Get a code reader to find out what computer codes are showing. You can buy them for under $50.00 or borrow/rent them from some of the auto parts stores around. *It sounds like a bad EGR valve,have it checked,Good Luck!

One reason that a 2000 GMC Jimmy engine stalls while driving could be your filter needing to be changed. The problem could also be a bad sensor.

Type your answer here... If the engine is not running after starting; yes, it has stalled.

The light comes on when the car stalls because the engine is not running and the pump therefore is not pumping. The pressure will always be 0 when the engine stalls and the light is directly related to pressure. This is normal, you have no problem, other than the engine stalling.

Because when the engine is sitting there not warmed up with any fluids running through the components, and suddenly it gets put into gear, it stalls to send a warning that the engine is still cold..always warm up a vehicle when the weather is cold! ALWAYS! even a new car, if its cold you must let the car work itself into driving conditions....try running a mile with absolutely no liquid running through you, see how many times YOU stall..

Sometimes a car stalls when driving though water because water got sucked up into the engine. This can cause a lot of damage, so don't attempt to restart the car after it stalls. Have the car towed so the engine can be stripped down and drained of the water.

If the engine stalls and won't restart for several hours on a 2003 Santa Fe, there is a problem with the computer in the vehicle. Check to make sure all computer fuses are working properly.

You are flooding the engine with fuel when you step down the pedal, and that stalls the engine. This is probably because your car timing is behind. A good tune-up and adjusting your ignition timing will solve this problem.

this question is to broad we need more information. b]But most likely if it stalls after running it could be your fuel pump going bad

Guess: Best Guess is defrost or AC are on and the engine is having trouble running the compressor. This is common on these cars when they have another fault with the way they run. Second best guess, The engine has a run problem, and the extra load causes it to be worse.

If a car engine stalls when turning, there could be a problem with the power steering pump. There could also be an issue with an emissions control device.

There can be many reasons a car stalls from poor fuel feed to lack of spark. By far, the main reason is poor driving technique.
