This could be a fuel system or ignition system problem. Listen to fuel tank at the filler door with cap off and have someone turn the key on. You should hear the electric whine noise of the fuel pump for 2 seconds. Turn the ignition key back off and wait 10 seconds to be able to repeat the 2 second prime. If you didn't hear it run then it most likely has a faulty fuel pump relay or fuel pump. If you did hear it running then add a couple of gallons of gas to see if maybe the fuel tank sending unit is giving a false reading to the fuel gauge. If this checks out ok then check for spark at a plugwire on the engine. If it has good spark and fuel then you may have computer issues or engine mechanical problems in which case you should take the vehicle in to a repair facility. Oh, always start with checking all fuses on the vehicle. This is free and easy to do and could save alot of wasted time. Hope some of this helps with your problem.

Dodge charger stalling 2007?

Does it stall at idle, just after you start up? Does it stall when you give it gas - or take your foot off of the gas? Does it stall at stoplights, stopsigns, etc? Does it stall when the engine is hot or cold or warm? I would love to try and help, but you've gotta give me something to work off of!

Whenever i make my car stall it wont start again for another 5 or 10 mins Im new at driving a stick shift so i stall quite often and was wondering why it takes so long before the car can start again?

I'm hoping that you are not in traffic when you stall the car !! Some ignition switches for instance on VW's, the key has to be turned to the full off position and then on again in order to start. I would find a large parking lot to practice in - get to the point of never stalling before venturing out into the traffic flow.
