if it keeps stalling it could be an obstructed fuel filter, a weak fuel pump, or your tps(throttle position sensor) is faulty.

We had a 1997 Ford Explorer that did something very similar. We thought the transmission was going out, but it was the exhaust manifold gasket. Cost us a couple of hundred at the dealer to get it fixed, but that was a few years ago.

When accelerate my 2001 aurora it starts... like putt putting like its about to run out of gas and turn off but it doesnt .. it will drive fine for a while and when I go to jump on the highway it starts...

My aurora did the same thing, and I did replace the secondary air injection unit, mine has the 4.0 v-8 and the location of the one I changed is near firewall in the middle above the valve cover/coil over unit. see if the vacuum line popped off or melted that's what mine did, and exhaust was escaping did cause veh to perform poorly, and couldn't get but about 65 mph tops on the interstate. changed the rear one and problem solved. however it could be caused by a plugged catalytic converter which could cause the air injection to go bad. I took my catalytic converter off and cleaned/knocked it out. but depending on your local codes if your county requires the emission testing you would need to replace the catalytic converter. Luckily my county does not.

02 malibu no acceleration engine sounds fine

would be worth having the cat converter check for blocking the exhaust system

The check engine light came on and instantly no acceleration just a major putt, putt, putt! What caused this?

First guess, catalitic converter. But you need to have the codes read first. This will point you in the right direction.

SUV Engine won't start

Have a 1999 Ford Expedition that did something similar. I just waited it out after taking it to the Dealer where they made sure the keys were programmed for the vehicle (of which I have 3 keys that work).

It is possible that something isn't right, but I just used the vehicle until the problem went away.

If they checked the fuel, electrical, etc. and didn't find anything, I think that I can't do any better than the dealership.

My Expediton seems to work ok now. I don't know what was wrong when it didn't start correctly. lol.
