fuel injectors need to be cleaned and/or fuel filter needs to be replaced..it can also be for numerous reasons..like a bad sensor or an early indication of a failing ecu..but in most cases it's one of the 2 fore mentioned faults.if you do clean the injectors and replace the fuel filter and the car continues to 'stall' then IMMEDIATELY stop using it and see a mechanic because if it's a failing ecu; continuance of operating the car will blow the ecu beyond repair, ecus are expensive to replace and without it the car will be written-off. -freebsdkid

If it is a standard transmission, you would need to slowly let out the clutch while backing up.

A car will stall when accelerating between 25 and 40 miles per hour due to a vacuum leak. When the cars computer cannot properly read the how much fuel to inject due to erratic air ratios the engine is prone to stall at random times.

Is it low on Anti-Freeze? That is a known issue for a car to stall!

When it dies, is it a sudden stall, or does it run rough, and then die? If its sudden, it is most likely a electrical problem, but if it runs rough, or dies when accelerating, it might be mechanical. Such as the fuel lines, carb, etc.

Almost classic example of fuel filter gone bad.

If car stalls out when accelerating above 40 MPH, it can possibly be caused by fluid leaks. Another reason can be a defect at the transmission.

My girlfriends 97 was doing the same thing....it turned out to be the ignition switch.It started to stall intermittently (once every couple days)then yesterday it would not run at all unless you held the key in start position. Take a test drive and giggle the key to see if it shuts of.

Your Dodge Durango may stall when idling at a stop light for a couple of reason. One reason may be that a part needs to be replaced on the car.

One reason why a Mitsubishi Star Wagon will stall when accelerating is bad spark plugs. Another reason is a bad oxygen sensor or the throttle position sensor.

I replaced the crank sensor and the cam pick up that is under the distributor cap and still the wrangler wants to stall or back fires and bucks at 1200 to 2000 RPM when accelerating

Fuel injectors I'd assume. I have a fuel injector stuck open on my car and sometimes it stalls while accelerating. Check it out, maybe. These '93's have 100000 problems..

The dealer says it is a faulty abs module causing the engine to go into shut down. no recall from Ford.

Yes, a bad O2 sensor would cause a 2002 Dodge Dakota to stall. It would also cause bad fuel mileage and hard idling within the vehicle.
