When driving the car sometimes stall what is the reason?

When i start the cruiser to drive i listened to the ideling and sound if it going up and down slightly

Sounds if the idling is to low

Then get the stal problems

I just bought the car second hand
What can be the cause?

    Is the check engine light on? If so, get the code. It could be a number of problems but it sounds like either a bad fuel pump or a failing cam positioning sensor.

    The engine light does not come on..

    Iservice the car minor service but coyld not replace the petrol filter cause its inside the fuel tank

    Not sure how to get it out the fuel tank.

    So u mean the pt also have a sensor for the idling?

    The ref counter does not work and are being replaced (VSS)

    Can that also be the cause for the bad idling?

    On most cars changing the fuel filter requires dropping the tank but that would also allow you to check the fuel pump. The camshaft positioning sensor feeds data to the engine computer telling it how much fuel to feed the engine. Usually a bad sensor causes a check engine light.

    It might help if you took it to a mechanic with the appropriate diagnostic tools. Throwing parts at a problem can get expensive quick.
