I had my "distributor pick-up" replaced. car would just die out, while i was driving.

An engine usually has a higher idle speed when the ac is running. If the high speed idle does not operate then the ac will cause the engine to stall.

A problem in the fuel line could cause it to stall. On a stick shift, letting off the clutch too soon would cause the vehicle to stall.

Could be a fuel pump going bad or a clogged fuel filter,

Numerous things could cause the Nissan Altima to stall. One such thing is the idle control valve, also the exhaust system could cause the engine to stall.

yes..a bad oxygen sensor can/will make your car stall at idle speed

The stall speed of an aircraft depends on its altitude, weight, configuration, and lateral and vertical acceleration. The stall speed for a 777 is dependent on these real-time factors.

The stall speed is nowhere near as high as that. The poster has zero idea of what they're talking about. If the stall speed were that high it would be faster than the F-15's takeoff speed, which is absurd.

The stall speed is around 130knots for an F-15 C Eagle

This sounds like an idle problem. Does the service engine light come on before the engine stalls? If it does it should post a code. Knowing what that code is could lead to a more accurate assessment of the problem. Does the engine idle ok before you put the car in gear? Does the engine restart and idle ok after the stall? There are multiple possible causes for the stall. The IAC, idle air controller, could simply be dirty and not delivering enough air for the engine to run. If the MAF, mass air flow sensor, if faulty or dirty that might cause the engine to stall. If the Oxygen sensor is faulty that could cause a stall and generally poor running as well. It may be possible that if the TPS, throttle position sensor, is faulty that could cause the engine to stall at idle speed. If you have found out what the problem is I would be interested to know for future reference.

overheating it would. Or if it was stick not being in the right gear trying to find the system causing it would help, if the air intake or filter was so clogged it couldn't suck air it could stall, and low fuel pressure could also make it stall rather slowly. Bad electrical connections could cause a quicker stall.

Could use more info but, a plugged fuel filter could do that.

There are many things that would cause a 1999 Chevy Lumina to stall. The car could be too low on fuel, have a leak in the fuel line, or an old fuel pump or filter.

The minimum speed of a Boeing 767 to remain in flight is about 160 miles per hour. Anything below that will cause the aircraft to begin to stall.

Try cleaning throttle bore and plates

This is possible, yes.You could also check the ignition coil, this will cause the same symptons.

AnswerIt probably needs a tuneup.check your mass air flow meter

"no gas" is a simpleton, borderline criminal answer to a question like this. There are many things that can cause an engine to stall with gas being just one of them. I'll start the round table.... Ignition Coil.

The stall speed is classified so it's not publicly available. But it is incredibly low - less than 100 mph.

In landing configuration (full flaps), the stall speed is 40 knots (indicated airspeed). With flaps up it is 48 knots.

There could be a few reasons why a 2000 Jeep Cherokee would stall in stopped traffic. There could be a fuel line clogged or there could be a bad spark plug.
