My car keeps stalling (for the past two weeks) - there are no light coming on to indicate what the problem is - there seems to be a vacuum lock or something wrong with the fuel pump or fuel filter - I am not sure - sometimes when the car is stalling if I push down on the gas right to the floor nothing happens, then when I let my foot off the gas the car will stall or it will kick in but when I put my foot back on the gas it starts to stall or bogg out , what could the problem be?? Also the last couple of times (THIS AM) it stalled the battery light came on when I was restarting, why would this be? Thanks in advance for your help - - the snow has already come and don't want to get stranded anywhere

The battery light will come on when the engine idle is very low or if the engine has stalled, so I don't think that's related. I would start by checking the diagnostic trouble codes, is your check engine light on?

I am having the same problem. My car seems to only stall out when it is warm outside. Did you ever find the cause of this problem?
