My 87 Ford F150 six cylinder stalls when it gets a little warm.

Asked by Feb 01, 2010 at 10:48 AM about the 1987 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My old work horse runs fine if the air temperature is cold, but when its warm it will stall at a stop light if a little fan comes on next to the throttle body. When you're idling at a light, if you hear that little fan come on you have about a minute to park it or it will stall and not start again for a few minutes. It is fuel injected. How do i fix this?
