You may be one of the many people that have only one car to depend on. Even if you do have another vehicle, a car that stalls while idling can be frustrating. The following are 2 reasons why your car may be stalling and how to solve them.
1. A Clogged Fuel Filter
Your vehicle, usually stalls for two reasons: either you don't have a proper electrical charge to ignite the fuel, or you don't have any fuel. One reason that your vehicle might not receive enough fuel to keep your car running is a clogged fuel filter.

When my husband and I went to buy our RV, I thought I had a good idea as to what I wanted. I knew what general options I wanted and what size. But, as I begin to explore the new options available, I realized that there were so many add-ons and upgrades that I had not even considered. I probably took more time to select an RV than I should have, simply because I wasn't prepared for all of the choices I had to make. I decided to start this website to let people know about all of the RV upgrades and options that they could select from when buying a new RV. If you are in the market for a new RV, hopefully this helps you decide what features are must-haves for you.
