will clear.

2012 Nissan Versa 1.6, after idling for a about 20 minutes (or while in heavy traffic) engine starts sputtering and eventually would stall. Would no start till cooled off. The following codes come up :...


P0171 and P0174 are telling you that each cylinder bank is running too lean. P0300 is telling you there is a misfire, possibly caused by the other codes. This is why the engine is running rough.

1988 Mercedes Benz 300E 3.0L Gasoline F.I. ''Sputtering at Idle


ok..you must have more than one car???? you don't drive the 300 atall im guessing. #1 start car drive up the road and \back to your house. #2 let it idle till problem starts. #3 once it does start with the problem keep it alive with the gas pedal. #4 once your have it safely from dying in higher rpms "rev it" like a kid would, you know like if you were gonna race some one lol. be careful not to over rev or damage engine. you should do this for five minutes no longer than that. #5 let it idle for another 5 minutes. #6 repeat every day until problem with idling decipates. it took mine 3 300e like 3 days of this. if your not going to drive the car once you get the problem out of the way. turn the car on everyday and let it idle for 5 minutes atleast and take it for a short drive once a week. they get lonelly you know lol. later on you can just turn the car on every 2 -3 days and let it idle but still take it on a short drive atleast once a week

dont think it is a fuel issure sounds like a MASS AIR PROBLEM if a car is stalling while driving and will not starts but cranks its one of two things a fuel prob. or an air problem i would first check your idle air valve as well *** your tps sensor if this is happening while you drive the vehicle it sounds like at some point there is either too much air or fuel in chambes causeing missfire inturn shutting down the engine reason for not starting again is simple if its too much fiel its flooded and if it's not enough air your engine cant start if it starts after 3 hours sounds like enough time for all fumes to have subsided in chamber and again allowing for a clean start up check tps and idle air valve as well as mass air flow

when was the last time the oil was changed on either one off these vechs. on the one hand the cam sensor is located in the timing cover with a spring, this will not cause a no start our dying problem but will set a cel light. if the egr passages is pluged up it will cause a egr problem hard start no start rough ilde. o2 sensor can cause a rough ilde but will also set a code . what is the mech condation off these vechs. run a commpession test and a vauccmn test. if these two items show bad readings our result. these two test should be done frist
