Q: Truck stalls when loaded

asked by on

The truck starts, but when put under load, it stalls.

Hello. The stalling could be caused by several different things. The truck’s engine timing could be off, the air fuel mixture could be wrong, or the fuel pump might not be working as it should. My suggestion would be to have a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, complete a diagnosis on your stalling issue to isolate your problem and make the necessary repairs.
