    Sometimes the engine cranks and doen't start. Other times it will start and run rough. Yet other times it will run smooth. When it started running smooth I took it out for a test drive and it stalled out a few times and didn't start back up right away a couple of times, it would just crank. We had a new fuel pump and filter put in it and still does the same thing. I also replaced the spark plugs, IAC and the TPS both on the trottle body. I want to believe it is bad gas, not sure what to do? Perhaps there is a secondary fuel filter that I am not aware of? What do you think?

    Have a similar problem. Stalls out while driving. Works fine while steady driving, but sometimes when I come to a stop, it starts getting rough and stalls out. It will start in park and nuetral, but when I put it in drive or reverse it stall right out. Have replaced, fuel pump, fule filter, neutral saftey switch, all vacuum lines that had any sign of wear, fule lines, all filters, spark plug, plug wires, alternator, starter, you name it it's more than likely been replaced. Still having the problem.



    It's never consistant, very spuratic. Can go months with no problems and then it starts and can have it going on every time I come to a stop and then next day no problems. Anyone have any ideas?? I've been to every garage to have it check - found nothing, I've asked every parts place for ideas - nothing. getting ready to just have car towed and be done with it.

    Once the blazer is up to tempiture I take my foot off the gas and it will start to run rough and stalls. As long as I'm on the gas it is fine.

I have a F250 lariat with a 460 - truck stalls when I put it in gear - even after it runs for 20 min. Sometimes it will stall while I'm driving. I had carborator replaced last year. Hope you can help.


Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.
