How do you stop a vehicle with stalled engine?
Press the brake ?!?
Stop safely now ( diesel engine only ) ( STOP THE VEHICLE AS SOON AS SAFELY POSSIBLE ) The vehicle exhaust system temperature exceeds the intended operating range If this warning occurs , the engine power is reduced and the engine will shut down when the vehicle speed is below 3 MPH ( CONTACT AUTHORIZED DEALER )
Put the transmission in neutral, pull over and stop immediately (safely), turn off the engine. Do not drive the vehicle again until the problem has been rectified. Don't turn off the engine first, you will make the vehicle very hard to steer and stop. The power brakes and power steering only work with the engine running.
You can drive the car but should have the vehicle checked soon as possible. BUT if the service engine soon light is flashing, stop the vehicle when it is safe to do so then shut off the engine immediately. If you continue to drive the vehicle with the service engine soon light flashing you will do catastrophic damage to the catalytic converter(s).
It is quite simple. The wheel probably had little to do with the engine stopping. The cause was probably the changing of gears, ex: drive to reverse, which stalled the engine. This rarely occurs, 1: 100,000, but does happen sometimes. It is not something to usually worry about. This stall was most probably conincidental, caused by the shift.
is it throwing oil in the engine? I bought a 94 from a dealership - they said it was in perfect condition but it was throwing oil really badly. It stalled out on me 3 times in two days.. If you can get it to start, I'd suggest putting a stop-leak oil in it, I forget the exact names of the parts but some little disk things in the engine had gotten old and the…
Why is it more difficult to push a stalled car from rest that to keep it in motion once it has started to run?
It's based on Newton's first law of Motion: a body at rest will stay at rest, until acted upon by an outside force. A vehicle that is stopped is harder to move, because you have to overcome its inclination to remain stationary. Once the vehicle has begun to move, you add your influence to the vehicle's forward momentum, thus making your effort less. But if you mean "why is it harder to push a stalled…
Engine oil does not cause a engine knock. It is caused by pre-ignition, which can have many causes, including the wrong grade of fuel octane. Make sure that you are choosing the correct fuel for your vehicle. You may want to take the vehicle to a mechanic, as engine knocking can seriously damage your engine.
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…
if you mean why does the engine stop on its own, you probably need to replace the cam positioning sensor on the engine this is an easy job and the sensor is located above the harmonic balance pulley wheel on the front of the engine block this is easiest reached from underneath the vehicle and will take all of 5 minutes to change out
You may very well have a blown head gasket. This is a very serious problem and if you continue to drive the vehicle you will destroy the engine. Get it repaired ASAP, and stop driving it until you do. You may very well have a blown head gasket.

Why does your Oil light come on and you can't accelerate well after you stop at a stop sign or red light?
The oil light is a red warning light that is telling you that the engine oil pressure is low or non-existent and to stop. Severe engine damage will occur if you continue to drive the vehicle. I would suspect you have already done serious damage to this engine. It is not accelerating very well because it is dying from a lack of lubrication. Remember RED means STOP.
because your car is experiencing a serious problem and you need to stop and park it right away when the check engine light is just on there is a problem but the vehicle can still operate but needs to checked out when it's flashing that means something very serious has occured and you need to stop right away or you are going to kill your engine that's why it flash's to get the drivers attention…
If a vehicle has stalled while driving through 1ft of water is it okay to try to start the vehicle while still in the water?
It's not likely you'll hurt any thing by trying, usually what's stalled the vehicle is that its motion through the water caused water to spray up on top of the motor and disrupted the ignition system. If it won't start, try removing the distributor cap and spray the inside of it and the parts it's covering with silicone spray or WD40. Reinstall the cap and it should run.
