Q: Randomly stalls when driving

asked by on

Randomly stalls when driving it starts doing it after 10mins of driving

My car has 146000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This may be related to many different things such as fuel-related issues like dirty or leaking fuel injectors, a bad mass air flow sensor, low fuel pressure. Depending on the symptoms prior to the truck stalling, this may also be related to ignition issues as well such as a faulty or intermittent ignition coil or crankshaft position sensor. If the truck stalls and then starts back up like normal and continues to drive normally for a while before stalling again, this may be related to a failing ignition coil. If the idle or running of the engine is rough, this may more likely be related to a fuel supply issue as mentioned above. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to properly diagnose your vehicle’s stalling issues.
