It depends on what you mean be stall. If you can hear the engine rev up like the trans isn't even in gear...it could be a few things. 1) You're low on trans fluid. And the trans is literally falling out of gear around turns or when you go up hill. 2) If you stomp the gas and it revs up then takes off...and you have an automatic trans your drive belt is going out. If you can take off fine in 1st gear (automatic only) then it is your drive belt. If it just started doing this get something called Lucas Transmission Additive. It will recondition the belt enough to make it driveable. If it's been going on a while, chances are good your trans is shot.

It would stall out at lights because when you need to shift you have to let up on the clutch easy when your changing gears; therefore you will stall out if you let the clutch go too fast.

If you're driving a manual, it's probably stalling because if you don't press the clutch right after you release the gas pedal while changing gears, and then press on the gas again, the car may stall. If you're driving an auto, the explanation is a little more difficult to describe.

IF your 94 Probe GT has a new clutch, but when you are on a hill the car will not go, it could be the fuel line. This is especially true if it does not stall and does not rev up either.

My guess would be the fuel pump. I dont know how to change it, because i havent had to replace the one on my truck yet, but i would guess the fuel pump.

There are several reasons an engine may stall while driving, here are three.The fuel tank is empty and the engine is starved of fuel.Not enough power to climb a hill causing a stall.Faulty or damp electronics on a petrol engine can also cause a stall.

Yes, providing you are not going to stall out when you release the clutch.

This can only happen to shift stick cars, and how this happens is that the gears grind together!

When driving the IAC does not do anything because the car is not at an idle

The most common cause of a automobile stalling, while driving, is and electronic fuel pump going bad. The vehicle will begin to stall more and more and eventually not run at all.

It depends on the gearing of the car. If you are in the highest gear and 40mph in that gear is under the idle rpm of that car than you will stall.

they make it so the bike doesnt jerk around and stall when shifting gears and so you can shoot out of turns

There is usually a changing stall near the public pool. You have to use that.

There are several things which could be causing the car to stall out while driving. The most common and least difficult problem is that the spark plugs may need to be changed.

No it should not stall if your alternator is good. It's not good to disconnect a battery with engine running. It can cause a spike and ruin the computer. It was ok to do that years ago before 1980.

If its a turbo car it will stall if the blow off valve is not shutting properly as the pressure drop is too much for the engine to keep turning, same with lpg when you idle the pressure in the engine drops and it will stall you can correct this by changing the timing
