asked by on

My car has 115 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. This could be any number of things that could cause this. There is a sensor called an intake air temperature sensor that reads the ambient air temperature as it flows into your car’s engine. If this is faulty, this could possibly cause something like this to happen, however, a thorough diagnosis should be performed to be sure. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose the stalling problem and have this corrected properly.
