Q: Q: Why does my car keep stalling?

asked by on

Hi. My vehicle keeps jerking and stalling and I'm not sure what's causing this. Sometimes it won't even jerk before it stalls. It does it every time I drive. I've already replaced the fuel filter and that didn't solve the problem. I also just replaced the battery.I have put in more than one fuel treatments as well. I've even checked my fluids. I haven't had the money to have a diagnostics test done, so I'm trying to get a professionals opinion. Please let me know what you think. Thank you in advance.

My car has 148000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
