You may want to look at your alternator as the cause. Good luck Your problem could be the alternator or alternator belt. Check belt first for wear or slippage, then check the alternator. NOTE: DO NOT disconnect the battery while the engine is running to test the alternator. In years past you could get away with this, but with modern cars, more sensitive electronics, etc., disconnecting the load (battery) from the alternator causes voltage spikes which WILL damage electronics and burn out headlights. You can turn a simple ~$100 repair into a major repair, $1000 or more, by doing this. If you don't know how to test an alternator, or if you don't have the proper equipment to do so, have the alternator tested at your local garage. They'll do this for a nominal fee, and will apply it to the repair charge if the alternator is bad and you decide to have them replace it.
a loose transmission or shifter rod might move the gears around a bit and make it stall
There are several things that can cause your 1990 Volvo 740 to stall while driving. The most common cause is a bad fuel pump.
When driving the IAC does not do anything because the car is not at an idle
A dodge pickup 1500 would stall out while driving because of a defective air filter.
crankshaft position censor
main fuel relay going bad. Eventually car will cut off while driving.
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. A bad starter would cause the car not to start.
Your a bad driver get a license
Bc is not enough air in the intake....
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.
Torque Converter Clutch Solenoid is a possibility.
the problem may be that the timing chain or belt has broken
It can lead to an accident
prob a vacume leak
Could be many reasons such as bad alternator, or bad fuel pump.
I had my "distributor pick-up" replaced. car would just die out, while i was driving.
Yupp Clogged fuel filter. Hole in the gas line.
Fuel delivery problem. Maybe a plugged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump.
Your timing could be off.
Check the crank angle sensor usually about $150 to replace
If the check engine light has come on, have the codes read. That would be a good place to start.
I had the same problem. It would stall out after coasting down a hill. Cleaned the throttle body about six months ago. Has not stalled since then.
perhaps if it was loose or the conductor was cracked.
sounds like a crankshaft positioning sensor. must be at low speeds and stop signs?
