I put gas and my van its goes out

My car has 2000 miles.
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

There can be several reasons for your van to go out. The fault may or may not be directly related to the gasoline that you are adding. You should have the fuel tank vent system checked and purge valve checked to see if they are leaking. If you would like to have someone check this out for you, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to diagnose the stalling issue and let you know what needs to be done.
