Hello, There is plastic baffle in the gas tank that keeps a supply of gas for the fuel pump. The baffle breaks and when fuel supply is low there will not be sufficient gas and the engine will stall. To repair will need a new tank.

Rough idle after engine is warm


Dirty air filter, dirty throttle body...try 2 bottles of gas line fuel injector cleaner...has your car been parked for awhile? Heet gas additive will work on any low gas tank sludge that you may have. Hope this helps.

Stalling at low idle


I don't know this specific car. But, if it has one, check your Idle Air Valve. This can cause the engine to stall. If you can hold the gas pedal and the engine will continue to run until you let off the gas, it is likely the IAV. It will not necessarily cause the engine to run rough. That could be a number of things like spark plugs, wires or dirty injectors. It could also be a compression problem. Is the check engine light on?

Stalls when low on fuel and you hit the brakes.also when give to much gas but its fine at 1/2 tank


You probably let the gas get too low and the sediment of the tank is being picked up and passed through the fuel line, hence the stalling of the car. Dirty injectors.

Car idles low, stalls after start


Common issue at the shop (i'm a ford technician), here is what I do to correct it.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Car stalled twice today - once when low on fuel and at a stop sign - took foot off break and engaged but stalled- and then filled up and was going around corner and then stalled- what could it be


If the car actually ran out of gas, it could be air trapped in the fuel lines. it may take a few minutes for all the air to purge from the gas lines. The car may run rough during the process. The car should be fine after running a few minutes.
