Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

    It's hard to know if your car actually has a fuel delivery problem rather than a tranmission problem. If the car doesn't accelerate smoothly, then it might feel like a shifting issue. I would get a code reader and scan the car for trouble codes, to see if anything turns up that could point to a reason for the stalling problem.

    Stalling has many many causes, from a tune-up being needed, to a vacuum leak, or EGR problems or throttle body issues.

    I know is the transmition because when i push the pedal to the floor runs fine and shift perfectly like a rece car...but when i drive normaly when the car need to shift 2nd to 3rd gear its like go blank like neutral or try to change to 1rst just for a sec then take the 3rd the thing is that the car dont do that when driving fast or aceleraron continiously or up a hill
