Hi all,

My 2003 XT keeps stalling when I first drive it like in the morning or when I leave work in the evening. Once it has stalled a couple of times (only when sitting in traffic) it's fine and wont stall again but if I drive for like an hour then park it to go shopping or whatever, when I come back it just wont start....I sit there for 5 to 10 minutes then try and start it again and away we go, she turns over first time.

This problem is really intermittent and only happens now and again, it will stall every day for like 3 days then wont stall at all for like a whole week.

I don't get it....could it be something to do with the turbo timer?

Help much appreciated

Not really sure what your problem is, but you may want to explain it better.

From what I read, you can start the car but it shuts off while in traffic once in a while. Then other times, while trying to start the car, it won't turn over at all, but if you wait, it will turn over and start? I would say this intermittent no turn over is battery related, like dirty battery connections.

I have no idea what a "turbo-timer' is and have never heard that term.
Someboby else will no doubt clarify........
