Why does my truck keep stalling in the cold weather?

I have a Chevy.

It probably has either a problem with the fuel system, or you may have water in you gas. Another likely culprit is that the thermostat is sticking and making the engine run to low. It never hurts to get a new thermostat as they are relatively cheap and easy to install.

Well depending on your year, make, and model I would say your engine doesn't get warm enough to run efficiently. when your engine is cold your choke comes on to feed the truck more fuel during idle. That fuel may be drowning your engine causing you to stall.

Chances are you have an intermittent current. Check battery and voltage. Other reason could be frozen fuel pump. Also check fuel filter. You might be too frigid with your truck.

If you truck keeps stalling check out changing the fuel pump. A family member had that problem and we ended up changing the fuel pump. Another suggestion is to put alcohol in with the gas. This will absorb any water (or condensation) that may have gotten in.

Your truck's transmission could be having some problems. I would have that checked out by your local mechanic. If this would be the problem you may need to have this replaced.

Sometimes in cold weather, autos can become resistant to heat intake and will go through a process called frostbite. It often occurs in the norther hemishpere.
