This could be something simple as a vaccum leak, dirt air filter or more complicated as replacing the Idle Air Control Valve. Check your AIR FILTER, replace if dirty or worn out or old. Check your spark plugs, replace if old worn or damaged. Sparks may last up to 5 years or 6 months depending on your engine conditions. Oily plugs are a bad sign. Check your spark wires. If very old replace them. Inspect the vacumm hoses with soap water or shaving cream for bubles, hissss noise or like. If no leaks then think you may need to check the IAC ( Idle Air control valve ) for your car. This in conjuction with computer board are responsible for maintaining a stady idle rpm of your motor and to prevent stalling. Here ! email@example.com
Fuel injectors I'd assume. I have a fuel injector stuck open on my car and sometimes it stalls while accelerating. Check it out, maybe. These '93's have 100000 problems..
Why engine stalls on 1993 Chrysler Intrepid while driving and sometimes at stops?
The engine is choking. My '89 did it. Check the throttle body. It might need cleaned out.
Sounds like a torque converter lock up solenoid.
If car stalls out when accelerating above 40 MPH, it can possibly be caused by fluid leaks. Another reason can be a defect at the transmission.
I have a 1998 olds Intrigue and mine started doing that it was the crank shaft position sensor
try accelerating slowly. if it doesnt stall, you may have to keep accelerating slowly[until someone else can diagnose tyhe problem]
Could be EGR valve sticking open or dirty at an idling condition or hesitates when accelerating.
when kick down the gas pedal to accelerate, the car downshift but then stalls and then engine stays rough until i turn off the engine and restart it then the engine runs normal again till the next kick down.
Sounds like you might have a torque converter problem. It could also just be that you need a new transmission. Does it shutter when you back up? What do you mean when you say that it stumbles?
Fuel flow! either blockage in fuel pipe or float level in carb set incorrectly.
It is a safety feature. You must pull in the left brake lever fully to engage reverse, if you try to put it into reverse without doing so, the engine will kill.
try replacing the fuel filter
My 89 jeep Cherokee surges at idle and sometimes stalls but runs fine once you are going what could cause this?
2001 Honda accord it might be the crankshaft sensor or the knock sensor you might have to check the spark plugs too
I have same problem.
because your car has some problems i think you should buy another one :)
Check the EGR valve.
Dude, the engine is smoked. Sorry to have to tell you.
A car might stall when shifting from park to reverse if the idle is set too low. It is also possible that the engine stalls because it is not fully warmed up before shifting from park to reverse.
the choke could be sticking causing the car the flood
Sometimes the engine stalls while the captain is busy steering.
Replace the Idle Air Control Valve only about $50. This would cause funny idling and stalling out.
idle control valve faulty or needs cleaning
Possible failed torque converter, it will be worth the money to have someone look at it who is good with transmissions.
