What would cause my car to keep stalling?

Answer #1

If it is cold where you live, your car will need more power to start. If your battery is old, it might be that the battery can’t provide that amount of power.

Get a loader cable and reload your battery. Then start your motor on “P” (if its an automatic) or on no gear (if it has a stick shift) and hit the gas pedal as soon as it makes the first sound. Then drive some distance to fully reload the battery.

If you can’t start with a reloaded battery, ask someone to repair the car.

Stalling could be lots of things. It could be a bad Engine Control Unit (ECU), exhaust oxygen sensor, mass air flow sensor, worn fuel injectors, plugged PCV valve or fuel system vent, fowled spark plugs or cylinder carbon buildup. I’m sure there are lots more I haven’t thought of.
