Ford excursion 2002 - starting fine but losing power and stalling after running for 10 minutes. Rest for about 5 minutes, then starts up again


Can you perform a spark test? I would like to know if it has spark when it stalls. Also, if you have a can of starter fluid, wait for it to stall and not want to restart, the quickly spray some starter fluid into the intake. If it runs on the starter fluid, you have a fuel issue. You might also want to make sure the engine coolant level is fine and you aren't overheating. If you coolant level is low you may not know it is overheating since the coolant sensor isn't in coolant. It won't read air.

You do not have a carburator

Did you not check fuel pressure with a gauge
at the motor,after all 141,000 & 13 years or so,
the fuel pump is most likely gone

When you run out of fuel, you killed it,needs fuel to
stay cool & lube it

Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, a dirty fuel filter will also cause what you have described and a ICM (ignition control module) going bad will also do the same.

You can remove your ICM and have it tested free of charge at Auto Zone or Parts Source when you go and pick up the fuel filter. A bad ICM will cause your engine to stall out and eventually fail totally and your going to have a no engine run situation.

98 Suburban: Loses electrical like a short robbing power to drive


Perhaps alternator is not charging the battery properly 
Test with a voltmeter - fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running
With engine running should read 13.8-14.2 .
---------------------
Check the sparkplug wires and make sure the sparkplus are tight 
also check the two basic and very common thinks for this problem.the fuel pump and fuel filter.
if the pump is clogged and filter is dity this can occur.as when ever the fuel gets clogged ,this would make the car stall out and lose power as soon as the engine stopped sucking the fuel due to the debris .
check out this.
thanks,please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.
