How to Fix a Car That Stalls



to adjust the timing. With the

right tools and know how, this is
an easy and free task. If your
vehicle has fuel injection, you
can check the injector by using
a screwdriver or mechanics
scope. The injectors will make a
clicking/snapping sound if
working. No sound may indicate
a bad injector available at most

also indicate an electrical failure
with the circuit that drives the
fuel injector. Also, check the

control motor that controls the
air mixture.


The stall is likely caused by

either a problem in the
electrical system or in the
fuel system.

If your car diesels when you

turn off the ignition, it means
that your car most likely has
a carburetor and the idle
speed adjustment is too high.


In rare cases, your car may

stall due to what is
commonly called a "vapor
lock", a situation that occurs
when the fuel lines supplying
gas to the engine become hot
enough to boil the gas in the
line turning it into vapor. Fuel
pumps are designed to pump
liquid not vapor and thus fail
to provide enough fuel
pressure. However, a clogged
fuel tank vent system can
cause a vacuum in the fuel line
that causes fuel to eventually
stop reaching the engine. This
also is a problem unique to
carburated engines. Fuel
injected engines commonly
have "closed loop" fuel delivery
systems that make this
condition unlikely to occur. Try
opening your gas cap. If you
hear a "whooshing" sound, like
when you open a can of coffee,
it means the gas tank is not
venting properly. Now try
starting the car. It should work
after a couple tries. This is
usually found only in older cars.
If you have it, this will probably
happen again, so your tank
vent system should be checked
for blockage. More often than
not, the problem can be traced
to a cheap replacement locking
gas cap. A cheap fix is to drill a
small hole in your gas cap to
allow air in and prevent the
vacuum from forming, but the
gas cap should not be left this
