How do I obtain possible proof my engine stalled on acceleration, hopefully thru codes

90

Asked by Sep 06, 2014 at 01:09 AM about the 2001 Ford Windstar LX

Question type: General

I basically need proof that my engine stalled out, and am looking to find out if anyone, or anybody knows of anyone that the same thing has happened to you or them and how did you determine that it was the engine stalling out on you whether or not you have had an accident or have came awful freakin close. are there codes that tell whomever that either yes, this vehicle stalled on acceleration or no it did not. I did a recall search online and found that the fuel system has a recall on it, but I am not a mechanic and do or do not know if that would be the cause of Wednesdays crash

Owch! If the battery is still intact you can hook up a scanner to it and get anything that's stored in the ECU.
