Really a redneck way of temporarily dealing with it, but you use your left foot on the brake while applying light pressure to the gas pedal to keep your car from stalling.
Without knowing the make, model, and engine your car has, it is impossible to answer this question. The more details you can give about your car and what it was doing when it stalled, the better the answer you can get. Before posting a question I would advise you to have a the codes read on your vehicle so that you may post those as well.
no, stalling only makes your car stop for a brief moment when shifting geers to fast or not using the clutch correctly
stalling, but not often?
I do not do anything. You need to have a tune up done on your car.
Well I am assuming that you car has a manual transmission, and it is stalling because you are not pushing in the clutch when you come to a stop. The more likely reason is because your idle is set to low on your car. Your most likely culprit is the carburetor. However if you car is fuel injection I would take it into a mechanic and get their opinion.
It's probably stalling, get your car looked at by a professional.
I just put a new battery and alternator in my car, but when i put it in gear or start slowing down to stop..the car die out. Also the brake light is continely on.
Please describe the "stalling" in full detail. Example: "It dies when I come to a stop after a long drive". etc. my car lights get very damm,and it wont start ather i have stop.
Could be the Idle, or some kind of adjustment with the air and fuel mixture.
to stall your car
Use the clutch.
i have a dodge magnum o5 and when i put fuel in the car and take off from the gas station and stop at a light the engine shut off what is causing this problem
Shift into park or stop at lights and stalls etc could be a bad fuel filter.
Generally speaking, a stoppage of gasoline to one of its engine cylinders will cause a car to seem like it's stalling.
so that the driver of a manual car can change gear without stalling
check your fuel pump, alot of magnas had faulty fuel pumps and due to your car stalling and splattering would be due to the fuel pump.
This is called stalling. It occurs when the gear-shift doesn't change gears correctly because of changing on a bump (train-tracks).
To prevent the car from stalling
Could be the Fuel Pressure Regulator
It my be your Mass Air Flow Sincere.
As you look in the engine compartment, it is near the top of the tranny just to the right of the motor. I assume your car is stalling when coming to a stop. Disconnect the plug and your problem will be solved.
if you do have gas in the car then it could be the idle control valve. it stops the engine from stalling when the car is stationary
I think I understand what you are saying. If your car is stalling and you want to figure out how to get that to quit, have the idle and throttle checked out. Idle might be set to high. Also, the throttle body might need to be cleaned. A great website to figure out how to do this is at www.trustmymechanic.com
Do you have a "service engine" light? Stalling could be caused by a wide variety of problems, such as a faulty sensor, ECM, or even the need for a tune up. Reading fault codes can narrow down the problem, if you take it to a local autozone, they will read the codes for free.
Check your idle, your idle might be too low so it is stalling your car.
