Only once.

It was after I had been running it pretty hard the night before. I went to start it up the next day and it ran like dog shit and stalled out. I pulled the TB and MAF off, cleaned them and haven't had a problem since.
it was probably 'cause it had to work extra hard to pull all that weight *cough:fatass:cough* :lol2: j/k

mine hasn't stalled out yet.

i'm with mc on this one, any problems i've seen with stalling have been due to the throttle body, or in my case due to loose spark plugs so if it keeps happening those are good places to start

Tie to rags together, length wise... Open fuel cap. Tuck the first rag into the tank, leaving the second as a wick. Light the wick and walk away.

All your problems will be solved. :naughty:

^ I think I would be RUNNING away! haha
The first rag is a 30-40 second timer... Look cool while walking away.

POS go boom. :doku2:

Another option would be, for once, to have a professional mechanic fix all the problems.. That is too common sense tho.. :)

that could be a torque converter thing. If you slow down too fast it makes your rpm's get too low and stalls the engine. Maybe not a huge problem but it can happen.
