Stalling Sometimes when I'm driving about 35 mph or at a stop light my car stalls and it will start right up like nothing happened. Also sometimes when I'm driving about 50 or 70 mph I will get hesitation. I have had the fuel filter replaced but still stalling. Any suggetions? Thanks

We had exactly the same problem and after replacing the fuel filter, replacing the mass airflow sensor did the trick.

Lexus SC430 Stalling Problem

Check the EVAP system canister purge valve, usually located on or near the canister itself which should be near the fuel tank. If the valve is clogged or stuck, it will cause excessive backpressure in the vapor return system, which sounds like what is happening here. Good luck, hope this helps.

1997 Ford Escort stalling when going 35 mph or less.

You may need to be looking at your Torque Converter being in LOCK UP and forcing it to stall because the Transmission is not letting go of the Motor...

You may also have a Plugged CAT CONVERTER

Test the Temp BEFORE and AFTER.. There should be an INCREASE of at least 100 degrees on the BACK from the Front

How do you know that the FUEL PUMP is working? you have one of 3 issues

a. Fuel Filter is Clogged
b. Fuel Pump is not providing enough pressure (40 PSI required)
c. Ignition Module is going bad.

My guess is Fuel Filter or Fuel Pump. Put a Gauge on it and read the pressure... You may find out that you have a pump making noise and not providing enough fuel pressure

Stalling problem when coming to a stop

Do you know what your AIS motor (automatic idle speed) is on your throttle body.Usually held on with torx screws 2 or 3. Thses are pretty well known for gumming up & sticking. It adjusts your idle automatically under load etc. If your take it off, spray it with throttle body cleaner & be sure to spray some in the port (hole it came out of) before you re-assemble it. Sometimes this will cure it or at least improve it enough that you know your in the right area, if replacement part needed.
