Q: My car stalls at slow speeds (bumper to bumper).

asked by on

My car stalls at slow speeds (bumper to bumper). I have taken it in to be looked at and they are unable to replicate this issue.

My car has 165000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello there, a few faults could cause the vehicle to stall at low speeds. The most common faults would be with the cooling fan, MAF sensor, power brake booster, vacuum leak, fuel pump, or ignition coil. I’d suggest getting help from a qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to diagnose your stalling issue and perform any repairs required.
