Car Problem Diagnosis
If your car stalls when the engine is hot the only reason for the problem is an occurrence of vapor lock. Vapor lock is the boiling of gas before it gets into the car engine, this boiling happens when the engine is extremely hot. When a gas boils an air bubbles is causing the air/fuel mixture to be too lean, whereby the amount of air is more than the amount of gasoline, in this kind of scenario an engine will stalls.
