Car died while driving

Heading to work this morning my car died going around 15 mph. Cold start and only drove for about 2 minutes before it died. Start it back up and it act like it was gonna die again so I gave it some gas. No problem afterwords. Iac problem? I noticed a couple months ago on warm start it will try to die unless i have the ac on.

Did it sound like it was choking or did it just stop? A sudden stop would point to alternator or other electrical, but that would also kill the battery. Did you check the vacuum lines? My wife's old protege choked and died and we found a huge hole in the intake tube.

Same thing here, it's your battery.

Just died out of nowhere. I thought i saw my lights dim but didn't have my glasses on to really tell. Then just a few seconds it died. No sound, no battery light. I'll get it tested and see.

Edited: got battery and alt check. Came out good. The guy said it might be fuel filter? I haven't changed it since I got the car. I've cleaned the throttle and maf.

yea fuel filters like 12 bucks. get motorcraft. very easy to change. grab a little fuel line disconnect tool. dont need an expensive one. under 10 bucks. let me know if you need more help. dont forget to depressurize the fuel.

worth changing anyway, since its old. but it still could be bad fuel or some water in the gas.

I have this happen too me in every new edge now that I have an air/fuel gauge I saw what happened when my car shut off randomly slowing down, I stopped getting fuel my a/f went up about 18.0 and my car died. Most the time especially if you have idle surges I notice the my car doesn't get much fuel after maybe pulling it out of a gear and slowing down. Usually it will get to 16.0 but if it goes any lower it just chokes and dies, I spray a wet 100 shot on my car my a/f is spot on, just a 2v thing, my buddies 06 f150 with a 2v has done this to.
