Hi,

This could be the result of several things. My first thoughts are related to a fuel issue. First, here is a link that you may find of interest. It deals with a stalling issue.

Can you tell me if the check engine light is staying on while the engine runs? If it does, we need to have the computer scanned for codes. Here is a quick video showing how it's done:

Most parts stores will do that for free, but it doesn't sound like the vehicle is drivable. So, see if there is a parts store near you that will lend or rent one to you. Scan the computer and let me know the codes.

Let me know if that is something you can do. If not, we'll have to take a different route for trouble shooting.

Let me know
Joe
