Ignition wires and the distributor cap need to be checked for cracks that allow cross flow of electricity from one wire to another. At night spray water on the wires and cap to see the sparks while engine is running. Replace wire set and cap as needed..

The thermostat control engine temperature. If it fails the engine can run hot or cold - that would happen long before over-heating caused the engine to stall.

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.

The stall of an aircraft can occur in two ways: 1. Wing stall and 2. Engine stall. 1. Wing stall is when the angle of attack (AOA) of the aircraft is too high (the angle between the airflow and the longitudinal axis of the aircraft). The optimum angle is 4°. Stall usually occurs at 15°. Stall occurs because the air flowing over a wing is insufficient to produce the pressure difference to produce the lift required. So in a wing stall, the weight of the aircraft is greater than the lift of the aircraft. 2. Engine stall occurs when the forward air speed of the aircrft is insufficient for the combustion of the fuel to take place. Ideal ratio is 14:1 (oxygen:fuel). If the ratio falls to much then the air becomes turbulent and causes the engine to 'choke'. An engine stall, if not corrected, will lead to a wing stall as the thrust required to produce the lift is insufficient, therefore the weight is the leading force.
