SOURCE: why does the engine stall when accelerating?

1. Remove the airfilter box and try to rev. it up but dont yank it up rev it up in a 3sec time interval from 0-9000rpm. If it revs up replace your airfilter it might look ok but the material it is made of ages and with damp in the air closes up the micro holes in it and chokes the engine as soon as you rev it up. If you have an airbox don't fit those smaller individiual airfilters you would have to get it jet dynoed, what I am saying is fit the same type air filter back on or you will have fuel air problems.
2. Remove the exhaust manifold from the head, start it up and rev it up in a time interval of 3sec from 0-9000rpm. If it revs up your exhaust is blocked and you either have a wasp stuck in your exhaust outlet or it is aged and blocked. Try closing your mouth and nose with your hands and breath in or out, this is the same with your engine.

3. If this does not rectify your problem you will have to look at your carburator float levels or your coil packs. Let me know if it work or don't so that we could fault find your problem this is the easiest and the firts steps to follow.

Stalling while at full stop then hitting the gas I foolishly forgot to put the oil cap back on my engine when I got home the engine was a mess, I waited over two weeks for the weather to warm up before...

I would check for water in the spark plug tubes and for water under the distributor cap. It will only take a couple of minutes to dry either one out.

Engine stalling after starting and stopping

Does that mean it does not stall or **** in 3rd gear?
The difference between low RPM and high RPM is primarily a greater fuel requirement. So a fuel related problem like clogged filter or bad fuel pump or return pressure regulator comes to mind.
Spark is also slightly RPM related, so you could have the ignition control module checked at Autozone or a place like that.
Other RPM related items, such as EGR, PVC, and tank purge valve are not likely to be so dramatic alone.

hi if its just second to thrid then the clutch is slipping on thrid gear look at the boxes oil level is important but look at the colour is it red and tranperant as this is ok if its brown its a sign of the clutches slipping i would try a stall test on thrid gear first and if its ok second gear [manually] see is the engine stalls at the correct rpm if you thinkabout it imagine you are in thrid gear in a manuual box and suddenly drop into second it would be hard shifting it could also be a faulty thrid gear solenoid yates210456
