Could be a shorted out starter, or starter solenoid. If you dont know how to check or repair, maybe have ot towed to a repair shop. It may seem expensive, but its cheaper than guessing.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

I had a similar problem, when i would press the gas pedal down X%, the car would shake, and kinda do a "Pop pop pop pop pop" noise.. (NOT a backfire, like a light popping noise), ended up being a tiny air leak in a hose.. Fixed that.. 6 mo. later, a gasket in the throttle body had sprung a leak (Leak of air pressure), and the car is doing this again.. feels like its gonna stall, and does it when i accelerate fast, or go over 60.. This is all because jaguar uses digital gas pedals (VS "Drive by wire"). if this is it, its a easy, cheap fix.
Just start the car, and put your ear towards the engine (With the hood up.. watching out for moving parts), listen for a hissing noise.. Your car should not hiss at all.

If it sounds like backfiring you may have some spark plug wires mixed up.Also you may want to check the compression in the engine cylinders.

Vehicle Shakeing vigerousely and wont acceleate normally


check the plug hole in the top of the engine, if they are full of water they are shorting the plugs before it reaches the cylinder.
may also have a couple of bad coils because of it.
accel coils are a good and a little cheaper and better than the factory coils.

Engine shakes when idling, not when driving; brake problem as well


Check your vacuum hoses and see if one has come off. You might hear a hissing under the hood when running also if it is vacuum leak. this will cause both problems
