Need emergent help:00 Taurus, stalling
The car ran well yesterday when I was driving from Kalamazoo to Ann Arbor. I went to garage for brake inspection this morning. Nightmare then began. The technician took 20 minutes for drive test before visual check. He said the car stalled on the road. It never happened before. I towed the car back, and then found that the symptoms are as follows:
The engine started normally after I turned key. Idling is normal. It also sounds good if I put the shift in Park or Reverse position and press the gas pedal. However, the car will stall immediately if the shift is in Driving position and I depress the gas pedal.
By the way, the engine light has been on for several months. The error code is P0442-small vacuum leak. Is this somehow connected with the stalling
Could you help me to figure out what are the possible causes of this problem?
Thanks a million.
